About a decade ago, I thought long hair on a guy was hot. And it still is on occasion, but not on most men that sport it.

Lionel Messi and Gonzalo Higuaín cut their hair a while ago, and Carlos Tevez and national goalie Sergio Romero have finally jumped on board, leaving their starting lineup clean-cut for the first time in recent decades (I think). Argentina as a country was once recognized for its long locks, but now it is more clean-cut than its Spanish rivals/teammates. Spaniard Sergio Ramos of course finally gave his famous long hair a trendy trim over the summer, but Catalan Carles Puyol is still a hold-out.

Perhaps Argentina has lost its identity, but in the meantime it has gained the respect of this writer.
