Luke Littler shows off new haircut as darts star prepares for more Premier League action

Must read

Luke Littler has taken to social media to show off a new haircut ahead of Thursday’s Premier League action.

The teenager has made a strong start to the competition so far, picking up five points.


That’s the same amount as Michael van Gerwen, who beat Littler despite appearing to break the rules during their showdown earlier this week.

On social media, Littler was tagged in a post by Hamido barbers, who are based in Warrington.

They included a snap of Littler’s new haircut on their story, saying: “Back for a freshen up @lukethenukelittler.”

The teenager’s sides were cut short, with his hair swept to his right.

Littler is still adjusting to life in the public eye having only just recently become a household name.

The youngster was relatively unknown prior to the start of the World Darts Championship, which started in December.

But Littler made the final of that competition and has continued his impressive form in the time since.

He was unlucky to lose to Van Gerwen on Thursday night, missing two match darts as he crashed to defeat.

And Littler admitted he was ‘disappointed’ by the result, having pushed his experienced opponent all the way in Berlin.

After the match, Van Gerwen was asked whether his matches with Littler are ‘special’.

Yet the Dutchman said: “That’s not true, [facing Littler] is not special.

“It’s not special because we’re going to have finals like this another 10 times this year.

“I mean we play each other so many times that it’s not going to be special.”

He then added: “But of course it’s important.

“You have to play well if you want to be on top… I thought I played better than everyone else tonight.

“I think I can play like this a lot more at times.”

Littler, meanwhile, has revealed he plays Xbox until the early hours of the morning on a regular basis – just like many other youngsters around his age.
