Clint Capela Hair continues to be an area of interest due to the dyed blonde patch on the left side of his hair.

Whilst we have many athletes with a variety of hairstyles clint’s simple patch stands him out from his peers and opposition.

Our editorial highlights his signature hairstyle which includes his dyed hair, hair type and how you can achieve a similar look



Clint Capela Hair Type

Clint’s hair type falls under category 4, which is the tightest of all hair types. Due to its natural tight curl pattern it easily forms knots and snarls which leads to easy breakage.

Those with type 4 hair usually experience dryness, breakage and shrinkage. Hair has to be well maintained and moisturized. This would explain why we see clint place his hair in protective styles like cornrows to avoid breakage and shrinkage etc.

Signature Blonde Dye

When you think about Clint Capela Hair the first thing that comes to mind will ultimately be his current blonde patch.

We have seen his hair styled in multiple variations such as twists, afro hair and comb coils, yet what remains to be the same and consistent is the blonde dye.

In addition to this we have seen him add patterns to the sides of his head further making his styles stand out!

Disclaimer: Applying any sort of chemical to your hair is a very risky job as this can lead to breakage or thinning if not done correctly, therefore we always recommend you use a professional.



Small Afro

At the time of his 2014 draft we saw Clint sporting a relatively low afro hairstyle which he wore for most of the year.

In the years to follow he kept his hair long on top with different variations and styles, for example we can see him alternating between a high top and a mohawk.

To avoid problems such as breakage, dandruff and itchiness Clint continues to upkeep a maintenance routine in order to ensure the best health for his hair.




Its been over 20 years since the 2001 NBA all star game and the Allen Iverson Braids moment is still influential within the sport today.


With Iverson being the first player to wear the braids on the court we have seen a variety of players such as clint himself place his hair in protective styles due to A. I’s influence.

Whilst this may be partly due to being a popular hairstyle for black athletes it also offers practical benefits such as their being less breakage due to minimal manipulation, leading to growth and health.

We can see the athlete tends to place his hair in cornrows, twists and other styles.



Sponge Twists

Having type 4 hair allows for styles such as twists since hair is already tightly coiled.

Twists are further accentuated with the use of a hair sponge that can be purchased online or at any black hair store.

The one consistent theme with his hairstyle is the blonde patch, this remains in the same position whether that be on his twists, braids or afro hair.

Want the same look, we got you!

  1. Slightly dampen hair with spritz
  2. You may also apply some of your styling product to the sponge.
  3. Use sponge and go in a circular motion across your head and style to your liking. You have the option to style hair lightly or heavily, depending on your preference.
