Sergio Ramos is one of the best defenders of his generation. Starting his La Liga career with his local club Sevilla in 2003, he made the then-record transfer for a Spanish defender for 27 million euros to Real Madrid in 2005.
Since then, Sergio Ramos has never looked back; he has won one World Cup, two European Championships with Spain, four Champions League titles, five La Liga titles, and various other trophies with Real Madrid. He is considered to be one of the greatest of all time in defense.
Aside from his football abilities and personality, Ramos is also well-known for his signature hairstyles that never fail to catch the eye of every football fan, even if they don’t necessarily impress.
Here is a look at his iconic haircuts throughout his career –
Hairstyles from 2003 till 2017
Sergio Ramos started his career for Sevilla and made his La Liga debut in 2004. The following season he played 41 games for Los Nervionenses. Throughout this period, Ramos sported long hair cascading down to his shoulders.
Ramos experimented with a variety of long hairstyles, occasionally donning a headband, while at other times leaving his hair flowing freely.
Additionally, he also flaunted cornrows in both full and half styles after he won the world cup.
Ramos sported the long hairstyle until Euro 2012 when he opted for a shorter cut. During Euro 2012, Ramos opted for a youthful and casual hairstyle, often leaving his hair unkempt.
Following the Euros, Ramos briefly sported blonde hair but eventually returned to his original hair color.
In the 2014/2015 campaign Real went on to win the Champions League with the famous header from Ramos that took the match to extra time where Real Madrid demolished Atletico Madrid 4-1.
During this match, Ramos did not put on some of his innovative hairstyles but went with his classic side part undercut.

In 2016/17 Ramos started the campaign with his famous Caesar cut hairstyle which he later changed.
He once again changed his hairstyle just before the 2016/17 Champions League Final against Juventus, from a side sleek to an undercut.
His new hairstyle seems to have also enhanced his acting skills when he got Cuadrado sent off for shoving him in the head for which he rolled over like a bag of cement and got Cuadrado his second yellow. This would crush all the hopes for a comeback by the Bianconeri and Real Madrid retained the Champions League after beating Juventus 4-1.
From 2018 to 2022
The 2018/19 season was the first season after Ronaldo left and with the changing management Real Madrid suffered, the only player to lead the group was Ramos who was given additional penalty responsibilities. In this season Ramos styled an Undercut.
In the next season, Ramos returned to his headband style but this time around he was not sporting his shoulder-length hair.
In the mid-season, he changed his hairstyle to a bun when he grew his hair with a full beard. He kept the same haircut for a long time period. During this period Ramos moved to Paris Saint Germain in 2021.

But now in 2023, he is once again back to his 2015 hair cut which is a casual undercut look, and a beard to compliment it.
At 36 years old, Ramos is a regular for Paris Saint Germain, having played in 36 matches for the club this season. Although their journey in the Champions League may have ended, they remain competitive in the Ligue 1 with a comfortable 10-point lead over second-ranked Marseille.
