ONE current Arsenal star looks totally unrecognisable with a dramatic bald look.
Now fans are rating his hair comeback as the “best ever seen”.
The Gunners man, now 27, played a pre-season friendly in August 2021 and stunned supporters with his change of appearance.
He had shaved off his thinning golden brown hair and even grown a bit of a beard over the off-season.
But fast forward to now and the former England Under-21 defender has a beautiful set of luscious thick wavey locks.
And the ace was more than happy to talk openly about his hair transplant to counteract his receding hairline.
The mystery footballer is… Rob Holding.
A delighted Holding is clearly buzzing with the results and said in 2021: “Because it’s World Mental Health Day, I struggled so much with my hair and self-confidence.
“I have had so many messages about where I have had my procedure.
“Wimpole Clinic in London treated me so well and I’m so happy with the results.

“I have so many messages of other people affected by simple mental health issues and self-confidence issues.
“I couldn’t recommend this place enough, let’s all be better.”
And his adoring fans have been left in awe by the remarkable transformation.
One said: “Holding’s hair transplant might be the greatest one ever.”
Another wrote: “Rob Holding’s hair, what a comeback story.”
A third added: “Whoever did Rob Holding’s hair.. why are they not world famous yet?”
And a final user brilliantly commented: “Rob Holding’s hair has reached the ultra-luxury level. Feel I could bounce on it like a trampoline.”
