The Disappearing Faux-Hawk
Footballers over the past season have coveted the studly appearance of the bad boy faux-hawk. Players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, David Beckham, Alan Smtih, Cesc Fabregas, and David Bentley have sported the do, some pulling it off better than others. But some players have changed their style to deviate from the now overly used faux-hawk.
David Bentley has chosen what I like to some might call a pageboy hair style. (So conservative, it has its very own political party.) If he weren’t so willing to take off his shirt, I would have thought he would prefer to don a turtleneck and study philosophy with the pompous lads at Oxford. Lose the side part kiddo.
Alan Smith has gone from faux-hawk to emo flathead. This isn’t nearly as much of a deviation in comparison to Mr. Bentley, so it’s a bit easier to handle. Smudger likes the skateboarding, motocross, MotoGP business, so it’s actually quite fitting. I can see him head banging in his flat up at the Toon to some punk rock while watching the X-Games on the telly (shirtless perhaps).
