I know that haircut. I’ve seen it all over Instagram and Facebook, but now you have to make sure your hair is long enough for a Joao Felix haircut, or else you might as well go with something a little more conservative.
The famous hairstyle of Portuguese football player Ronaldo “João” Luís Nazário de Lima has taken off recently in Portugal’s capital city Lisbon, as well as other cities across Europe where there are large populations of Brazilian immigrants, from Rio Grande do Sul state to Milan, Paris, London and Manchester in the UK.
The Joao Felix haircut is the latest trend to sweep through Brazil. It transforms a natural hair type which is thick, curly, unruly and turns these manes into sleek waves with just a simple snip on the temples and round the ears that give off an elegant yet edgy style.
In order for it to work properly though, you have to invest in the right kinds of products beforehand or go back regularly for touch-ups as your hair starts growing out again, because frizzy curls will start popping up all over the place if not professionally dealt with on a regular basis.
Styling the Joao Felix haircut
The wonder of the century. We deliver to you the Hairbond Wonder Primer.
It’s not just made for people with frizzy and coarse hair. The Hairbond Wonder Mask and Primer are both designed to be be used on all other types of locks, putting you back in control of your unruly hair.
This product has seven benefits and is perfect to get your hair in the right condition – especially for the Joao Felix haircut.
To style, pump a few squirts of the Wonder primer into your hands, make sure your full palms are covered and begin to apply to damp or towel dry hair. The idea is that every hair gets some exposure to the formula so make sure you work it in every direction.
Once covered, use a hair dryer and a wide tooth comb or brush to shape and straighten out any natural curl. The finished result should be dry, wavy and ready for a zero shine, matte product. We recommend applying small amounts of the Hairbond Moulder to the roots to finish.
This is a longer length haircut and most barbers will just use scissors to shape, unless they choose to use their clippers around the back and sides with a longer guard in order to neaten any edges.
This handy bottle will have you looking like a million bucks from morning until night!
