Dreams Do Come True: Fernando Torres Gets A Haircut

Image via

Those who have been reading this site for some time will be aware how big the news of Fernando Torres getting a haircut truly is. Election results? England squad selects and injuries? It’s all Eyjafjallajökull in comparison.

Yes, we’re serious. Please leave now if you don’t understand the seriousness. But do take and enjoy a free Jaffa cake on the way out.

We’ve often waxed lyrical about our desire to see Fern go back to his youthful days at Atletico, when being friends with a shaver set to level 3 was just fine. And oh, how we’ve craved the knowledge of what Nando’s natural hair colour would be: the colour of freshly minted gold? A bountiful harvest of shimmering wheat? The rich tones of a bowl of Honey Nut Cheerios?

You guessed right, dear readers: it’s all of those things.

See more photos at ONTD Football. Thanks Jasmine for the tip! And don’t forget to follow us on twitter and join our Facebook page! We can’t stop exclaiming things! We’re just so excited about Nando’s hair!

    I guess I'm curious as to what antics he's getting up to that could spin the story. I know he's always around for these antics (i.e. the Vegas trips, the use of his home as a brothel of sorts for JT, the boozy nights out..

  2. I am not gonna lie to you. After few minutes of searching (while having this almost heart attack) I am convinced that it's a mistake, the comment is surely about Iniesta!

  3. I would wish every thanks giving day is celebrated that way never fail!! I just loved the pictures and can make out how cool it would have been!

    Omygosh! He's so damn hot with this hair! He is back to his natural hair, and I sooo love it!! To be honest, he's hot always, doesn't matter what! Sexy/cute/nice… I LOVE NANDO! <3

    He doesn't seem a 26 family man *siiiigh*

  8. Sarah says:

    Omg Nando looks pure beautiful with this hair<3 Back to his Atletico hairstyle days & he looks so much younger, 26? I don't think so. Amazing Spaniard :D

  9. aps says:

    I don't like this new hair. Sooo not him.

  10. Come on baby, shave it, shave it…

    Oh, natural hair colour is no golden at all, if you watch the post-shave hair you can see that its chocolate brown. Mmm.

    Gooood boy.

  11. hoda says:

    i love the haircut and coulor and nando in any appearance!

  12. rubyqueen says:

  13. striker9 says:

    love the colour not the cut. too short. he looks like 12… same colour but longer would be abesome… let’s see how long he stays that natural….

    • sounderslove says:

      well, hair does tend to grow back :P i'm sure it'll be long again in no time. let's just hope he actually takes care of it this time.

  14. Michaella says:

    HUUUUGE improvement. Looknig good nando.

    "Please leave now if you don’t understand the seriousness. But do take and enjoy a free Jaffa cake on the way out."

    Lol i totally understand the seriousness of this situ, can i have a jaffa cake anyways.???

  15. KatiGaray says:

    he’d be perfect if it weren’t for the freckles, who is the signor next to him i know him from somewhere, is he an actor

  16. Mrs.Roni says:

    wawww *___* :D super hairrr super he's awesome :D

  17. Caroline says:

    What an improvement!! Seriously I thought he was gonna have that long blonde hair forever, this is a bit mullety still at the back but the rest is spot on, I just hope he stays away from hairdye, he is so working the natural colour!!

  18. hp says:

    OMG its the 2006 modified look :) He looks younger now.

  19. Zlatanista says:

    Fernando is cute whatever he does. It´s the freckles.

  20. Tach says:

    I’m a ‘nando fan again :D it’s hotttt!

  21. Zo.acm says:

    i didn’t mind the long hair at all… but i’m in the minority. i just hope it works at the WC. He had the exact haircut at the 2006 world cup and it didn’t do Spain much good, but then he grew it and dyed it blonde and voila… they won the Euro. I’m just saying… fingers crossed and hope they do brilliantly.

    • Zo.acm says:

      He looks amazing as always though… so I'm not complaining. And I do love the natural hair colour. :)

    • sounderslove says:

      actually, he cut it short(ish) for the euro final, if i remember correctly. and that certainly seemed to work well for him :P

  22. sisterIT_LFC says:

    aaahhhhhhhhh my boy… looks absolutely adorable again..
    well he always does…
    but ummm.. mmmm.. yum yum yummeee

  23. Jasmine says:

    HOT. I always loved Fernando's old hair but this makes him look sooooo young.

  24. livealittle says:

    oh thank you Sweet Baby Jesus! oh God it’s like his WC ’06 do…when i first fell in lust with him. i’m so happy. now let’s all just hope he keeps it this way. or at least some variation of it.

  25. sounderslove says:

    about time! Though I have to say, just a touch of blond wouldn't hurt…but wow I'd almost forgotten what he looked like with short hair. Let's hope it brings him good luck in the WC!

