Spanish footballer Hector Bellerin has been making a mark not only on the football field but also in the fashion world. His high fashion looks and an understanding of experimentational styling has recently made him British Vogue-approved. This 23-year-old has achieved so much in so little time, that his transition from a boy to a man has been one to watch out for. He doesn’t shy away from trying on things beyond football, whether it’s clothing, new hobbies, or newer ventures in the real world. Just like his flair for dressing well and dressing differently than the others, his hairstyles are also always setting the bar for more.
When Hector joined Arsenal in 2013, he was merely a teenager with boyish charms that could make any girl swoon. He is seen sporting the most common and modern hairstyle for boys – the undercut. This style can be manipulated in a lot of ways, but Hector’s favourite seemed to be the undercut comb over pomp.
A youngish looking Bellerin moved on from the undercut to the crew cut, we are sure he was just sticking to the trends and settling into the hairstyle groove. With a bald fade and bit more length at the crown, this cut doesn’t fail to give Hector a funky twist. We’re guessing this is where his affinity towards changing hairstyles began, and we couldn’t be more thankful for it!
Seen in one of the most classic hairstyles ever, Hector Bellerin in a side parting marked his transition from boy to man in terms of his style sense. As he hit the 20s, he matured as a player and so did his hairstyles. Bellerin is sporting a very man-ish look with the side parting hairstyle. Gone are the fades, he brought in the long hair starting here.
This is where Hector secured a permanent place in the hearts of football fans cum fashion enthusiasts. Long hair can be called Hector’s USP when it comes to the style department, and we’re definitely sold. It was probably the evolution phase where the Arsenal right-back was just being patient with his hair growth. However, he knew how to bring style into this period as well.
Taking his wavy long hair up a notch, we have Hector in his most iconic hairstyle ever – the top knot. This hairstyle has all our votes for setting the top knot trend among youngsters. He has sported this style for the longest time now, and even though his Instagram story in January suggested he’d cut off his knot, that was just a scare for us. He only trimmed the edges, but he sure scared us with that suspenseful picture.
