We always wanted to know what hair styling products footballers use so we did some digging. We at footballershair.com found the answer in the Hairbond United Kingdom hair care brand who actually already call themselves the “Premier League of Hair Styling Products”. And it doesn’t take long to realise why!
We discovered the brand was established back to around 2010 and they have since been smashing the global hair styling category with premium, high quality ingredient styling products and advertising and promoting the product range through top footballer endorsements.
After thorough market research, we had no choice but to rank them number ONE for our “Footballers Hair / Footballers Product Choice” when it comes to styling products. Check out the long list of top football players we found giving Hairbond some TLC..
Leicester FC + International players + Jamie Vardy (ENG) + Christian Fuchs (AUT)
Jamie Vardy, Christian Fuchs, both International players, as well as Premier League winners season 2015-2016, upload this picture straight from the dressing room showcasing their adoration for the HB Shaper Professional Hair Toffee (Orange). Defender or striker, the Toffee clearly works wonders. Now you know how he styles his barnet when “Jamie Vardy’s having a party”.
England + Everton FC Goalkeeper + Jordan Pickford
The England number ONE couldn’t wait to get in on the trend when he went to his barbers and they were exclusively stocking Hairbond products, at Mr Tillys Barber Shop found in Newcastle. Pickford reportedly “filled his boots” and took a selection of products away to play with. We have wondered if he’s thought about using small amounts on his gloves at times! Pictured HB Texturiser professional hair cream (Blue) and HB Distorter Professional Hair Clay (Green).
England International + Manchester United + Phil Jones
Another England International took to Twitter to promote HB brand when Phil Jones took these pictures of what he was taking to the England national squad.
Belgian International + Club Brugge Goalkeeper + Simon Mignolet
Back in 2014, Mignolet famously signed as Hairbond’s second major brand ambassador following the England cricket captain Jimmy Anderson the year prior. Hairbond ran signed prize competitions and then launched globally as international Liverpool fans and football fans alike demanded to see what all the fuss was about. Here he holds a signed HB Moulder Professional Hair Shaper (Black).
England International + Tottenham Hotspur FC + Harry Winks
We found this selfie researching Hairbond on Twitter. It seems the 23 year old midfielder took to social media to play his part in the HB footballers promo craze. Firmly a fan favourite at Spurs, we wondered how many spurs fans had to buy one after seeing this?
England International + Southampton Midfielder + James Ward-Prowse
Yet another Premier league midfielder shown promoting the HB Shaper Professional Hair Toffee product (Orange). 24 year old James Ward-Prowse plays for Southampton and also has caps for England. Makes you wonder whether Hairbond actually have a hair styling section in the England dressing room.
French International + Everton FC + Morgan Schneiderlin
Here we have Everton’s defensive midfielder Morgan Schneiderlin. Morgan was another premier league player we found promoting the Hairbond brand. Here he is holding a large HB Shaper Professional Hair Toffee (Orange)
Burnley Striker + Jay Rodriguez
Jay Rodriguez, clearly another fan of the toffee one! Shaper Professional Hair Toffee is proving to be a bit of a Hairbond favourite it seems! We noticed Jay more recently sports a longer Zlatan/Andy Caroll esque style but no doubt still uses this strong hair shaper to keep everything in place.
French International + Saint-Étienne right back + Mathieu Debuchy
This is one of the oldest footballers hair photos we could find endorsing the HB brand, he could well be one of the first footballers to get behind this particular styling brand, perhaps Debuchy actually started the trend at his time he spent with Arsenal back in 2014.
Middlesbrough FC Footballers
MFC 2018 squad including Dael Fry, Ben Gibson with Stewart Downing, Adam Clayton, George Friend and Connor Roberts with Patrick Bamford. This squad finished in the top third of the Championship league table that season. We wondered, do they get better results when their hair is on point? HB uploaded this photo to their Instagram account, go give them a follow https://www.instagram.com/hairbond/?hl=en
Blackburn Rovers FC Footballers and Management
Looks like the Hairbond team have been working hard on player promotion. This time at Championship side Blackburn Rovers. Pictured Scottish International Charlie Mulgrew, gaffer Tony Mowbray and Blackburn legend and U23 coach David Dunn. Hairbond’s Instagram story explained how the brand takes time to visit players and coaches and offer them hair styling consultations. When will HB come and visit footballershair.com?! Maybe we just order one of everything for the time being!!
