Odell Beckham Jr., wide receiver for the New York Giants, is almost as famous for his hairstyles as his athletic ability. His signature mohawk fade haircut has evolved in length and color over time.
One thing that stays the same is faded sides and medium length curls. Men’s hairstyles are getting longer in 2017 and Beckham has been ahead of that trend.
Check out the most famous versions of the Odell Beckham haircut.