  26. seatyler says:

    Is the other dude Fernando Hierro? Kinda looks like him but I haven’t seen him since he left Real Madrid ages ago.

  27. key says:

    O..M..G! I JUST…CANT BELIEVE IT! NANDO back in the days of atletico maan he looks soooooooooooo handsome!!! i love him i love him cant wait to see him!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

  28. elnino says:

    Oh how joyous!! Nando has his old hair back! I'm so happy reason has finally come to him. This is like the cherry on today's cake since my team won and now his haircut!! Ohhhhhhhhh Nando you make me daydream everyday!

  29. suzie says:

    It’s his way of saying thank you for him FINALLY getting a place on the F5……but it sure does make him look even younger.

  30. p4ng says:

    My god, he heard me!

    Love you, nando :-*

  31. TristaJade says:

    Yes, there is a God…. :)

  32. Venice says:

    Good lord, I've given up waiting on this day! Thank you for seeing the light Nando! Yes, this is much much better!

  33. Alisha says:

    No Nando…not the hair!! Anything but the hair :(

  34. Erin says:

    World cup means fauxhawk time for the Nando!

  35. HJ says:

    anyone else wondering whether Olalla had something to do with this? hmm…but he looks like a teenager here!not like a 26-year-old father!i love u nando! and i’ll say this on every nando post: just when i thought i was over him!aaah!

  36. MrsNesta says:

    I think Nando must have been checking on the comments made here, especially during the F5 voting as I think most agreed the hair was an issue lol :)

  37. tammyv says:

    Wow.. Nando is channeling his inner Stu Holden there

  38. Merel says:

    About time.

  39. Deffo-Nando says:

    When I saw this is was like "YESSSSSSSSSSS!!! HE CUT HIS HAIR!!! YESSSSSS!!!" He looks so much younger.

  40. Anastasia says:

    I think he looks so much better like this. I’ve actually never found him attractive, but this haircut may have changed my mind. I love it.

  41. Redstar says:

    He looks hawt!

  42. chefdi says:

    ladies ~ I am very new to this site and community and just want to tell you that I love having finally found my peeps!! Since the last WC (so sorry, a late bloomer, me) I have wanted to have these *very important* conversations, so while I don't have any particular comment about our man here other than I think he's quite gorgeous, I so look forward to more interaction with all of you, thank you for making me laugh and feeling at home!

    • elnino says:

      I'm kind of new too! Isn't this site great? I've always wanted to discuss footballers in this way in a girly way, not like with my brother and now I finally found others who are like me!

  43. livv4footy says:

    omgomgomgomgomg!!!! i loooove it sooo much. i can't even start to explain how long i have been waiting for the faux hawk type short style hair with the dark beautiful blondie type fluff in it.

    OMGOMGOMG. i want hiiiim soo bad. :D he looks extremely hot. hotter than before and even with the flippy hair he was still hot but OMG.

    my smile is sooo big right now. i need to calm down, don't i? :)

  44. Awww.. He looks adorable. I just hope he's fit for Spain's World Cup opener now. :(

  45. jess says:

    I love him to bits but that's going to take some getting used to.

    He's still hot though ;)

  46. DutchGooner says:

    O M G thank god he cut his hair even though i cant see his face properly i still think its a MAJOR UPGRADE cos the other hair was getting in my nerves and started to make him more girly!

  47. Molly says:

    I love it!! :) . The longer hair was beginning to look a bit girlish lol.

  48. julia says:

    absolute lovely :D finally! can't wait until i see him on the pitch with his cute little hairband styling his hair perfectly!

    • Caroline says:

      He won't have to wear the hairband anymore and while I feel sad a bit about its demise, he is sooo rocking this look!

  49. Miss_Nana says:

    He looks so much better! If you see his picture in the official World Cup sticker album, it looks like he got out of bed, put the Spain shirt on, took the picture but forgot to comb his hair because it's a mess. This is a major improvement! :P

    • Miss_Nana says:

      And remember that at Euro 2004 he played Spain's 3 group stage matches with 3 different hair styles?

  50. LuvinBale says:

    Not really sure of I like it. I love Torres- he'd adorable. But I'm just not sure about the new do. This might take some getting used to.

  51. klyn312 says:

    awww, Even I think he looks cute like this!

  52. bitterlemon says:

    OMG look at the size of the ears on that other guy!

  53. Katnando05 says:

    this had made my day my smile is so wide right now :D

    I hated the long blonde hair I perfer short hair on guys in my opinion

    I am so glad to see him go brown again like the world cup he played well so hopefully this one he will reminds me of when i laid my eyes on him in 2006 it's like falling in love all over again :)

    hope he wont ruin it with blonde hair dye again
