F1 Drivers’ Hairstyles Ahead of the 2024 Season

F1 Drivers’ Hairstyles Ahead of the 2024 Season

With the 2024 Formula 1 season kicking off in March, all eyes are set on the twenty drivers vying for the championship title. While new liveries and new team names (Visa Cash App RB, anyone?) have already been revealed, here at Modern Barber we’re taking a closer look at the new hairstyles on display on the F1 grid.

Valtteri Bottas’ Aussie Upgrade

Last year the Finnish driver impressed fans by undergoing a mullet makeover, inspired by his summer spent in Australia. For the 2024 F1 season, Bottas seems to have upgraded his much-loved look, visiting @attaboy_hair for a fresh trim and a full-head bleach. The comments were full of praise for the new look, with one user commenting: “Valtteri is just living his best life and I love that for him.”

As F1 drivers’ hairstyles go, this has to be one of our favourites.


Alex Albon Goes Back to his Roots

2023 was a big year for Albon, who managed an impressive points haul in a car that lacked a competitive edge. Throughout the season, the Thai-British driver also impressed fans with his willingness to try new looks – including white-blonde and frosted tips. However, it seems that Williams Driver has settled on a more natural hair colour for the 2024 season, returning to dark brown. Still, with 24 races lined up, there’s plenty of time to try something new.

Oscar Piastri’s Gen Z-Coded Cut

Oscar Piastri started his F1 career on a high by landing himself two podium finishes in 2023. At just 22 years’ old, it’s clear that the McLaren driver has a bright future ahead of him in the sport. Currently the youngest driver on the F1 grid, Piastri can often be seen wearing a hairstyle that resembles The Leo, making him excellent inspiration for your Gen Z clients.

Lewis Hamilton’s Signature Style

While Lewis Hamilton spent the 2023 F1 season without any race wins, the British driver still received a lot of praise in the paddock – most notably, for his style. It seems that the seven-time world champion is following the mantra, ‘If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it’ – at least where his hairstyle is concerned – by sticking with his signature twist braids, often worn pulled back into a bun.
