This from Madrid-based brother-barber combo José and Miguel Siero Leal, explaining to MARCA the daring new cut debuted by Cristiano Ronaldo against Barcelona over the weekend:
“Ronaldo told us, as he had on many other occasions, that he was looking for something different. He isn’t at all fussy. There’s a personality behind every haircut. And he needs a strong image. It suits him.
“He’s very ambitious and a perfectionist. We hit on what he was feeling at that time and it was reflected during the match.
“We know him well and we had the idea of shaving a symbol that represents both peace and the calm a warrior experiences after battle. He agreed.”
The keen-eyed amongst you may have spotted that Ronaldo’s ‘symbol of the peace and calm a warrior experiences after battle’ is actually just a wavy line shaved into his hair above the left ear.
Bet he paid through the nose for that short-back-and-sides-deluxe as well.
“Si, we very much saw you coming Señor”
