Since his 2013 NFL debut playing for the Kansas City Chiefs we have seen Travis Kelce haircut alternate between simple style such as the buzz cut and crew cut with the occasional grown out hairstyle.

During games players can be seen wearing helmets which creates limitation to viewing the players face and hair throughout the game, this limitation naturally drives more interest around the athletes hairdos.

This is the most consistent style we see him do whilst also being a haircut which compliments his look.

The sophisticated look is minimal, low maintenance and can be worn for all occasions whilst also drawing a large focus to his jawline, it’s a win win and a style we will continue to see on the player.


Buzz Cut

The buzz cut has aesthetic and practical benefits which stands to reason why we see George make them one of his signature looks.

For most players its less time consuming which allow them to get up, get ready and focus on the game! All that’s required is a brush and your all set!


If there’s one good thing to come from the 2020 pandemic it would be men growing out their hair and beards and Travis’s quiff was a perfect example of this.

As the quiff has many variations we can see Travis selecting a style best suited for his face as well as keeping his beard long with a fade.

Wanting a similar look will require you to ask your barber for a faded quiff, also ensure you invest in matte paste to create the desired volume with a blow dryer and a comb.

What’s the difference between the buzz and crew cut?

Were well aware that most people believe the 2 haircuts are the same and we don’t blame them, however they are slight variations between the 2.

A buzz cut is a very short haircut, typically with clippers, that results in a uniform length all over the head. Its often time brought down to the scalp

A crew cut is also a short haircut however the main difference is its longer on top and short on sides.

Key Take Away: Have a Signature Look

Whilst Travis Kelce has kept his hair fairly simple throughout the years the consistency of the buzz cut has ultimately made this his signature look and you should have a look too!

 Here’s what you need to do

  • A/B test your Haircuts
    Find 2 to 3 haircuts you like and take pictures in them all to see which one is best suited to you
  • Grow out your Hair
