Olivier Giroud is a man with great hair, there's no doubting that! The France and Chelsea striker has found himself as a hair icon over the past few years, since his move to English football. We've all seen those Giroud before and after a haircut and beard memes, haven't we?
And as well as helping France get to the semi finals of the World Cup, he also seems to find time to keep his hair looking sharp before the games.
So what is the Olivier Giroud 2018 haircut and how can you get the hairstyle?
The Olivier Giroud haircut is essentially a disconnected pompadour. One side of the hair has a disconnect and the opposite side is blended in. Giroud also wears this with a medium to low drop fade on the back and sides.
To get something similar to the Olivier Giroud haircut, you ideally want around 3-5 inches in the fringe area, getting shorter towards the back of the head.
As you can see in the picture below, Giroud's fade starts shorter in the side and drops into a longer / darker length through the back - the sides are around a 0.5 to 1 dropped into around a 1 to 2 in length through the back. Giroud also has his beard faded in through the cheeks to the side of the hair.
As always though, it's best to just show your barber a picture to help achieve the look that you want! Your hair type, thickness and colour will all depend on how this style may look on you.
Oliver Giroud wears his hair with a wet, slicked back look so to replicate this hairstyle we'd suggest a water based pomade with a medium to high shine. This style will really be won or lost with the blow dryer as that's what will help achieve the volume that Giroud has, so make sure to educate yourself on how to use one properly.
