Read on to find out how to get the best Olivier Giroud haircut.
When you head to your barber looking to create this Olivier Giroud haircut, ask for a disconnected pompadour with a drop fade. Disconnected means you will want one side of the hair to have a disconnect and the other side to be blended in. Aim for 3-5 inches for the top hair and then slowly taper it shorter towards the back. When it comes to the fade the sides will be shorter starting around a #1 and dropping down into a heavier length through the back with a #2. (Show the picture below for reference to the fade). Don’t forget to neaten everything up and blend in your beard in that true Ground fashion.
Enjoy looking like the hottest player in the league!
