Baggio’s ponytail/mullet combo is one of the most iconic hairstyles on this list. This monstrosity was not a short-term accident, but just one in a series of stand out styles from throughout his storied career.

Some say, his 1994 World Cup Final penalty miss was all down to his hair. A strong crosswind swung his mullet across his face and into his eye, causing him temporary loss of vision and resulted in him skying the ball far over the crossbar. Ever since, players have stayed away from this style in fear of similar repercussions.

Those twirls are as synonymous with Ronaldinho as carnival is to his native Brazil. Apart from his teeth, this is the easiest way to identify the cult figure.
