It’s official: Tom Brady may have just passed David Beckham as the biggest metrosexual in professional sports. The world is sadly all too familiar with the “Evolution of Tom Brady Hair”, originally starting with the standard ordinary guy look that often resulted in thousands of ladies swooning.
Then, we had the long hair, which made some women drop off the “Brady Bandwagon”, followed by the “Bieber Hair” (below), which led to a smattering of jokes and comparisons.
Brady eventually chopped that mop off, leaving the majority of folks left to only talk about the quarterback’s football talents and jaw-dropping stat lines – what a concept!
Alas, that look could only last long, as recently highlighted by People.com’s StyleWatch, Tom Brady was seen at the Met Gala sporting a new do.
People are calling the hairstyle a variation of things, including a fauxhawk or as People.com referred to it, a “semi faux hawk that slanted to the right”.
Call it what you want, but it’s not the standard look of your run-of-the-mill NFL quarterback.
Many point to wife Gisele Bundchen as the culprit for all the crazy hairstyles, but she has proclaimed her innocence. But even if she was guilty of that, it’s Gisele, people (see right).
Yes, we forgive her – a million times over.
Brady’s new look is not so much a fauxhawk, but more so a hybrid that mixes in the hairstyle concepts of the ‘There’s Something About Mary’ hair gel scene, the ‘80’s band ‘A Flock of Seagulls’ and cartoon character Foghorn Leghorn.
If you’re not buying into that, then take a look for yourself.

I say, I mean, I say… someone please talk him into dying his hair red.
If only Brady’s stylist could run – and run so far away – so we don’t have to keep hearing about his hair. Instead, we can strictly hear about his Hall of Fame football numbers.
Wishful thinking – well, not for everyone.
As always, thanks for visiting The Wife Hates Sports!
