Fernando Torres Ends the Scissor Famine

It’s a good news/bad news type of situ, Kickettes.

The end of the season has brought us an unexpected gift from Fernando Torres, the Samson of the EPL. 

He has cut his hair.  Thank ye great hair Gods. Unfortunately, we’re not terribly inspired by his choice of new-doo. It’s an improvement, yes, but not as much as we would have hoped for.

Upon reflection, we’re beginning to accept the reality for loving the Ferd: you must allow him his hair transgressions.  We have faith he will work through this issue. He’s young. He has freckles. He is tall and a thigh off victor - let us not ask for too much.

Your thoughts? 

Our favourite Ferd style (we like it natural and short) is after the jump, along with shots of the new style and a few hair memories.



cheers Laura!

    oh. p.s. yes he should leave the trousers down a tad more….

  4. emzluvznando says:

    i love his new hair. its changed again now though… :-( …….

  7. Kay says:

    he’s HOT!i like his hair much better now!gorgeous as always..

  8. flash games says:

    Love Fernando whatever he does to his hair but I’ve always had a soft spot for blond with brown eyes. My fave was free games for mobile just after he signed for us and before he needed the headband.

    It’s a bit alarming but I’ve just realised that he looks like my brother in the shaven head pic!

  9. Flore. says:

    I think Nando's new hairstyle is cool! Don't like the really really short styles, flowing locks are much more appealing! I love his hair blonde too, so cool with freckles!

  10. Pat says:

    I love him either way. Although long hair on him is better. His photo wearing his red Jersey is perfect.

  11. k2k2milan says:

    I did like the blond highlights though.

  12. k2k2milan says:

    NOOOOO! Was my first reaction to reading the headline that he cut his hair, because I liked it how it was. But upon inspection of the 2 photos with his girlfriend, I like. (Those are recent pics I’m assuming?) …Truthfully, I don’t mind Nando in any hairstyle, he looks good in almost all of styles he’s done, if not amazing. Looking good El Nino!

  13. Freya says:

    Oh Dear is all i have to say! What happened…ok, admitedly the hair was getting a bit long but he really isn’t working this do! Bring back the cute blonde highlights!!

  14. raulitos says:

    i really like it
    he looks more like a “nino” and so adorable

  15. Awww MXA, of course not, I had the conditions clear from the start, you first! And then the rest. <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" /> You ogle Fourths brother (she will give in, soon you will have him delivered in a sparkly box with ribbons!) and I ogle Mands.

    (Btw Mand, there is no wonder why your brother is married if he got those genes!) Hehehe

  16. Erin says:

    Much better, but still not great. But thank you for all the pics, kickette!! :-) My favorite was the style when he signed for us (Liverpool)…shorter and blonder. But he looks pretty darn fine with a shaved head too! Mmmmmm….Fernando….

  17. DiorHeels says:

    LOVE IT! Better than his longass mop.

  18. Janis says:

    I like it. I know he doesn't cut his hair while he is winning, so I think it looks good. It was getting a bit too long for his headband to hold together.

  19. Sarah x says:

    I Think his hair looks best when its longish, but not too long like in the 1st picture, the bald one just doesnt do it for me :P

  20. Portia says:

    Oh Kickette, you and I are of like minds when it comes to Fernando's hair. I love it short and his natural hair color. Although I was overjoyed (no, really OVERJOYED) when I found out he cut off the atrocity, I must admit I am not too pleased with the current hairstyle. However, at this point I have decided to take what I can get from Senor Torres. I can only hope he'll start all over and go au natural again soon.

  21. Ella says:

    What on earth is going on in picture number 5 (from the top, black suit)? What's in his hair?! It looks like a hairband I used to a Spice Girl concert in '98, I was 13. That better be an old photo. Kind of like the new hair, kind of don't like it.

  22. April says:

    It's kind of ridiculous how much I LOVE him.

  23. dani,,PLQ,,MrsNiko&&Sergio x says:

    he loooks sooo hot !!!!

  24. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Welcome Mand, and prepare yourself for many marriage proposals for your brother!! Not from me however, I am holding out for a certain other Kickette’s sibling!! <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" />

  25. Mand says:

    Hi! I’ve been lurking for a while. Anyway, it’s been a pretty dull day. Just got home and saw this. I’m feeling much better now!

    Love Fernando whatever he does to his hair but I’ve always had a soft spot for blond with brown eyes. My fave was just after he signed for us and before he needed the headband.

    It’s a bit alarming but I’ve just realised that he looks like my brother in the shaven head pic!

  26. Becca x says:

    What Has Happened To Kickette?! :) Im Still TRying To GEt Used To It. I Like The Hair In THe Picture With The Liverpool Shirt, And I Hate Bald Footballers. It Was In Need Of A Cut Though.

