Players all over the world want to have a sort of hairstyle that easily identifies them on the field and makes them standout out.

It is believed that those hairstyles are good for their branding and Ghanaian players are no exception to this fashion craze.

Black Stars skipper, Asamoah Gyan was recently listed among 46 footballers whose hairstyles are 'unethical' and don't conform to the laws in the United Arab Emirates where they ply their trade.

Gyan had to amend his Mohawk hairstyle he got for the Africa Cup of Nations (AFCON) in Gabon in order to feature for his club side Al Ahli Dubai, after returning from the AFCON. 

Aside Asamoah Gyan, several Ghanaian players would have to amend their haircuts to avoid being found guilty of 'unethical hairstyle' if they plied their trade in the stern terrain of the UAE.

Below are the list of five players whose  hairstyles are in that category.
