Just days later, he has revealed a brand new, dreadlock hairstyle and it's received quite the reaction on social media.
On the sidelines, the 26-year-old has opted for a bold new look as he fights to be fit for the World Cup
Stricken Paris Saint-Germain and Brazil forward Neymar has taken the opportunity to try out a bold new look during his time on the sidelines.
The 26-year-old suffered a broken metatarsal in PSG's Ligue 1 victory over Marseille at the end of last month and opted to undergo surgery, meaning he is in a race against time to reach peak fitness for Brazil's 2018 World Cup campaign.
Those stresses did not appear to be getting to the star too much when he posted on Instagram to show off a new hairstyle, complete with dreadlocks, as he continues his recuperation in his homeland.
