The 8 Hottest Hairstyles Represented in RIO 2016 Olympics

You’ve probably already watched The 2016 Rio Olympic Games… And we all know what this means, right?
SPORTY and HANDSOME men with many different and AWESOME hairstyles!

The Olympics have forever been inundated with super cool athletes from all around the world and if we know you guys well, you already had the chance to spot them.

Well, are you RIO-Ready for a Rio Olympics hairstyles update? Here are the 8 hottest athletes hairstyles at The Rio Olympics 2016.

Miles Chamley-Watson

Say hello to Miles Chamley-Watson – he is a British-born American fencer! He’s got mad sword fighting skill, a body full of tatts and a crazy blond hairstyle.

Platinum blonde afro textured hairstyle

Miles Chamley is rocking an awesome bleached hairstyle! Maybe it’s a style, you want to try? But really, this style takes guts! Bleached hair has certainly had celebrity trend moments. But if you have dark, brown or black hair, your hair will likely need more than one bleach process. You also have to be aware of, that your hair is more at risk of turning out orange instead of platinum. If you have natural blond hair, the bleach will naturally be easier. But if you’re ROCKING the afro or have really dark hair, don’t be disappointed!

If Miles Chamley, who has Afro textured and dark, brown hair, can pull off this look, so can you! Remember, bleached hair is hard work. It’s hard to get right. And once you do have that perfect platinum color, you’ll need to invest time styling it!

Take a look at this video and watch how-to-get platinum blonde hair! 

Camille Lacourt

Meet Camille Lacourt! He is a handsome French competitive swimmer and backstroke specialist. Really, who doesn’t want to look like Lacourt and be the best swimmer in backstroke?

FACTS: Camille Lacourt competed at the 2012 Olympics in the 100-metre individual backstroke and 4×100-metre medley relay events and finished in fourth and tenth place.

Surfer hairstyle

Handsome Camille Lacourt looks like a real supermodel and surfer with his semi-causal hairstyle. It’s wispy, wavy and has thin blonde hair highlights which makes it natural and totally hot! This surfer hairstyle seems never to go out of fashion and it only requires that you wash your hair with shampoo, conditioner and add a good shake of styling. Make this style looks more natural by side parting your hair with your fingers like Camille Lacourt does it.

Ryan Lochte (…is now a Silver FOX)

Ryan Lochte just showed up at his fourth Olympics with a new hairdo! A look that has surprised most fans. Lochte says it’s blue, but the Internet says it’s grey… What do you think of his new, blueish, grey hair?

FACTS: Ryan Steven Lochte is an American competitive swimmer and an 11-time Olympic medallist (five gold, three silver, three bronze).

Short messy hairstyle

Is Ryan Lochte’s new look HOT or NOT? No matter what this looks like, is completely unique and definitely not natural. But, Lochte can pull it off and still look really handsome. With a short messy haircut, the colour gives him some edge and badness and makes the whole look more natural. A short messy hairstyle works great for all hair types by using the right styling products.

Luca Dotto

The girls want him and the boys talk about him – Luca Dotto – an Italian badass swimmer. Let us focus on his natural and trendy hairstyle!

Short spiky quiff

Luca Dotto is pulling off an awesome short spiky quiff – and the great thing about this haircut is, that it has the ability to look really neat and polished OR like a messy bedhead look – which is a huge trend for men’s hairstyle.

Wavy short surfer hairstyle

Why not go for the surfer style, when you’re a professional swimmer? Really, Marcelo perfectly matches this look, because of his skills in swimming! But today the surfer look is not only for surfers, swimmers or the hippie culture. Marcelo’s surfer style is shorter than traditionally, which makes it a casual, elegant and badass look. Remember a shorter surfer haircut requires more grooming to achieve!

Rhys Howden

We’re all agree, RIGHT? Rhys Howden is quite handsome and is one of the coolest water polo players at OL in RIO 2016. Rhys is maybe known for his long hair (side part or slicked back with fingers). But this year he pulls of a trendy and traditionally haircut – Long Hair Fade!

Rhys Howden is an Australian water polo player, who competed in the 2008 Summer Olympics and this years Olympics.

Long hair fade

Fade haircuts have been very popular among men! This haircut has generally been popular for men with short hair, but lately, guys have been combining a high fade with medium or long hair on top. Although there are many variations of this haircut, the idea behind all the variations is the same. A fade is ideal for both formal and casual look, and offers you and your hairstylist an opportunity to experiment with different looks in one style!

Tell us, who do you think is the most awesome athlete at the RIO Olympics? And who pulls off the most handsome hairdo?
