    If you haven’t heard of Hugo Lloris then you’re missing out. This gorgeous 35-year-old French footballer is the goalkeeper and captain for the Premier League club Tottenham Hotspurs as well as the France national team and is a three-time winner of the UNFP (National Union of Professional Footballers) League 1 Goalkeeper of the award. Now that’s one impressive resume! 

    Lloris started his exciting career back in his hometown football club OGC Nice where he made his debut as a teenager in 2005 then moved in goal only a year later during their run up to Coupe de la Ligue Final. The young teen continued to excel at the club for the next three seasons marking a notable name for himself before moving to the seven-time Ligue 1 champion team Olympique Lyonnais despite having interest from even more notable clubs such as Milan. Hugo Lloris’ career has only gone upwards and onwards from the point he has won numerous awards and nominations for his outstanding football. He then joined Tottenham in 2012 and helped the team reach the Champions League final in 2019!

    He is known to be a “quietly-spoken yet authoritative figure” who always knows how to leave behind a good impression – be that on or off the football pitch. And if we’re being honest, he isn’t all that bad to look at either. Just like all footballers Hugo Lloris has an exemplary grooming routine and great hairstyle! So, we have put together a step-by-step style guide to help you recreate the Hugo Lloris haircut.

    This haircut is simple to do and easy to style and pretty much fits with any occasion. It will stay in place for a whole 90-minute football game when you’re covered in sweat and wearing a pair of shorts and will also look exceptionally good when paired with a three-piece suit for a special occasion. Hugo Lloris is a man that sure knows how to pick a hairstyle that goes with everything. 

    How To Cut: 

    First, book an appointment with your barber and ask for a short back and sides with a small quiff. For the back and sides started with a #3 at the bottom and taper it up into a #3. You want the hair to be short but not short enough to see through to the scalp. This gives your hair a neat but full look. For the top hair you want to leave some length, so you are able to pull off the style so point cut into the hair at around 5-6 inches in length. To keep everything looking tidy you can taper it off a bit towards the crown of the head but not too much as you don’t want your hair to look too short.

    How To Style: 

    • Make sure your hair is nice and wet to start. It’s best to aim for damp hair and not soaking wet. You don’t want any water dripping on you or your clothes while you’re styling. 
    • Now it's time for some product. Scoop up a pea-sized amount of the Matte Lava Clay and warm the product up between your fingertips until it is soft. This is a great product for giving your hair that natural, matte look as well as providing your hair with a hold that lasts all day long. It is also perfect for keeping hair in place during vigorous exercise (such as a 90-minute football game). 
    • Apply a product starting at the back of the head and then moving it forward. This is so the front of your hair doesn’t get too heavy with product. Make sure to apply the product from root to tip. Use your fingertips to style your hair upwards to give it a bit of lift. 
    • Next you will need a hairdryer and a wide toothed hair brush. Set your hairdryer to a low heat and start blow drying your upwards and back. At the same time use the brush to manoeuvre your hair into your desired style (use image above as a reference). 
    • Once hair is dry and hair is in place blast your hair with the coldest setting on your hairdryer to lock your look in place and reinforce it for the whole day. 


    If you would really like to perfect the Hugo Lloris look then try growing out some facial hair. Anything from a sexy five o’clock shadow to a trimmed, clean beard will put you on par with the sexy Frenchman.
