With the IPL in full fervour, stadiums are full with roaring applauses and loud cheers. The tension and electrical energy in the air is palpable, transferring from one to the other. Amidst all the effervescence and high-spiritedness of the game, we shift our focus to the players who’re giving us hairstyling goals and trending looks. We’ve got you five trending looks influenced by IPL players to ape. Jot down their style guides and get inspired.
A must feature on this list—the batting maestro—Chris Gayle brings to mind unbelievable batting, thunderous applauses and loud cheers in a stadium. Known for his amazing cricketing skills, the West Indies player is equally popular for his long dreadlocks. Though they definitely look grungy and need constant maintenance, the look adds a fun and sporty element to his personality.
Known for literally punching power into every game he plays, Indian skipper Virat Kohli has carved a niche for himself as not just a great cricketer but as a stylish one too. Captaining his team to many victories, he especially does it in style every time. His undercut side updo look is a definite winner. It is an uber cool, stylish, short and neat hairstyle that can be worn by anyone wanting to flaunt his style.
The Sri Lankan bowling genius is admired for his impressive and badass bowling skills on field. But he’s equally known for his bouncy, curly locks as well. He is often seen carrying off the bleached, blonde look giving his curls a distinct look; or grows them long to make his hair bounce when he’s bowling. Men, try this look if you want to ditch the regular and spruce up your style a bit.
Francois Du Plessis
The South African skipper is recognised for his air slicing and applause worth skills. His ever smiling face has managed to capture the hearts of many. Keeping it simple and classy with his hairstyle, Francois Du Plessis looks best in the gel spiked hairstyle he always adorns. The soft spikes definitely give us serious cuteness goals. The look is effortless and requires minimum fuss, a perfect one for guys who spend minimum amount of time on their hair.
Certainly one of the most handsome and stylish cricket players in the world, Brett Lee has always been a heartthrob. One of the fastest bowlers in the world, Brett Lee went onto gaining a cult status as a fiery bowler. Though he was a dreadful sight for most batsmen, his trademark frosty blonde locks worked magic with the women. The short messy and spiked hairstyle look that he wore most of the time went onto become iconic just like him.
