Since his 2010 MLB debut playing for the Baltimore Orioles we have seen multiple Manny Machado Hair styles ranging from his,
- Buzz Cut
- Afro Fade
- Comb Over
- Swept Back
- Braided Manbun
- Box Braids
One of the most versatile hairstyles when it comes to players in Major league baseball which inadvertently separates him from the other athletes.
Our gallery discusses his current signature hairstyle, his hair type as well as a gallery of his previous styles.
All Manny Machado Hair Styles
The traditional buzz cut says conservative, the modern buzz cut says cool and edgy and the addition of the fade is what create that edgy look!
The most important element of any buzz cut is the fade as its job is to complement the buzz cut and that can be seen on all Manny’s short cuts.
San Diego professional barber Ramon Vazquez who is also responsible for Fernando Tatís Jr Hair cut features in the video detailing his work on Manny and others.
Barbers have become an essential part of the way we live, especially those athletes whose appearance is out for the world to see daily!
The contrast between the temple fade against afro hair creates a more distinctive look, even if its the small temple fade as the one below.
Any fade regardless of size is enough to create a contrast between the sides and hair on top. In addition to this we also see the back faded gradually.
It’s the slightest details which make all the difference, faded sides mean the level at top are further highlighted even from a distance.
There are a number of variations, styles applicable to this style which will become more apparent with the other hairstyles in the editorial.
The contemporary combover simply involves taking this classic hairstyle and add additional features such as his signature fade shaven in part.
Seen the comb over requires you direct hair either to the left or right a natural side part is created as a result, what makes is modern is when its shaved in.
This hair cut incorporates a high and tight fade which is disconnected from the top which makes hair seem longer.
The hard part is best for formal environment which requires a outfit congruent to the look and this would be it! Gel can be used for a wet finish.
A simple shift in the direction of his hair from the sides to the back creates the swept over look we see in the example image below.
The subtle change in direction being swept back creates a whole new paradigm, one which communicates class and status. Its also one of the oldest hairstyles for men.
With hair out of the way all attention is place on Manny’s face and to keep it that way he will use a product such as wax for a light hold and healthy shine.
Swept back hair can be applied to all hair lengths but we recommend it be done on medium and longer hair.
From his medium length swept over hair were able to see Manny’s braided manbun which features both traditional cornrows and more intricate and intriguing designs.
Aside of their aesthetic appeal the braided manbun is just as much practical since they help prevent pulling and tugging from daily manipulation.
Keeping the foundations the same with his shaved sides it allows us to focus on his hair on top that he has done on average once a month.
Manny Machado hair is also placed in knotless box braids as another protective style. Hair is braided away from his scalp and thin in volume.
This hairstyle will last up him to 6 weeks which will then be removed, washed, conditioner and then left to rest until he’s ready for another protective style.
