PIERRE-EMERICK AUBAMEYANG has shocked fans by getting a new hair style on international duty.
The Arsenal forward was sporting the fresh look on social media after Gabon qualified for the 2022 Africa Cup of Nations.

The 31-year-old shared an Instagram story by Willy Aubameyang, his half-brother and former international colleague, featuring his new box braids.
The 34-year-old tagged recording artists Travis Scott and Sean Paul in the post, who are believed to be the inspiration behind the fresh trim.
The older sibling was also sporting the braids, posting the caption: “New song coming soon.”
It is believed the caption was just a bit of banter, although I’m sure many would enjoy hearing the Arsenal star’s vocal talents.
Earlier this month, fellow forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic performed a duet with Bologna manager Sinisa Mihajlovic at a music festival.
While there are doubts about Aubameyang’s music career, he is flourishing on the pitch – scoring and assisting in Gabon’s 3-0 win against DR Congo.
Gabon’s qualification isn’t great news for Arsenal boss Mikel Arteta, who is set to be without his captain for up to a MONTH as he participates in the Africa Cup of Nations.
The tournament is set to be held between January 9 and February 6 next year.
Arteta’s relationship with Aubameyang hasn’t been great recently, dropping the forward for the north London derby against Tottenham.
The two are believed to have settled their differences, though, with Arteta wanting to ‘move forward’ and finish the season strongly.
