Stephan El Shaarawy
Since rising to Milan seniority in 2011, Stephan El Shaarawy's rising star has also coincided with his acquisition of serious plaudits in the hair department.
Usually, I'm not a fan of styles that appear to need quite so much maintenance as the Italian's does, but the faded sides look pretty slick when stacked against the high-rise slant that's perched above, patterns often etched in for good effect.
And joining El Shaarawy at the San Siro in the new year will be Keisuke Honda, not so long ago confirmed as a free transfer for the Rossoneri, bringing some additional salon know-how to the club.
For years, the Japanese international has sported a simple-but-effective peroxide-blond dye job. Man, I bet he doesn't even need styling gel for that thing.
It's no surprise that the current Spanish squad just so happens to have seen its dominant stride of the past six years coincide with an astounding cast of stars blessed in the follicle department.
Flying the flag at Manchester City is David Silva, whose hair is so silky that it looks like it hasn't changed a bit since he was 12 years of age.
L'Oreal would be fortunate to have the midfielder as part of their advertising crowd, not as a sponsor, but perhaps something that the scientists making their product might aspire to improve upon.
