Tom Brady Debuts New Do at the Met Gala

What can steal a spotlight from Mary-Kate Olsen, Kanye West and Tim Tebow? Tom Brady‘s hair. The football star debuted yet another different do at Monday night’s Met Gala in New York, a freshly slicked semi faux hawk that slanted to the right.

At last year’s Gala, Brady was still working his extra-long locks — and his wife, Gisele Bündchen, was happy with the look. “That’s his choice,” she told reporters at the time. “He does what he wants. I love him no matter what — short, bald, fat. It’s all good.”

In the months following, the Patriots quarterback grew his hair even longer — “I don’t take it too seriously,” he told WWD of his mop — then chopped it in September.

At this point, Brady’s sported every hairstyle from a Bieber swoosh to a ponytail to a shag — basically, we’re used to the changes — but this look definitely gives us pause. What do you think? Tell us: Are you a fan of Brady’s new hairstyle?

OMG he is smoking HOT

Alayna on

He looks like a really old version of Justin Bieber in this picture. And by the way, I think the Cow lick hair-do kinda looks weird.

Julie on

He would look beautiful even without hair <3

ivy on

Geesh Tom, the sports radio callers in Boston are going to kill you for this one. I can only imagine what will be said. Personaly, I could care less. As long as you brings your A game to the field this coming season, your hair can do wahtever.

Gail Hoover on

Don’t like it at all, even liked the long hair better!

Kim on

That looks absolutely ridiculous.

Mary on

Tom…get to a barbershop…QUICKLY! Leave the “sylists” to your wife.

nacho on

THis man has turned into such a d-bag – his wife carries his balls in one of her $8,000 handbags and then ends up carrying them around for her!

Taylor on

He looks like Alfalfa now from the Little Rascals! Hilarious.

Judy on

what is he – 12?

nice on

He is sexy whatever he does

Huh?? on

Looks like he put too much hair spray in it and a might wind came and blew it up and well, it didn’t come down. Sad.

christa on

He thinks he is still 16 years old. Giselle, really has him under her thumb.

Mary on

so handsome

Jackie on

I like the slick look but the shape of this style is odd … either way he is HOT. Love the navy suit jacket!!

Jon on

I don’t really care how his hair looks, period, it’s fine!

mrsmass on

oh i get it, he let his kid do his hair. it looks absurd.

Elliott on

i don’t cares his hair….. just gorgeous!

ana on

he looks like Woody Woodpecker!!!

lisa on

wtf? did he even look in a mirror?

sue on

great to see he got rid of his girl locks

charby on

LOL!!

... on

Lame.

ErinTippin on

The hair doesn’t bother me near as much as the stubble on his face! For Pete’s sake, it’s a black tie affair! Shave!!!

ok on

looks hot

Cate on

Shades of ‘There’s Something About Mary’ I’d say. He’s still hot but the hair ~ not so much

Evan on

Well I think he tried something edgy/special/different for the Gala; not expecting it to be a new style for everyday.

Melissa on

He is a true talent, a class act and super hot no matter what his hair looks like! Haters are just jealous :P

amber on

I liked him so much better before he was with Gisele.

NY on

Envy Beckham much? What a tool

Leah on

….add this to the list of reasons he will NEVER win another Super Bowl.

stef24 on

Isn’t it time for him to realize he is completely whipped? She has made him into such a laughing stock, it’s ridiculous! Comments about his other son, comments about his teammates, his hair like this, etc…Oh Tom…you’re pathetic.

kitty62862 on

Dude could shave his head, tattoo his skull, dress in a garbage bag, and he’d still be hot.

It’s just reality.

Lily on

He is one handsome sexy guy….the hair is not my favorite

whocares on

He’s got issues if he looked in the mirror and said “Oh yeah, I look good.” Tool.

lisa on

Can’t stand him. So no matter what hairdo he has I say YUCK!! Go Giants!

Natalie on

Sorry dude, that hairstyle is not working in your favor.

stanhope on

He is rich, bored, and a back-up QB at UM. What do you expect?

on

Gets more press for his hair than his game. Hmmmmmm

Mary on

I agree with his wife..Tom looks great, no matter what. I think he’s gone via Dave Beckham….yum…

kath on

Reminds me of Ace Ventura

lia on

He’s Gisele’s toy, she tells him how to dress and how to look. This look doesn’t look good….

Mel on

EW

Lilly on

I hope when he gets to training camp his receivers hold him down and shave his head. He looks and acts ridiculous.

ivy on

Hey, stanhope…you neglected to mention that he has three Superbowl rings. Not bad for the back-up QB at Michigan. He is rich for sure..well earned and I seriously doubt he is bored.
It was an edgy fashion event…he was just dereesing for the evening.

bh on

Hey Tom, why aren’t you practicing football instead of modeling?

