French Striker Olivier Giroud voted the Most Stylish Footballer at this year’s FIFA World Cup

French striker Olivier Giroud has scored a stunning hat-trick of style awards in a World Cup survey carried out by premium male grooming brand The Bluebeards Revenge.

As well as being named ‘Most Stylish’ footballer playing at the FIFA finals in Russia this summer, Olivier also scoops the title for ‘Best Haircut’ and ‘Best Beard’.

Olivier Giroud, who moved across London to Chelsea’s Stamford Bridge from Arsenal’s The Emirates back in January, took 30% of the vote in the most stylish footballer category. Portuguese hotshot Cristiano Ronaldo took second place, closely followed by Spain’s Sergio Ramos. Giroud’s performance in the best haircut category was even more impressive as he secured a whopping 40% of the public vote. Belgium’s unmissable Marouane Fellaini took second place on 14%, with Ronaldo (11%) coming in third.

Olivier Giroud is becoming renowned all over the globe for his super trendy haircuts, chiselled good looks and his all-round style,” comments Nick Gibbens, spokesperson for The Bluebeards Revenge. “If the World Cup was played out on the Moscow catwalk then France would surely be bringing the prestigious trophy back to Paris!” Award winning barber and educator, Tom Chapman, agrees, while  attributing style icons like Olivier as a pivotal factor in increasing number of British men are visiting the barbershop: “One of the most popular hair style requests I get from my clients is ‘the Giroud’ as well as whatever David Beckham is sporting at the time. It’s great to see footballers setting the trend for the latest cuts and the 2018 World Cup could be the most on trend yet even with the Italians missing out on a spot at the finals.”

The email survey of 2,076 men living in Britain was carried out by The Bluebeards Revenge between May 28 and June 2.
