The current crop of Ashes players look as if they at least take an element of pride in their appearance, however over the years that most certainly hasn't been the case.
From Gower's perms to Gillespie's mulletts, there have been a number of extremely questionable barnets on show since the battle for the little urn first began.
So here at skysports.com we have taken it upon ourselves to put together a Top 10 Ashes hair-styles for your perusal.
My personal favourite of the above is Bob Willis' fetching perm on show on The Oval balcony ahead of the fifth Ashes Test in 1977. John Lever (left) and Graham Roope (right) have also failed to cover themselves in glory in this shot.
Well know for his grey perm during the 1980s, Mr Gower is pictured above leading his side out at Trent Bridge before the fifth Test against Australia in 1989. He has got off pretty lightly here as well - he's more embarrassed
Another player well known for his dodgy barnets is Kevin Pietersen. KP famously sported a 'skunk' in the 2005 Ashes series. His blue Mohican drew plenty of publicity at the time and thankfully has since disappeared.
Fans' favourite Jason Gillespie will arguably be remembered more for his gypsy-styled hairstyle than his cricketing ability - and that is saying something for a man who took over 250 Test wickets in his career. His long black locks were snapped in the 2005 series above.
Controversial Australian Andrew Symonds sported many a controversial hair-style throughout his career. His dreadlocks in the 2006/07 series Down Under were particularly distasteful.
Australia spin-king Shane Warne burst onto the international scene in 1993 and is another player to have hit the headlines with many a colourful crop. Warney has got off pretty lightly with his bleached blonde do on show on the 1997 tour of England.
Former England captain Tony Greig was another player who failed to lead by example in the hair styling department. His out of control comb over during the 1975 series deserves particular abuse.
'Beefy' was always going to make his way into the top ten following his past history of suspicious haircuts. The one pictured above was taken during the 1985 series at Lord's.
Another colourful character from Ashes tours gone by is former Aussie off-spinner Colin Miller. You name it, he's had it. Pink, yellow, green, red - Miller had more hair-styles than he did Test wickets. His yellow shaven do in 2001 features at the top of the page.
No Ashes compilation would be complete with a picture of Australian great Merv Hughes. Know worldwide for his 'handlebar' moustache, Merv also struggled for style at the top of his head. His marine-esque cut was taken during the 1990/91 Ashes tour Down Under.