Donna on

YUCK!

sarge89 on

Pretty Boy Brady!

amy on

Good grief,why does Tom Brady’s hair get so much press?

mlsinclair on

I don’t like it at all. Looks like he has a pointed head! And didn’t Beckham try something similar?

Htown on

Look, it’s Astro Boy!

Michaele on

Yeah Alayna this is more for Justin B. Tom is good looking, but I think he is too old for this type of style. Just saying….

patty on

tom you look like a cross between woody woodpecker and an ass clown…OMG

sunshine on

After towel drying, I think he forgot to comb the one side. ?

lynn on

what a ridiculous look for a grown man!!!

Dee Dee on

How very, “Something About Mary…”

TJ on

WTH?! Doesn’t he have a mirror?

Barbara on

That’s not a new “do”–he and his wife were just doing the wild thing in the back of the limo on the way to the Met and his hair got messed up!

None of Your Busniess on

Gee now that’s breaking news PEOPLE MAGAZINE!

Come on, get real!

Sandra Verrier on

Not really, it’s kind of wierd. Looks like he only combed the left side of his head!

tiffany on

What the heck happened to his hair? He is very fortunate his face is absolutely gorgeous!

Rolyat on

He’s a big Queen!

notsosure on

looks like vanilla ice, but not pulling it off. d o u c h e! Don’t like him.

Tina on

He can’t be serious. Maybe he was laying down. There has to be an explanation for a grown man coming out of the house like that.

Cyndy on

You are so gorgeous, but why the throwback unappealing hair-do? Don’t try so hard. Just shower and go. No muss is needed.

Linda on

Hairdo is not good…..he is a good lookin’ guy who is stuck on himself!

Debbie on

Looks like a mini tornado landed on his head.

tori on

Thumbs down,he looks ridiculous!

Anon on

I don’t care what’s on his head, that man is so gorgeous.

Atrocia on

His hair looks ridiculous!!! Plus he is a cheating D-bag. No respect for this man.

Melanie on

put a helmet on please

Aurora on

Ridiculous – he’s trying to look like something he’s not! He’s a good looking guy – but seriously – he looks like something from outer space.

B on

He looks like Ed Grimly (as played by Martin Short) on the old SNL skit….(I must say)

davon on

thats my boy patriots all day every day

boohoobytch on

this is why his game is “off”, dude thinks he’s a model

Sandy on

OMG!!! Hid-e-ous!!!

kk on

His hairstyle confuses me

Jamie on

He looks ridiculous!!!!

Jane on

Why is he always trying so hard to fight the pretty?

wallybare on

Donna on

He looks ridiculous. He should stop trying to look like David Beckham, cause he can’t pull it off.

rubblebubblecake on

How old is this guy? A little too old to be having styles you would see on a 20 year old. By the way, he’s got a huge head, and this hair style only makes it look larger (if that’s even possible). Frankenstein head!!

Sarah on

This hairstyle looks like he just got a swirly.

Karen on

Hmmmm, there’s something about Tom!!!

Denise on

Can we say GUMBY!!!!

Beryl on

He is a tool and should try using one on his hair

tshape on

he is way too hot to be sportin’ a Dennis-the-Menace do. gawd.

Hmmm on

Is one of his eyes crooked? I see some wall-eye going on here…

jonny on

Nope

Austyn on

David Beckham can pull this off. Tom Brady not so much

EL on

Yikes!

Pat on

He is one good looking man. Get rid of the “kid” hair, and use a grown-up style to go with those handsome looks!!!!

Whatever on

He looks ridiculous and needs to reclaim his balls from his wife. What a d@uchewaffle.

Rosewillow on

Oh please. This guy is so lame. His hair looks like a 5th grader got into daddy’s hair gel.

It looks ridiculous – like a Kewpi doll. And his wife looked like a man in drag at the Met event. Shudder.

debra on

I don’t care what his hair looks like. He could color it different colors. He just needs to throw completions, and touchdowns. Thats what New England Fans care about.

slickteig on

Yuck, how goofy is that….sorry it looks like a little boy “trying ” fix his hair w/ water and a comb, hope he didn’t pay much for that mess. Get a new stylist, or wife or whoever did that look…

Kathleen on

New hair makes him look like Gumby!

Aska Asha on

All I can say is hahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha Fire your hairdresser!

Hey, Tom! Vanilla Ice called….he wants his hair back from 1991!

Seriously. You are married to a model. Gee wiz look a little more apealing please.

JHK200 on

I like Brady’s hair style for the Met Gala. I doubt he is going to wear it this way all the time but for this night I thought it perfect. He could never look bad.

else.