  27. Bella says:

    He and Olalla are just so incredibly adorable together that it makes me short of breath and hope that my husband is the first man I see after those pics—have to go find out if he’s coming home for the CL match (which, as LFC fans, we will certainly NOT mind being distracted from).

    Good f*cking lord, now I’m faint and cross-eyed…so many couples and one in which I could actually feature………!!!!!!!!!!!! Kickettes, you have made my morning (and hopefully my afternoon <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="grin" style="border:0;" /> ).

  28. MissFabregas-Torres says:

    Sounds weird but he does suit the mohawk (Excuse my spelling) <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="tongue rolleye" style="border:0;" />
    He is just so yummy… Hehe

  29. LoveLamps says:

    Crap – I meant, Will I be planning a European Adventure or London Bliss for November?  Need caffeine now!

  30. LoveLamps says:

    Glad it is cut, but the color is terrifying.  Perhaps he’s like one of my friends whose hair cannot keep a nice color in the summer b/c of the sun???  Anyway, totally no longer on my crush list.  So over Nando.  So over.

    I’m not worried today at all.  The best team will win today and that’s that.  My greater concern is where Frank will be.  Will it be a European adventure or a week of London bliss?  Let’s get this game over with so Frankie can speak.

  31. Stab ME, not we. As for the edit button, I’m for it.

  32. Well just stab we with a dagger and rotate it! shut eye


    But that first pic. Oh my. He is so beautiful I can hardly speak, let alone type. *sigh*

  33. MrsS-Gewward-x [FoOtiie-Pwincezz] says:

    I Dont mind..he looks bufff anyday..anytime but i have to admit..he looks dare i say ok..not buff! his haircut makes me want to puke on it but it looks like someone already has!

  34. Signora Maldini says:

    @ Fourth – I wouldn’t freak out. Marca and AS are experts in invention. When they were trying to sign Ricky Kaka, they swore that he had talks with his father (who is his agent) and that Ricky wanted to come and all sorts besides.

    At the end of the day, he is still at Milan.

    Besides which, I saw an interview with C – Ron from whenever was that huge media day at Carrington and he said that he was staying.

  35. Aoife says:

    Yup Amelie…they were taken yesterday or Monday…:)

  36. Mand says:

    Thanks for the welcome Mrs Xabi and for the warning! I should just let everyone know that my brother is already married before the proposals come flooding in! I'm also hoping that the latest rumour about Xabi leaving is untrue. I really want to see him in a red shirt again next season.

  37. Amelie says:

    those pics with Olalla…are they the new hair cut too?

  38. jax says:

    Hmm still not seeing anything to lust over – the new haircut is a big old mess and the colour is very odd. Sort of titian (like me!) but not quite there. Is it strawberry blond or is it the light ? Anyway dark suits him better.

    Feel for you Man Utd/Chelsea faithful – the wait is agony ! Hope Owen’s playing…. My wine is chilled and my big screen is set up. Just need to drug the children to ensure complete peace for the match…. cheese

  39. Amelie says:

    Theres a whole series of those shirtless pics. it was a shoot for pepe jeans i think. y’all should check em out…

    He is beautiful, pleased he’s had it chopped a bit and i understand why he waited til the end of the season.

    The mullet was the only really bad one….

    Please can we not call him Ferd?

  40. And now there’s another Cristiano rumour on the ‘net.  I put it up on my blog.  F*cking agents, I f*cking hate the f*cking pr*cks . . .  angry

  41. Johnna says:

    Oh good god, what colour is his hair exactly? It looks sort of like… puke. Hmmmm.

    Fourth, I’m with you. Stupid nerves. Stupid boys. <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="sick" style="border:0;" />

  42. venice says:

    the mullet/fauxhawk was great, he’s just the right type to pull it off

  43. Paris says:

    I will love him no matter what hair style he picks but if I could choose it would be short and spikey. Keep the Torres threads coming Kickette I am loving this.

  44. Signora Maldini says:

    Mullets and mohawks are the devil’s work. Angelic Fer should never go anywhere near them again.

    I don’t mind him with the shaved head. It’s not my fav but he can work it.

    I didn’t mind the long hair for the *most* part though it did start to get a bit excessive and I’m glad he’s cut it.

    Not loving the color but the cut itself works for me.

    Then again this is Fer.

    Pretty much everything about him works for me.

  45. Deanna says:

    He looks like Owen Wilson in the first pic!!! (It is Owen Wilson, right? The american actor who was there in that movie with Jackie Chan? I tend to mix up the ballers’ and actors’ names! grin )

    I love that pic of him in the suit! And yeah, I prefer the dark hair to the blond.

