The world of football is a harsh place to be sometimes. As well as being scrutinised for their on-pitch performances, the elite of the football sphere will also be judged on aesthetic features, hair being among the most common points to critique.
For some, hair is a lifestyle choice, an important matter of permed principle that they choose to look after. For others, it evidently doesn't matter an inch.
Whether as a result of their own machinations or not, the following players can all head back to the drawing board/salon, take a good, hard look at themselves and then change the very top of that self drastically.

Ready yourselves for a barrage of hair-based puns, poking fun at others' unfortunate dandruff dilemmas, and read on for a breakdown of the worst hair in football because they're just not "worth it."
