This weekend the footballer-dyed-blonde-hair craze claimed a new victim: none other than 5-time Ballon d’Or winner himself Leo Messi. Following in the footsteps of Aaron Ramsey, Marouane Fellaini and even Phil Jones, the little Argentine showed off his new look on Instagram to a mixed response... Who’s going to be the next player to have a bang on the bleach?

So Messi has blonde hair, a beard and a sleeve tattoo. His next step is to open a coffee shop in Shoreditch.

Messi dodges tax, quits Argentina in a huff, gets garish dye job; Ronaldo wins hearts with Euro final tears. Was Messi the baddie all along?

Fabio Borini has even chimed in saying that Messi copied him…
