Tennis superstar Roger Federer is known as a classy man and his hair has been no less. Roger Federer (born 8 August 1981) has wavy brown hair that he has always kept neat albeit at the same time young looking. Throughout his career, Roger Federer’s hair has gotten shorter and shorter as he started his tennis career in the late ’90s with long hair and by the early 2010s Roger Federer has preferred shorter haircuts and hairstyles.
Roger Federer Hair, Hairstyles & Haircuts – Shoulder Length
Federer started his professional tennis career having a Shoulder Length hairstyle, which he was able to pull off as he has thick wavy hair strands that are healthy. Since tennis is a sport that requires quick movements, Roger Federer would tie his hair into a ponytail and would further secure his long hair with a head band; a trick that other professional tennis players with long hair use. Off the tennis court, Roger would wear his long wavy hair loose and dangling rather than tied.

Roger Federer Hair, Hairstyles & Haircuts – Long Middle Parted
Federer got tired of the Shoulder Length hairstyle by the early 2000s and cut his locks to about 6 inches on the top and 4 inches on the sides and back. He would the style his hair by parting it from the middle. Of course, during tennis matches his hair would be all over the place and would lose the middle parted emphasis, but Roger Federer would continue to use a head band to secure the hair off his visual field. Off the court, his middle parted wavy hair looked diesel and the ladies were throwing panties at him.

Ever since, Roger Federer has maintained his hair at a medium length up to 2013. Roger Federer styles his hair with a middle part and a side part, with the hair on his back and sides to a shorter length than the top (as said, top is 3 inches, back and sides is 1 inch).
