Short spikes in 2008:


Virat has been following the trend right from his first appearance when the world witnessed Kohli's magic as a 19 year-old-teenager.


At that he used to keep short spikes with equal hair length on the sides, keeping them uncombed. The spikes were in fashion since the beginning of 2000's.

For a more clean and matured look,he carried the short spikes with flattened and combed sides.

2012 brought Kohli into limelight as he made wonders with the bat. First scoring his maiden Test ton against the Aussies, then a magnificent Asia Cup where he struck his career best ODI score of 183 against Pakistan.


He once again changed his style appeal with turning to his normal textured hair having a trimmed beard.



Short fade with lines on the side in 2013:


In 2013, Kohli really got into the groove with media and popularity all around him. He started featuring in ads and showing up to events with a strong fashion game.


Here is the point where he gave his haircut a completely different approach with a slight fade. Adding to the charm, he flaunted the hairstyle with two side cuts with one cut ending on his eyebrow.


This style became quite popular amongst the youngsters with people trying to match King Kohli's hairdo.

Talking of his hairstyle, he kept a messy undercut which went so well with the full beard. It is one of the favourite Kohli looks among the fans.
