Undercuts: Zlatan Ibrahimovic vs. Olivier Giroud

Zlatan Ibrahimovic vs. Olivier Giroud

With the Euro 2016 happening now, let us help you decide which of these cuts to get: the undercut sported by Olivier Giroud's or Zlatan Ibrahimovic's man bun?

Olivier Giroud's undercut

The hairstyle

The traditional undercut is a combination of two styles: Short, shaved hair that is cropped on the sides with luscious long locks on the top. This works with most hair types as it can be fashioned into slight variations of the undercut very easily. Some people grow out the top section of the hair and sweep it back, but it is usually maintained at one or two inches of length.

The style

The most popular style for guys right now is definitely the undercut. With its sporty, chic, hipster and edgy vibes, it is a versatile look that can pretty much be carried off for any occasion. This style is not limited by gender but seems to more often be seen on male athletes. A reason for this could be that their hair is long enough to style differently, but short enough that it doesn't diminish their vision while playing.

What the editors say

The undercut and a well-groomed beard is a classic look that makes everyone look clean cut and fashionable – definitely a good choice for any day!

Zlatan Ibrahimovic's man bun

The hairstyle

For guys who love longer hair, the man bun has become a very popular trend. With hair length ranging from chin-length to much longer, a man bun is secured atop the head as a top knot or sometimes fashioned as a samurai bun to keep it chic and in check.

The style

In biblical times, long hair was an indication of strength – and it seems to be back in the fashion books for the same reasons! A long way from the curls that were popular, longer hair put up in the form of a bun and coupled with strong facial hair is the trending style.

What the editors say

Zlatan would be unrecognisable without his signature man bun! This athlete has boosted this hairstyle as a symbol of athleticism and we can see that it is here to stay – every variation of it and we love it!
