Tom Brady's newest hairstyle: the Fauxhawk

Tom Brady and wife Gisele Bundchen attended a gala at the Metropolitan Museum of Art on Monday. And there's no telling if he was trying to make some abstractionist statement, but the Patriots quarterback showed up to the event rocking a fauxhawk.

It's not a look I would try to pull off. And frankly, it's not a look that you should try to pull off either, but that's because neither of us is Tom Brady.

Brady, mind you, is not afraid to try different things with his hair.

Despite rumors that Brady was going bald (which inevitably led to snarky bloggers photoshopping random wigs on Brady's head), he sported some pretty long locks for a while before trimming his 'do in September of 2011.

The longer hairstyle led to some awkward moments: Randy Moss reportedly told Brady he had hair like a girl during a reported locker-room fight and Brady was filmed dancing in Rio with a ponytail. Oh, and Justin Bieber called Brady out during a freestyle rap.

The latter is infinitely more embarrassing, but it can't be as bad as being spotted rocking a fauxhawk, right? Well, kind of. See, here's the thing: Brady does weird things with his hair because his SUPERMODEL WIFE convinces him to do that. And because he's the quarterback of the New England Patriots and that means that, regardless of what us average Joes think, he's pretty much allowed to do whatever he wants with his hair.
