Leo Bancroft stunned the footballing world yesterday as he gave the most famous footballer on the planet Fernando Torres a New Look for 2013.
Leo had originally took Torres back to blonde when he first arrived at Chelsea Football Club, but last week when Leo was visiting the players at the Wyndham Hotel in Chelsea Harbour, Leo and the £50m striker made the decision to go for a more “Statement Making Power Cut.
That evening, John Terry, Juan Mata and many other Chelsea players looked at Leo in shock as he proceeded to cut away the golden locks of the spanish front man in front of their very eyes. Fernando had originally asked Leo to be shaved bald like his young days at Athletico Madrid and although Leo liked the idea of going very short his passion for tailoring and designing mens hair came through as he used his influences from Mens Fashion Week to create a very current short crop design to suit the player.
Leo says ” Hair can be a powerful tool to help you express yourself, it defines you in that moment of time, even extremely short hair can produce design and style and I am delighted to help Fernando in this way”
Leo and Fernando teased the Chelsea fans online as they sat in the strikers room at the hotel tweeting what they intended to do, as they knew many of them would be shocked with the news of the new look.
Leo has been cutting many of the first team players hair at the club for over 8 years now allowing him to meet and style football’s most famous and valuable players during this time, Leo has also made visits to the Russian Owners Home in London Belgravia, effectively making his clientele worth Millions!!
After meeting the hair demands of many of the players Leo launched his very own Mens Range in Tesco Stores in November 2012 and has also been finalised as Mens Hairdresser Of the Year for 2013, making him one of the most sought after stylists in the country.
One for the guys…
So I hear there is a film out this weekend, Twilight – Breaking Dawn? I’m kidding, I haven’t heard about anything else for about three months. But seriously, as well as hitting media headlines on a daily basis Twilight has created a serious trend that has affected the fashion, beauty and hair industry massively. The dark gothic, black lips and lace trend that is all over the high street just now is a direct product from the Twilight trilogy.
But it’s not just one for the ladies – men’s’ trends have also experienced a major impact. Just looking at the images from the red carpet from the Breaking Dawn premiere; it’s clear that grooming is a major part of the appeal. The Twilight boys are all working a similar look – short sides, height and movement on top with light stubble. But don’t be fooled, this isn’t lazy stubble – this is impeccably trimmed.
Finish this look with a dapper, well cut suit and a hint of tan – but remember this is more vampire than Jersey Shore.
