The England international is sporting a much longer trim these days, compared to relatively short cut with a fade he had when he broke into the Blues first-team.
Mount has been spotted regularly run his hands through his hair and it's not gone down well with some fans on social media.
In fact, a couple of compilations have even been created to highlight just how much Mount has been sorting his hair out while the game is going on.
"Mason Mount hair flicks highlight," a 16-second video, did the rounds on social media - while there was also a separate viral clip focusing on just the Real Madrid defeat.
On this occasion, the Twitter user was calling for him to win the '2022 Salon d'Or'.

Against Real Madrid, where Chelsea lost the Champions League quarter-final first leg 3-1, there were two instances of Mount's hair-flicking that really angered fans.
When a cross was swung in for Romelu Lukaku, he was doing his hair as he watched the Belgian striker miss the target.

But even worse was the time where the play was right near him and Mount was slow to react because he was focusing on his longish locks.
One might think it's not that deep but Mount's constant hair-fixing has become a major talking point and irritated a whole lot of people:

Mason Mount should fuss with his hair more after touching the ball each time. He doesn't do it nearly enough lol.— cb (@chiroboi) April 6, 2022
No player averaged more xHF (expected hair flicks) per 90 than Mason Mount against Real Madrid! Generational— chelsea fan (@clinicalkai) April 7, 2022
Mason Mount started paying attention to his hair instead of concentrating on the ball. Boy suddenly thinks he's all grown up and a Legend now cos he was voted CFC POTY last season. Hmmm🤦♂️— Bill Reagan (@ilove2tweets) April 8, 2022
Mason Mount I dont tweet alot or at all. But you always touching your hair at football pitch has got me really irritated. I feel like you touch your hair more than the ball. Take a millitary hair cut style and get back to work hard and strong like a tough lad i thought you were— Kai Mount1 (@KaiMount2) April 8, 2022

Mount has scored eight goals in 43 appearances this season and just one off equalling his tally last season.
But the general consensus is that he hasn't been able to replicate his form in 2020/21, where Chelsea won the Champions League for a second time.
