It’s no news that most athletes become successful businessmen, with Sports being an industry with great revenue streams. And while we all know having experience in one industry and learning from your own successes and failures can lead to a great entrepreneurial mind, let’s not exclude the looks. We can’t argue here that most athletes understand with good looks comes self confidence and that itself is a solid trait among successful people.

While you check out this great infographic by Men’s Hairstyles Club which lists some of the best male athletes hairstyles of the moment, let’s explore what each hairstyle says about your approach in business.

1. Baby Faced Assasin’s Low Fade
