Peter Wright has appeared without his trademark mohawk and head paint look after winning the PDC World Darts Championship.
'Snakebite' goes to great lengths to pull off his eye-catching hair-do, with wife Jo spending two hours preparing a unique style for every match.
It has been a part of his routine for as long as most darts fans can remember.
However, after securing his second Sid Waddell Trophy with a 7-5 victory over Michael Smith, the 51-year-old opted to give his partner and the spiky hair the day off.
Instead, he sported his natural look which many may not be used to seeing him with.
Wright sat down with the PDC to reflect on his comeback victory over 'Bully Boy' with flat hair and not a drop of paint in sight.
He was still wearing his oche clobber, though, with his newly-won trophy beside him.
The two-time champ said: "To get it back [after winning in 2020], deep down do you think you’re gonna win it again, and yeah I did. Strange, strange feeling.
Do you predict more success for Snakebite in 2022? Let us know in the comments section.
"The whole tournament itself was great and it was great to have the fans back as well."
As part of his relaxed celebrations, Wright has admitted he had a cup of tea and a Pot Noodle once he returned home from Alexandra Palace.
He has been reunited with Jo and their daughter, who are the reason why he switched from a surprisingly conventional look in the 90s to a much more recognisable one.
Wright told the Mail back in 2013: "It takes about two hours every day after practice in my chilling out time. I sit there chilling, and my wife Jo does my hair.
"It's down to my daughter because she's the one who has all different colour hair and I thought "I'll try that". No other dart players have tried it and it just stuck.
"I class it as going to war with my war paint on ready for battle."
