Hands up everyone who ever played a game where you could change your hairstyle?
Don’t like it? No worries! Just change it into another haircut instantly. Oh, if this would only be possible in real life, right?
Tired of long hair? Try out a new crew cut, but if you don’t like it you can instantly restore your long hair. The dream! Well due to biologically reasons this is obviously not possible… but is it?
Meet Lyle Avett
Guys, let me tell you a story about Lyle Avett, an avid gamer and Twitch streamer who, with a conventional Caeser haircut, decided he wanted a new style.
So he went to his local barbershop, scrolled through the books of different hairstyles the barber had in his waiting room, and requested one of the following styles: the Blonde Afro, the Shaggy Dog, or Long Hair no. 3.
Now the problem is this: Avett had short hair (as mentioned above) so the barber politely told him that he wouldn’t be able to give him one of these haircuts.
This is when Avett lost his plot.
He called the hairstylist names and questioned the capability of her skills. After arguing for a while, the hairstylist convinced him to get a buzz cut.
Ultimately, he disliked it that much that he asked for his old haircut to be restored. Oh lordy!
So maybe we shouldn’t worry too much about video games turning our kids into maniacs but more so about the fact that they think a haircut is only a button press away and you can change it into everything you want.
Anyway, I hope you didn’t mind this little bit of an ice breaker for this article.
So now, on to our business! Let’s have a look at this list of pro gamers that actually understood the hairdressing game and discover their hairstyles!
1. Tfue – Pro Gamer & Self-Made Man
Chances are high you know about Tfue even if you’re not that much into gaming. He is arguably one of the most famous streamers out there and is, therefore, a self-made millionaire.
You can also see that despite being a full-time gamer, he still rocks a pretty good haircut that doesn’t really fit into the greasy, sweaty gamer cliche.
Cizzorz is another Twitch streamer who rose to mainstream fame thanks to the popular game Fortnite. He sports a bit of a longer and heavier haircut. Fashionable and stylish as well as easy to maintain, it is the perfect stretch between gaming all night and still being able to go outside and look great!
3. Nickmercs Bad Boy Pro Gamer
Nickmercs sports a great looking buzz cut that makes him look a bit of a bad boy. He also plays aggressively so that kinda fits his gaming style as well!
4. Aydan Fortnite Pro Gamer
Aydan is one of the few controller pro-Fortnite gamers, and he also rose to fame because of that. He rocks a decent haircut that could also be worn by any none-gamer person as well. Whoever said that gamers all look like they never see the sunlight?
Be real here, you know who this guy is. He is a multi-millionaire, loved by millions of people, the face of a whole generation, his mercy gets sold in Walmart, and he regularly plays with Star DJ Marshmello.
His name is Tyler Bevins and he is a self-made millionaire gamer. His haircut is a bit out of the norm, but it inspired so many young children to also rock colored hair that it is almost mainstream again!
Shroud won over 226 thousand dollars in prize money for his gaming efforts, but his actual net worth I way higher due to his partnerships and Twitch donations, as well as YouTube ad revenue. He likes to keep his hairstyle simply with a French top with faded sides. Stylish yet simple!
Sodapoppin is mostly known for his World of Warcraft streams that attract thousands of viewers per stream. As for his haircut, he likes to keep it simple by rocking an easy to do mop cut.
8. SypherPK Twitch Pro Streamer
Another famous Twitch streamer, SypherPK sports a pompadour with faded sides.
Have you heard of DrDisrespect? Chances are high that you heard of his controversy where he filmed in a public bathroom. If not, don’t worry! Just have a look at his haircut instead. Who would have thought that he is a full-time gamer and streamer?
DrLupo is a gamer and a dad, his haircut is more dad than gamer. Like don’t you agree? We still like it, as he’s keeping it simple and classy.
11. Nate Hill – Pro Gamer & Model
Nate Hill is not only a gamer but also a model (as you might already be able to tell from this picture).
12. Tilt of the FaZe Clan
FaZe clan is an eSports team like Real Madrid is a soccer club and Tilt is one of their athletes. Just like other players, he sports this great haircut seen below.
13. Nick Eh 30
Nick is most famous for his Fortnite streams on Youtube. And no surprise there: he has some serious skill in the game. He likes to keep his hair simple and has been rocking a buzz cut for at least two years now.
14. High Distortion
Jimmy (who is better known as High Distortion) is the first player that achieved 100.000 kills in the popular game Fortnite. His shaved head compliments his face perfectly for a 10 out of 10 style points.
15. Avxry of the FaZe Clan
Another FaZe Clan athlete that stands out thanks to his blond dyed top hair while the sides are left in his natural brown.
16. Preston (TBNRFrags)
Preston might not be that much of a pro gamer, but he won the hearts of his millions of fans with his entertaining gameplay videos. His haircut brought him many female fans as well, or so I think.
17. Liquid Poach
Poach is another professional gamer who is currently on the top ranks in Fortnite. If you would see him on the street, you would probably not think of him as a 24/7 gamer. He’s so cool!
18. Tom or 72hrs
Another Fortnite professional, Tom aka 72hrs is here seen sporting a beard and a French top. Stylish!
19. Crayator Pro Gamer & Entertainer
Cray is a self-proclaimed Australian ladies men and very much an entertainer and gamer. We can definitely see why the ladies would like him with that impressive mustache combined with his stylish haircut!
KingRichard is currently one of the best Apex Legends players. But he could also be easily mistaken for a soccer player since they often like to sport blond colored top hair too.
21. Marcel Lutz
Marcel Lutz is one of the best Fifa Players out there (seeing as we were talking soccer just above). As with KingRichard, he too could be mistaken for an actual soccer player with his stubble beard and crew neck cut.
22. TSM_Bjergsen LOL Pro Gamer
With the gaming scene getting more and more attention in the mainstream media world, I think it is safe to say that it is about time to waive the idea of “in basement sitting, never sunlight seeing gamers” away.
Nowadays, it is more a dream profession to become a professional gamer. Still, you will need not only gaming skills but also to be active on social media channels as well as at media events.
Therefore, pro gamers need to put more thought into their haircuts and styling. And with these great results, why not channel your inner gamer too!
What’s your favorite among these hairstyles and which would you sport yourself?
