Is Tom Brady giving us a preview of his Met Gala do? The footballer experimented once again with his mane this weekend, attending celebrity hairstylist Harry Josh’s party in N.Y.C. with a mini-cowlick-meets-fauxhawk look that reminds us a lot of the famous cartoon character Tintin. (Agree? You make the call with the help of the photo above.)

It also looks like the New England Patriots quarterback added some blond highlights to his normally brunet hue. And he even dressed similar to the beloved comic reporter, wearing a preppy blue plaid shirt and high-waisted red pants. Brady’s wife Gisele Bündchen attended the star-studded party (Taylor Swift was there too, with her bestie Karlie Kloss!) looking flawless as usually in a metallic mini teamed with her signature tousled waves.

For the 2012 Met Gala, Brady also wore a mini fauxhawk style, which he referred to as “Just a little different haircut.” His trendy hair moves prompted many to ask about his wife’s involvement with his look.

“She likes pretty much what I like. She leaves it to me,” he told Sports Illustrated. “Every man should know, if you’re comfortable and you like it, you should do it.”

“Everyone always worries about what the girls think, what the guys think,” he continues. “If you like it, do it. To me, if you’re trying to impress a girl, get a date, they’re gonna like that more because you’re a confident guy. That’s what it comes down to.”

We can’t wait to see how Brady styles his mane tonight. How about you? Are you a fan of his latest style? Share your thoughts below!

Maybe it’s the lighting cause that looks TERRIBLE

sky on

sorry but he looks ridiculous. I would understand if he were a rock star, but he is football QB.

heather on

the only excuse for that hairdo is that he lost a bet.

Dawn on

He is not much to look at to begin with, and now he looks ridiculous!



Helen on

Perhaps he thinks he can get away with all these ridiculous looks because he’s such a handsome man…but come on! He looks absolutely foolish!!

Tina on

OMG, he looks ridiculous.

Katy e on

Small children have given themselves better haircuts.

3goofyfeet on

As usual, he looks like a major d-bag.

bitsy on

what a clown. he looks like a fool! not a fan anyway of either of them.

Jane on

Tommy – we love you but that hairdo has to go! Yuck!!!!!

Momof4 on

Maybe he is trying to get her to divorce him. Their happiness seems like a mirage. She seems so awful. I refuse to buy Pantene or H&M because of her. He looks like an idiot!

Barb on

It is not his best look but he should have fun with his hair if he wants (and while he still has it!).

kw on

OMG – they are both so FUGLY – what the heck happened?

My year old grandson looks much cuter … with the same hair do …. Tom Brady just looks silly.

Lee on

All I care about his how he plays on the football field, it’s a free country he can do whatever he wants with this hair

MEG on

He gets worse looking as he ages!! That horse face wife of his does too!

Les on

Looks as bad if not worse than when he let is get long.

heather on

Funny he went to the birthday party of a celebrity hairstylist looking like this.

Debbie on

Who cares???? No news today People?

Ryan on

Maybe she should stop telling woman how breastfeeding their children should be the law, and pay attention to her husbands ridiculous appearance. Of course she was probably to busy looking for a new bale of hay to eat….

Ick on

Oh come on! He looks ridiculous.

Katia on

Bad hair day, for sure! I hope he didn’t PAY for that!

Smithy on

Wow. He looks like a moron. Way to go Hiselle….your man looks like a dummy.

It’s not as bad a a it looks in this picture- but it’s still not good. There are better pics on twitter. Think less Mohawk and more mountain range on top of his head. The worse part of the pic you can’t see- he’s wearing RED pants! It was his derby outfit- red pants, white blazer and that wife in gold le may. They look like they dressed for Halloween!

Jay on

This is another case of a woman ruining a man. Tom get your balls out if her purse.

gross on

These 2 have the longest faces I’ve ever seen

K.B. on

It just proves what I’ve always suspected: a good haircut can make or break a guy’s look, no matter how good looking he is. That … is a tragedy.

Denise on

So we’re back to another one of Tom Brady’s awful haircuts? Seriously, this guy has the worst taste in hair. Let’s hope he’ll never be involved in either of his sons haircuts.

Pandora on

He’s such a butt munch….can’t stand him or his goofy wife!

pinky on

He looks like a moron! Ever since he married HER he’s been making a complete fool of himself.

Dee on

He looks like a feminine hygiene product….because he IS one, as well as being a cheater.
He and Giselle (giraffe with breasts) are perfect for one another.

Maureen Brown on

He looks ridiculous!

TysMom on

They both look ridiculous. Tom, you aren’t 15 and your clothes don’t match. And your wife needs to wash the greasy looking hair.

Sadie on

Wow. My Tom Brady crush is officially over forever. Not sexy at all.

Beth McFarland on

Thank God for helmets but it isn’t his hair that’s taters on or off the field. Come on Tom-get that one last ring dude!!!!

Cindy Daley on

Ever since this woman clawed her way into his life it has been downhill on and off the field. She is useless and ugly and I wish she would just disappear. Tom get your manhood back PLEASE before the season starts!!