Newcastle United FC Footballers
Here at footballershair.com we are massive NUFC fans and.. well we just LOVE this! Hairbond clearly have taste as well as the quality products which bring a smile to almost everyone’s face here.. so guys, when you’re back in Newcastle be sure to give us a shout at footballershair.com
Salford City + Craig Conway
Before Conway made his recent move to Salford City he played for Championship side Blackburn Rovers and back then in 2017 he featured as a stylish male model in an official HB photo shoot which took place in the historic city of Lancaster, Lancashire; the birthplace of Hairbond.
Preston North End + Paul Gallagher
Paul Gallagher of PNE was the other footballer to take part in HB Sportsman themed photoshoot (see above). As a big fan of the products, Gallagher couldn’t turn the opportunity down to get involved. It’s reported that his favourite product and go to is the Shaper Professional Hair Toffee. Something you will see a lot more of..
Oldham Athletic + David Wheater
Once a Bolton Wander-er and now an Oldham Athletic-er, defender David Wheat-er gives Hairbond’s Distort-er hair clay a big thumbs up-er!
Blackpool FC Footballers
After hearing about the footballers/Hairbond trend Blackpool players took to Twitter to show they hadn’t missed the boat either. We found this on Blackpool’s Twitter account. Clearly had to try that Hair Toffee everyones talking about.
Shamrock Rovers + Blackburn Rovers + Jack Byrne
Shamrock Rovers midfielder Jack Bryne, another player previously at Blackburn Rovers who took to social media to show off his love for the HB Mattifier Professional Hair Cement. Apparently this one smells like cherries or bakewell tarts!
England International + NUFC + Real Madrid + LFC + MUFC + Stoke + Michael Owen
Michael Owen has the ninth-most goals scored (150) in the Premier League. Now retired but happy to join the promotions via Twitter advertising to his 3.8m+ followers.
Leeds United Footballers and Management
Clearly it’s not just for the footballers! LUFC management and coaches are also all over it, looking good both ..on.. and at the side of the pitch. Even though he’s moved to Birmingham FC, Garry Monk’s modern stylish hair style is still a fan favourite topic.
Republic of Ireland + Wolves + Matt Doherty
Right back and number 2, Matt Doherty signed for Wolves back in 2010, the exact same year Hairbond was launched. We found this picture online of him online promoting the 50ml sized HB Shaper Toffee at what appears to be the Wolverhampton training ground. Quick game of table tennis anyone?
Ipswich Town Goalkeeper + Will Norris
Still on the books at Wolves, but currently on loan for Ipswich, Will Norris was also pictured at the Wolves training ground with a HB 50ml toffee shaper, did they have one each or did they just pass the one round for pictures I wonder!?
Wolves + Ryan Bennett
Ryan Bennett is the last wolves player to upload a picture of himself endorsing the HB hair toffee product.
Brentford FC + Goalkeeper + David Raya
Brentford FC goalkeeper David Raya, better late than never.. gets in on the action when HB uploaded this of him in the Brentford changing rooms to their official Instagram account.
England International + Celtic + Southampton FC Goalkeeper + Fraser Forster
Aberdeen FC + SQUAD
Apparently all the lads at Aberdeen FC couldn’t get enough of the toffee Hairbond, so they ordered a full box to share. Great to see them bonding over Hairbond.
Italy International + Serie A club Atalanta Goalkeeper + Pierluigi Gollini
The first Italian player we have seen to endorse the Hairbond brand but word is clearly travelling fast!
Scotland International + Derby County FC + Graeme Shinnie
Not long ago Aberdeen FC captain and now playing at Derby County FC, Graeme Shinnie shows big love for the Hairbond Shaper Toffee.
We are keeping a close eye on all Hairbond footballer news, we have found even more ballers to add to the list so will be updating this article accordingly.. watch this space..