    Honestly, at this moment I don’t care very much.  I can’t even concentrate on Fernando!! Please someone fast forward time so that I can know what is going to happen tonight!

  46. Gigi, there’s rumours flying around that he is not fit.  Because he didn’t train with the guys yesterday and SAF said he has his own training routine at the moment because of all his injuries.  So, there’s all sorts of speculation.  Please, Vida, play!!!  Please, please please!!!!

  47. Aoife says:

    Mmmm topless Nando. I keep clicking back here to distract me from clients on the phone shouting at me. :(

    Huyton Princess – you’re right. Olalla does look really well. The nails – I can live with. (Since I had them myself for a few months – WAG in training. wink)

    It’s funny that so many ladies here love Fernando and yet we don’t hate his lady. She’s lovely!

  48. Chel.C says:

    I tend to more attracted to the fourth picture…but maybe that’s just cuz Nando is shirtless…

    I like the floppy/shaggy ‘do a bit more than the shaved head or the slicked back nonsense.

  49. FootballerChick43 says:

    I’m not a fan of mullets. In any situation. On any person. But… I think I kind of like this look on Nando. I may be the only one to say it, but… wow. Its kind of cute. It might work. Maybe… of course, I’m still asleep so…

  50. Huyton Princess says:

    Oh my God…in the 3rd and 4th pictures, Nando looks absolutely amazing.

    Olalla looks good there too. Her clothes are nice and she’s wearing heels but…*gulp* she has fake WAGish nails <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="big surprise" style="border:0;" />

  51. Gigi Neville-Brown says:

    Me likes your security word, Fourth.  <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="cheese" style="border:0;" />

    Fourth, dare I ask, but is everything alright with Vida?  Not sure if I want to hear the answer.

    I need to do stuff, I should do stuff, I have to do stuff, but football is getting in the way.  I want to run around my flat, then the neighborhood, then the entire city cause I can’t sit still.

  52. Pavi says:

    I agree that Nando with the short and spiky or bald is the best.  We do have the rest of the summer to see if he’ll make any drastic changes to it before the start of the season.

    Aoife- I’m with you on the fact that Nando can wear and look however he wants but I still think he’s hot.

    The shirtless Nando pic has me all flustered now.  And Nando in a suit is just too sexy…but I’m a sucker for any man in a suit.

  53. Cherry says:

    I’m not sure about the color. And it’s nowhere near being a mullet. It’s just cut. I don’t care if he goes back to his natural color, but I prefer the blonde Torres. And as for women that like bald men, I don’t understand it. I like putting my hands in their hair. I do not want to rub a slick or rough spikey head. But that’s just me and each to his own. Either way, it’s Torres and that face is to die for. Not counting the rest of his hot self.

  54. I posted it this over on the CL thread, but we might as well hijack this one too. ( Gigi started it! ).  And Kickette seems a little sleepy this morning.

    I was awake all night.  I got up around 3 and listened to SSN on the computer, because I have a bad feeling about Vida.  I'm getting through the morning on coffee, and now I'm so jittery, I think I might throw up.  Or strangle someone.  I'm heading home at lunch to watch the game, and I should go for a long walk beforehand just to get away from the computer and all the rumours, but I can't stand not knowing what's going on.  Oh, god, guys, just please don't f*ck it up.  Please. 

    My security word:  during99.  <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="surprised" style="border:0;" />

  55. Huyton Princess says:

    The new cut is fine at the front. The back could be better. The colour is…meh. Weird. He needs to sort that out.

    The bald look is not that great, imo. Although, that pic of him is a pretty good one <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="wink" style="border:0;" /> The mullet however, was the lowest of the low. Hopefully he won’t stoop to that level ever again.

    I like his hair long, but there are limits. When he first transferred here he looked really good, particularly when the hair started to grow out just a little. That was great. And…I cannot believe I’m having such a lengthy discussion about hair!

    In short, he is beautiful and I love him. He can do no wrong.

  56. Aoife says:

    Dammit, I totally misread what Kickette said. She prefers the skinhead, which I must admit…I also adore.

    Edit button would be so handy here.

    I’m totally biased. He’s my favourite player…

  57. Aoife says:

    Ahhh, two Nando threads in a week! We’re being spoiled. =)

    As I’ve said before, he could be wearing glittery dreads and I’d still fancy the arse off him!

    But Kickette has it right, the short, dark hair is the best. Embrace your roots Nando.

    That last pic? Of him in the suit? *licks* I’m coming over all unneccessary. And also topless Torres – I like

    Awww…I really can’t work now! I’m too busy daydreaming….

  58. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    I like it best short and spikey or bald! I’m just not a fan of long hair, unless it is on the perfection that is Roque Santa Cruz!!!

