The ‘Benfro’ and other Benfica based haircutsBy: jamesmartin | November 10th, 2010
Iâ€™ve been thinking about going for a new hair style for a whileÂ now and thought to myself why not look to the Benfica squad for inspiration? After all surely every single one of the players who representÂ the best club in Portugal must have cool hair right?
After searching through the club photos three players stood out in particular, namely Pablo Aimar, Roderick Miranda and David Luiz, who areÂ allÂ Â sporting what I like to call the ‘Benfro’;
The club has dismissed reports that Vitoria the eagle nests in Pablo’s hair.
Yep these three have clearly been eating their crusts, because those luscious locks are about as curly as can be.Â Â If, like me, you are naturally blessed with hair of the curly variety this is an easy style to imitate, simply let your hair grow and you will have a Benfro all of your own.Â Those of you have lack the necessary curls do not despair!Â Simply borrow your mothers curling tongs, or if that fails stick on a curly brown wig.
Another interesting style is the â€˜Nunoâ€™ sported by; you guessed it, Nuno Gomes!Â Straight and slick this look obviously works wonders for old Nuno, as his hairstyle doesnâ€™t seem to have changed in the last decade.Â
Slick as ever.
Not convinced by the Benfro or Nuno?Â Well why not follow the example of Luisao and dispense with hair all together?
Â Who needs hair anyway?
So there you have it, it seems that the players of Benfica have a hair cut to suit everyoneâ€™s tastes.Â As for me, I think I might give the Benfro ago, after all if it turns out badly I can always do a Luisao!
