While the Rugby World Cup starts, players hope to draw attention to their skills on the field, but it may be their elaborate hairstyles that really steal the show.
Although footballers are known for their love of care, players from all over the world have shown that they are equally partial with a striking topiary.
The English player Joe Marler, for example, has linked his pale blonde crest to a bushy dark beard, while the French Maxime Medard seems to be turning back the clock to the 70s with his bushy sideburns.
It comes as fans wait for the long-awaited kick-off just before noon today, with the first match between host country Japan and Russia.
England player Joe Marler had chosen a clear British and & # 39; male & # 39; trim with his trim, according to hairdresser James Johnson
Russian player Andrey Garbuzov, however, seemed to have opted for the & # 39; bowl cut & # 39; that may have been done by his & # 39; mother or wife & # 39;
Hair stylist James Johnson said that Joe Marler – who plays as a loose prop – is very British and masculine & # 39; looks with his rugged beard and & # 39; half attempt of a fashionable crest & # 39 ;.
However, he is less flattering about the fringed style of the Russian player Andrey Garbuzov and wonders if it is the handiwork of his mother or wife.
& # 39; I recommend using a ceramic bowl to compete with this look, because plastic sometimes curves in the dishwasher and would result in a tangled haircut everywhere, & he said.
& # 39; Who would want to cut an unbalanced bowl? But I do like the longer hairs over the ears, this makes the overall look much softer, especially for a rugby player with a hard face. & # 39;
The French player Maxime Medard seemed to be trying to turn the clock back to the 70s with his long bushy side burns
Georgian player Lasha Malaguradze was for a & # 39; soft & # 39; look gone, but one that might be difficult to hold together in the field
And for the French player Maxime Medard, he said that the sideburns from the 70s should not return & # 39 ;.
& # 39; This should be addressed from the start … side burns should stop around the middle of the ear & # 39 ;, he said.
& # 39; For longer shape faces, these fade out to make the face longer. & # 39;
Talking about some of the other crazy and impractical hairstyles that are expected to hit the field this year, he said that the Lasha Malaguradze of Georgia is a & # 39; bold statement & # 39; and & # 39; hard to draw & # 39; chosen style.
& # 39; Very soft, an elegant appearance on the field & he said.
& # 39; It will need some strong hair spray to balance it during some tackles! & # 39;
Jack Goodhue from New Zealand seemed to echo David Beckham with his mullet. The style that the football player could not get is something that & # 39; no one else should try & # 39 ;, according to the hairdresser
For the Japanese Shota Horie, however, he was complementary. & # 39; Japan has style & # 39 ;, he stated, & # 39; he takes the lead and is very much in trend & # 39;
After looking at David Beckham's mullet, attracted by Jack Goodhue, downtown New Zealand, he said that & # 39; no one else would try the style & # 39; after even the football player could not have done it.
& # 39; Unless the hairdressers have a half price for half a haircut, the hair needs to be cut everywhere & he said.
& # 39; I assume it can keep your neck warm on the rugby field! & # 39;
For the Japanese Shota Horie, however, he was much more impressed.
& # 39; Japan has style & # 39 ;, he said, & # 39; he leads the field and is very much in trend.
& # 39; Perhaps more suitable for a video clip, he certainly brings that coolness and an urban atmosphere that would not normally be accompanied by rugby! & # 39;
& # 39; I appreciate having the hair easily in dreads, especially during exercise. It can be tied and designed in a cool style! & # 39;
He also praised S & # 39; busiso Nkosi from South Africa for his cool face and braids
For Nkosi & # 39; s teammate RG Snyman, however, he was less impressed. The hairdresser said the player should form & # 39; anywhere & # 39; and should consider putting his hair in a man's bun
He was also an addition to the choice of South African player S & # 39; busiso Nkosi and said the player had a & # 39; hip hop vibe & # 39; in his hair.
& # 39; A cool, trendy skin fade mixed with a certain unique strip in a pony!
& # 39; He has made his USP on the field that I am sure he can do when scoring a try, although I would not like to get it in the scrum. & # 39;
However, he had less compliments for his teammate RG Snyman, who he said he looked like he needed a shape everywhere! & # 39;
& # 39; Those curls must be defined and that beard must be cut!
& # 39; We have recently seen a growth in men with longer hair, I see this player fully come into its own as he pushes through this phase in a man's roll!
& # 39; He would fit his tied hair … a look that many nowadays wear, and probably much more suitable for the field! & # 39;
