Athleticism aside we can all agree the Dustin Poirier Haircut is one of the best branded hairstyles amongst any athlete within the UFC. His style has ranged from,
- Comb Over
- Side Quiff
- Buzzed Down
Ever known an athlete to ask his team mid fight how’s his hair looking? That’s a laughable thought right? Unless your Dustin Poirier who has made it very apparent hair is a priority!
Our editorial highlights his signature hairstyles he’s sported throughout his UFC career as well as the styles he alternates between.
Here are the Best Dustin Poirier Haircut Moments
Whilst we see Dustin alternate between various hairstyles its his comb over haircut which takes precedence in comparison to the rest.
The subtle details with the haircut is what creates its distinctive look and this can be seen by his faded side, side comb and the complimentary comb over.
The combination between the faded sides and side part is ultimately what draws more attention to his comb over.
The beauty of the look is the ability to have it combed to the left or right and be worn on short or medium length hair.
His combover is mainly featured on short lengths.
The transition between his combover and side quiff is seamless as its simply a result of his hair growing out.
In the above image his side parting is no longer visible due to hair growth whilst its also longer on the top.
If we compare the 1st 2 images his combover has more of a wet finish which would indicate to us he uses a gel whilst his side quiff is more textured having a matt finish.
Minor differences in hairstyles, however the one consistent here? You guessed it, its his drop faded sides which he regularly gets done by his personal barber.
Whilst there are many variations of the quiff we see him either in the modern quiff or side quiff. In this example it’s the modern quiff.
What makes it a modern quiff? The emphasis of the messier top at front and faded sides. The compliment with this look is both the fade and the stubble.
We like to call this style the organised mess and its clear to see why, its appropriate for his days in the ring, errands, casual days or more formal settings.
Dustin wont let it grow out too long but if you want you have the option to completely change the look and morph into a undercut, pompadour or even a mohawk if you want to get creative! The quiff is the foundation for them all.
Prior to his pretty boy looks which went along with his flamboyant character it was straight to business with his buzz cut.
When your in a physical contact sport such as the UFC then the last thing you’re going to want is hair being an obstacle to your vision.
Outside of the practical benefits its also a favourite amongst men who seemly prefer to have a more masculine look and demeanour.
Hair removed or shorten only means our focus pivoting towards his jaw line, ears and other facial features.
In our extended gallery we have search the internet high and low for different images of Dustin’s various hairstyles he’s worn both throughout the years.
