Cristiano Ronaldo proclaimed he "wants to look beautiful" in a video message to his fans on Wednesday.
The Real Madrid forward is famed for caring deeply about the way he looks, though his detractors derive glee from mocking Ronaldo's renowned obsession with his image.
The 30-year-old underwear model has never let the criticism dampen his open attitude towards his perceived vanity and his latest video was taken while being preened by two male hair-stylists.
Referring to the line that has been shaved into the side of his hair, Ronaldo asked his Twitter followers for their opinion on how to make him look as handsome as possible.
"Hi guys, I'm cutting my hair here with my friends," the former Manchester United winger said in accompanying video. "What do you think with the line or with no line? Let me know because I want to look beautiful! Take care."
Ronaldo missed Real Madrid's 2-0 victory over Tottenham on Tuesday due to a minor injury and will not feature on Wednesday when Rafa Benitez's men clash with Bayern Munich, too.