    The new do is a big improvement, but it’s a little Nicky Clarke for my liking.

    He looks good in a suit though wink

  59. Betsy says:

    I like the shorter shaggier look best. Shaved head is not so attractive but the longer hair with center part is just scary!

  60. Oh, my god, he just dropped completely off my cutie-pie radar.  With a thunk.

    <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="gulp" style="border:0;" />

  61. Gigi Neville-Brown says:

    Yikes!  Not sure what happened to Nando in that top photo, but short and dark gets my vote, along with the fauxhawk.

    On a different note, my stomach is in knots.  <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="sick" style="border:0;" />

    Come on UNITED!!!!

  62. sarabee says:

    Its a Mullet!  And looks like the garden shears were used, to boot!

    Get it off, Nando, the shorter look is much less scary!

  63. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    Xabi is NOT leaving!!! He will be wearing a Liverpool shirt next season, trust me!! :o )

  64. RedGirl (Mrs. Casill says:

    It’s definitely an improvement, but I don’t like it that much. It seems that the stylist cut his hair with his teeth instead of using the scissor.

  65. MrsXabiAlonso says:

    So, just because Mand has a Torres lookalikey brother your ditching me Malin?? <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="downer" style="border:0;" /> *sobs* <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="downer" style="border:0;" />

    And PENALTIES!!!!!! I’m freaking out here!!! Why do I care so much?? <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="confused" style="border:0;" />

  66. Oh I got in. Yay! Mand, I’m Swedish, if that might interest you. <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" />

    I will be happy to join the ogling crew, teehee.

  67. sarabee says:

    Im grossed out I cant get on the community thingy thing yet. TammyV promised so much fun that I have gotten in my head there are male lapdancers and stuff there waiting for me.

    I hope it goes to penalties. You have to WORK for it, lads.

    cough***YOULL NEVER WALK ALONE***cough

  68. Jamila says:

    at least it is better than before

    erm i think the best is the one for when he signed for liverpool…

  69. Mand says:


    I’m English & have been a LFC fan for longer than I would like to say. I get to most of the games at Anfield so consider myself pretty lucky.

    Thanks for the offer of friendship. You certainly wouldn’t be the first of my friends to ogle my brother!

    I seem to have strayed from the subject of Fernando & his hair. I’m not sure what it is about Nando but I think the smile means he can get away with the hair.

  70. Ah, what a pity. But the offer of being my best friend stands. Everyone who likes Fernando, LFC or football overall are my friends. <img src="; width="19" height="19" alt="smile" style="border:0;" /> And I can still ogle your brother if I get the chance huh?

    So, where are you from?

    And I’m working as hell to get into that community. Gnnn.

  71. Mand says:

    Malin Hi!

    I’ve only just started posting and everything’s changed. I’m trying not to panic!

    The resemblance to my brother only exists when Nando has his hair REALLY short. I’m sorry to say my brother is married but if it helps he’s not as tall as Nando. Oh and he’s a fair bit older!

  72. *Quickly wipes away tears and check appearance in mirror* Ohh, well hi there Mand and welcome, I think you might be my new best friend. grin  That would be next to MXA then. Soooo, tell me a bit more about your brother, I’m all hearing!

  73. Pavi (Mrs Metzelder) says:

    This has to be my favorite Nando hair:…. Not too long but simple.

  74. carly says:

    He could grow an Afro and I still wouldn't care. Don't find him hot in any way…sorry.

  75. Lucy says:

    Oh Nando, you gorgeous gorgeous man! My favourite picture is number 5! I agree Kickette, it's not the best of 'do's but like I said before, it doesn't really matter in the great scheme of things. Nando is Nando. Love is love. *Swoons*

  76. Avenath says:

    I've said it once and i'll say it again…i will take Torres in any shape or size…he is hotness personified!! But i must say, i never thought he'd have more hair-do changes than Cristiano Ronaldo…who would have thunk?! :p

  77. carly says:

    He could grow an Afro and I still wouldn’t care. Don’t find him hot in any way…sorry.

  78. Lucy says:

    Oh Nando, you gorgeous gorgeous man! My favourite picture is number 5! I agree Kickette, it’s not the best of ‘do’s but like I said before, it doesn’t really matter in the great scheme of things. Nando is Nando. Love is love. *Swoons*

  79. Pavi (Mrs Metzelder) says:

    This has to be my favorite Nando hair: Not too long but simple.

  80. justlikexabi says:

    don’t care about his hair he’s just gorgeous as long as he scores for liverpool

  81. Aoife says:

    Just adding some more love for Fernando here. Doesn’t his bum look fine in those jeans? (Belt’s a bit Euro-pop. Damn Europeans) But let them just fall down a little bit more…yum!
