Footballer John Terry Spends £145,000 On Haircuts

Whilst recent surveys show that women are still paying more than men for many things, it’s unlikely many women – or men – will have a hairdressing bill as big as Chelsea footballer, John Terry.

Pre-match ritual

CJohn Terry Pays For Chelsea Team Haircuts for 8 yearselebrity hairdresser, Leo Bancroft, recently revealed on Instagram – in a post which has recently been deleted but can be seen here – that the 34 year old defender has been paying for haircuts for the first team players and backroom staff at the West London football club for the past 8 years.

In addition to visits to Chelsea’s Cobham training ground, Bancroft is also required to pop in to Stamford Bridge for pre-match trims. “It has almost become something of a pre-match ritual” the Weybridge salon-owner said.

‘Some people can’t do it’

Bancroft, who is appears as a hair expert on ITV’s This Morning show, charges £55 for a men’s haircut. Based on this, the Chelsea ‘ritual’ is thought to cost the captain around £2,000 every 6 weeks, making it almost £145,000 over the past 8 years. With a bill like that Terry can at least be thankful that manager, Jose Mourinho has been known to cut his own hair.

Recounting an incident last season where the Special One decided to shave his head, Mourinho explained that he sent his wife a selfie of his new cut first. “I sent a picture before I arrived to see if I could go in… I did it myself. I asked Fernando [Torres] to give me his machine and I did it myself in front of the mirror. It is nice and it is cheap. In a couple of months I will have hair again. Some people can’t do it”.

Petr Cech and Branislav Ivanovic Display Classic Signs of Male Pattern Baldness

Left: Petr Cech,  Right: Branislav Ivanovic

Luckily for the Chelsea team, and their manager, most of them seem to have pretty decent heads of hair, with no traces of hair loss yet. However, whether this is from natural good luck or through timely use of preventative hair loss treatments is unknown.

Only goalkeeper Petr Cech and defender Branislav Ivanovic, both pictured right, show any real signs of male pattern baldness, with both men having a noticeably receding hairline as well as general thinning on top. Although Cesc Fabregas was the subject of hair loss gossip during the summer, recently his hair seems to be as full and thick as ever leading to online speculation that his pre-season buzz cut was perhaps due to a hair transplant.

If you are concerned about hereditary hair loss and would like to consider taking preventative measures to preserve or regrow your hairline, contact a hair loss expert. They will be able to diagnose your condition and stage of shedding, before talking you through the best options to help you retain or restore your hair using specialist male hair loss treatments.
