Olivier Giroud hairstyles, haircuts and hair - Style guide with pictures
Let's specifically discuss Olivier Giroud's hairstyles, haircuts and hair in this thread. Feel free to post more pictures of his hair in this thread.
Olivier Giroud is a french football player currently playing at Arsenal. Giroud has dark blond straight hair which he usually keeps in a short length & styled with volume.

As said, short length hairstyles with volume are his favourite mens styles. However, Olivier also had long hair at the start of his football career but he soon cut his hair & never great it long again.

Brush up
The Brush Up hairstyle is a trendy mens hairstyle that many footballers & popular male celebrities have jumped on. In the brush up, the hair is styled up with the fingers & with some help from a hair dryer to acquire big volume. The sides & back of the head in the brush up style can be done with a taper cut or an undercut.
The brush up is a favourite hairstyle of Olivier Giroud.

Side part
The hair is casually parted & allowed volume with a hair dryer by pointing the hair dryer while parting the hair. The hair is done in a taper, usually a discreet long taper although a clipper taper can also be done.
In the pictures below of Olivier Giroud's side part hairstyle, his combing starts at the temple & goes sideway at an angle for a modern look. Also, in the last picture of the side part, the hair is parted with pomade & this water soluble pomade is great for such a classic side part look.

Undercut with side part
The undercut with side part is similar to the brush up style above in that the hair has a lot of volume but, with the former, the hair is just parted to the side with fingers rather than styled up & vertical like in the brush up. However, just like in the brush up, the undercut with side part uses a hair dryer to get the extra hair volume - just point the dryer to your hair as you use your fingers to part/comb the hair to the side.

Quiff
In the quiff, the forelock - hair on the front of the head - is lifted up while the rest of the hair lies much flatter. Usually in the quiff style, the forelock is longer too as in the case of the Ivy League haircut.

Faux Hawk
Olivier Giroud also has a thing for messy faux hawk hairstyles. The crest is mildly defined but the hair is given direction towards the center of the head to create a natural faux hawk crest.

Long hair
Olivier Giroud had long hair at the start of his football career with french team Grenoble. He grew his hair long all the way to the shoulders and then got it cut.

Get the look
To achieve any of Olivier Giroud hairstyles, you will need styling products that work well with short hair since most of his hairstyles over his football career have been short - except for the long hair he sported a long time ago & which didn't last long anyway.
With regards to mens hair products, you will want to own a good hair wax, pomade, hair gel & a high quality hair dryer. Also, it would be a good idea to own a hair clipper as you will be able to give yourself an undercut and many other haircuts in minutes at home.

These are the products we recommend (click each link):

- This hair wax: this hair wax in the link is excellent 'for casual looking' styles - like the brush up and casual side part - and is also excellent for messy styles like the faux hawk. The finish of this wax is matte and gives you plenty of hair control for shaping.

- This pomade: if you like more classic styles like more formal side parts or even slicked styles, then get the pomade in the link. It has a great hold & a wet look effect so it is great for a more formal look with great control of the hair. On the other hand, if you prefer a side part with some shine, then go back to the side part hairstyle pictures & get the other pomade I recommended in the hairstyle's section.

- This hair gel: this hair gel in the link is a great mens hair gel & is also versatile and you can use it for any of the listed hairstyles of Olivier Giroud. I recommend you to also own this hair gel si you have more texturing options in your daily hairstyling needs.

- This hair dryer: a hair dryer is always an excellent styling tool for men. However for the volume hairstyles of Olivier Giroud, owning a good hair dryer is more of a need than an option as a good hair dryer will allow you to achieve as much volume on your hair as you want 0 perfect for the brush up and side part variations.
The hair dryer in the link above is a premium hair dryer that will enhance your hairstyle by not only drying your hair faster but also giving your hair a more polished look & fighting any frizz so that your hair is perfectly shaped and defined. The hair dryer is pricey but it is 100% worth its price - its product lifetime is also much longer than cheap or regular hair dryers Smile

- This hair clipper: just like with a hair dryer, a hair clipper is also an excellent styling tool for guys. With a hair clipper you can buzz & clip your hair as often as you want & in whatever shapes you want, including an undercut - giving yourself an undercut with a clipper is really easy.
The recommended hair clipper in the link above is a cordless clipper with a super powerful motor designed to buzz thru the thickest hair a man could have Big Grin this clipper lasts over 1 hour without a rest & the clipper is designed for heavy duty use and for lasting you years. The clipper in the link also comes with everything you need for the perfect haircut and for giving yourself haircuts - also has 'how to' instructions so you can start using the clipper on your hair asap!
Because this clipper will last you years, you will also save a lot of money from not going as frequently to the barbershop for maintenance haircuts - this benefit alone is worth paying for & owning a hair clipper like the one recommended above Smile

- The Men's Hair Book: this book is essential reading for every guy who wants to have perfect hair. You will learn about hairstyles, grooming & hair care + the book is like an encyclopedia that you can consult in the future. Lots of advice and tips to learn and the author of the book is famous mens hair expert Rogelio who has helped lots of men over the years get perfect hair. The Men's Hair Book is a favourite among members in this forum & if you don't own it yet then click the link above to read more about the book & buy it.

RE: Olivier Giroud hairstyles, haircuts and hair - Style guide with pictures
Another great profiling of a soccer player from you, Jurgen. Didn't know who this guy were but upon seeing his styles and cuts, I can see why opening a profile guide would be of use.

I dig his Undercut and how he plays with the volume of his mane. It's impressive what the right kind of hair dryer will do! Big Grin The side parting with volume is very simple to shape as you have described and one can even give himself an Undercut with a hair clipper as you have also posted. For those of you with straight hair or wavy hair, the big-volume side part with a taper or Undercut as well as the Brush Up are some solid and modern mens hairstyles!
