With the price on his head hovering near £86m, Gareth Bale knew he had to impress the Real Madrid fans from the start. Forget the faltering Spanish and the nervous keepy-ups, he did this mostly through his hair. Wearing a sharp suit with a skinny tie, hankerchief and tie pin for the photo op at the Bernabeu, Bale introduced his trademark quiff – already imitated by most of the male British population under the age of 24 – to Spain in excellent condition. Bale styled it with wax and combed over to the side – a smart and sleek contrast to the more spiky version known to the White Hart Lane faithful. It's a subtle change but one that signalled the £86m man was ready for the next chapter in his career. Seeing "the Bale" on the streets of Madrid is only a matter of time. And in North London? Arsenal signing Mesut Özil is your hair-spiration. Once fond of a mullet, the German ace is currently sporting a subtle fin cut.
