Forget Jack’s ability to draw a foul and get free kicks – it’s his lush, shiny, swingy bonce that’s the talk of the beautiful game.
Whether it’s slicked back with short back and sides; or the lengths on top are French plaited (a footballer first, MHF believes), or he’s flicking around his current, iconic 90s throwback curtains, his hair looks are as closely observed as his pitch tactics.
Such is the interest in the Jack Grealish curtain haircut, he even gave details of his hair regime in an interview recently.
Unfortunately he didn’t specify the brands of shampoo and conditioner brands he uses (as a rich footballer, we assume he opts for the spenny stuff). And did advise that he leaves the conditioner in for a few minutes.
“Obviously when I get out the shower it’s still a bit wet, so I dry it,” the Brummie told former Love Islander Josh Denzel in the interview.
“Then I put Moroccan oil in it. Whack the hairdryer out, get the hairbrush…
“When I’ve dried it with the hairdryer, the Moroccan oil is still in there a bit, then I put hair bond in it, like a wax, to style it. And then I use hairspray, yellow ‘got2B’, at the end. Just to hold it.”
That’s when we assume he pops in his Alice band, if he’s playing.
It’s just a shame we can’t unsee those memes comparing his curtains to Kiera Knightley’s Bend It Like Beckham look…
- The top of your hair needs to come down to around ear length.
- You can opt for an undercut underneath. Or you can ask for a high skin fade – whatever you and your barber think works best for your hair.
- If your hair is super thick like Jack’s, the barber may suggest some subtle layers to take the heaviness out of the hair.
- It’s all about using really nourishing shampoos and conditioners.
- Don’t wash your hair every day if you can avoid it. Every two or three days is enough, if it hasn’t been sweaty or overloaded with product.
- When you dry your hair, ensure you don’t rub it too hard with your towel as that will encourage frizz.
- Wrap it in an old cotton T-shirt and allow it to dry naturally for as long as possible.
- When it’s nearly dry, add in a little Moroccanoil like Jack, and use a hairdryer on medium heat.
- Using a vented brush, lift the hair up as you blow dry, to give it as much volume as Jack’s.
- Then add a little texture with some clay.
- Push it out of your face with a thin, black Alice band.
