Lionel Messi: Textured Cut With Short Back And Sides

4.0 4 Star

Lionel Messi’s textured cut with short back and sides is a look he’s favoured for a while now.

Though he’s upped the texture a little, and had it cropped a bit shorter at the sides and back.

A small tweak just in time to start his new contract at Inter Miami, the USA football team that David Beckham co-owns.

MFH says

Lionel Messi’s textured cut with short back and sides is one of the better cuts in his hairstyle playbook.

Because he is a man that has danced with the disaster on more than one occasion.

There was the not-quite-mullet back in the days when they weren’t even ironically cool.

And the less said about 2016s platinum blonde look, the better – especially as he paired it with a naturally dark, thick beard).

But the 36 year old superstar footballer has finally found his hair groove.

Hair might not maketh the man [or woman], but a good cut sure as hell maketh you show the photo to your hairdresser and say ‘I’ll have what he’s having.’
