Like other celebrities, football players care about their looks and always try to bring in something new to impress their fans. But, things don’t go as planned always. Sometimes the outcome is terrible. Today we want to look at footballers who were almost unrecognizable after changing their hairstyle.

Silva played for only two clubs during his career so far. He joined Valencia’s youth academy when he was only 14 years old, and left in 2010 when he moved to Manchester City, the club he is playing for till today.
The moment I realised I was old:
some little 18 y/o dweeb in the pub saying ‘it’s weird seeing David Silva with hair’ They’re clearly not old enough to remember the DON from back in the day… pic.twitter.com/AP6PLr3rfm

He is now one of the best players at the club. Apart from his beautiful skills, another thing that has remained remarkably consistent is his hair.
But all good things come to an end, and now Silva has decided to shave and adopted the skin head style like his manager.

Another man who recently decided to shave his signature hair is Manchester United midfielder Marrouane Fellaini.
When he joined Everton in 2008, his hairstyle was very famous and fans liked it so that even some of them would come to stadium wearing wigs trying to look like him.
Transfer Talk: Due to today’s poor performance Ranieri is looking to strengthen his midfield. Fulham and Manchester United have agreed a loan deal until the end of the season for Fellaini with an option to buy him for 18 million! #fulhamfc pic.twitter.com/28gCgNv3qQ

However, the today’s red devils’ man decided to shave his famous big hair one day before his 31st birthday.
The Belgian international posted three pictures of his new hair to Instagram. He captioned his entry with: “New year, new look #birthdaytomorrow.”

During his days at Everton, Lukaku was much known for his incredible striking skills, but also for his beautiful dreadlocks.
After just one season at the Merseyside club, the then Belgian youngster decided to cut-off his dreadlocks and he was looking almost unrecognisable without his trademark hairstyle.

‘It was time… bye dreads,’ Lukaku wrote on his Instagram shortly after removing his dreads
