Ireland and Leinster rugby star Ian Madigan is as well known for his changing hair styles as his skills on the pitch.

While sports fans were focused on the no 10's performance on the pitch in today's clash against Georgia, style stalkers noticed Mr Madigan was sporting yet another new 'do.

The 25-year-old fly-half’s latest  style is a raw back and sides with a grown out top, the latest experiment in his evolving personal style.

"It's like a slick back with a fade on the side but fades slightly grown out to a one, it's slightly disconnected on top too," Christopher Cleary, a barber at Dublin's Ink Factory said.

The old school hairstyle Ian is rocking is inspired by cuts from the 1930s era.

It appears that he's keen to make history both professionally and personally in the vein of David Beckham who made male grooming not only fashionable - but essential.

Twitter took notice of Ian's latest, greatest haircut, while the rest of scratched our heads in amazement at what has to be the world's best hairspray.
