HAIR WE GO!
Fyfe’s new do
It is the most talked about hairdo in WA football — or at least, it was. Fremantle Dockers captain Nat Fyfe has lost his luscious locks, leaving cross-town rival Nic Naitanui as the undisputed king of out-there hair. Fyfe’s hairstyles have attracted attention on the field and on the catwalk, most notably the man bun that emerged in 2016. It was a natural evolution for a player admired for his style and fashion sense, as well as ability. The morning after winning the 2015 Brownlow Medal, the on-baller acknowledged his hair had gained its own following.
“I don’t own the hair any more. It’s the people’s hair,” Fyfe said.
In November, he returned to training with a more subdued style. He said it had been a tough decision to lop the top knot.
“I got a bit of feedback from Aaron Sandilands over the last year or so,” Fyfe said. Initial reaction to his new ’do, which looked at training yesterday to be even shorter, has been mixed.
Fyfe has been installed as a $5.50 Brownlow Medal favourite.
Dockers fans will hope that like his no-nonsense haircut, the skipper means business in 2019.
Tight and tousled, the hairstyles that became “the people’s hair”.
