The best and worst haircuts of Liverpool players as Mohamed Salah presents his new look

Liverpool striker Mohamed Salah has unveiled a bold new look. The number 11 apparently shaved his head, showing off the new cut in a photo posted to Instagram.

Salah’s hair has been iconic during his time in Liverpool, but one of the Egyptian’s trademarks appears to have disappeared, at least for now. Salah, who is currently on holiday after the season ended last weekend, has only one year left on his contract at Anfield, although he is expected to stay at Liverpool this summer and help the Reds enter the era by Arne Slot.




With the 31-year-old revealing his new look, Liverpool.com has taken a look at the best and worst examples of haircuts among Liverpool players in recent years. You can let us know your opinion in the survey below or in the comments section.

In the current group, Dominik Szoboszlai always looks stylish. The Hungarian, signed from RB Leipzig last summer, slipped towards the end of the campaign in terms of form, but his hair was always in exactly the right place. Alisson Becker and Virgil van Dijk also tend to look pretty good.

Darwin Núñez’s ponytail, which debuted during the 4-3 win over Fulham this season, didn’t last long and was probably the right decision. Harvey Elliott, meanwhile, arrived with a very different cut than the one he sports now.

It would be fair to say this is his best look… and at least one of his teammates agreed with that in an interview this season when the 21-year-old was gently criticized for his old man bun.

Going further back, Mario Balotelli was a classic of the bad hair genre. The Italian always wanted to stand out from the crowd, but his mohawk was probably a questionable decision. Mind you, he did some other things during his career that were even more so. Of all Balotelli’s eccentricities, his barbershop decisions were the least of several clubs’ concerns.
