He's slick on the pitch, but Mohamed Salah has always been sharp in the grooming department, too.

The Egyptian footballer, 28, has become known for his signature curly locks – but his choice of hairstyles has been far from static throughout his career.

Making his international breakthrough in 2012, the year he signed with Swiss Super League club Basel, Salah sported a much shorter 'do with just a smattering of stubble.

By 2014, when he signed with English club Chelsea, the Basyoun-born star had experimented with closely cropped locks and more defined facial hair, before embracing his distinctive curls throughout his current tenure at Liverpool (and he's just recently had yet another haircut which is very slick on the sides).

Here, we take a look back through his style files to explore how Salah's grooming choices have evolved over the years.
