Baseball has hit the pause button and so have barbershops. With that in mind, let’s look back at some of the craziest hairstyles in Cincinnati Reds history.

With the coronavirus pandemic putting a halt to baseball, players have had to stay off the field. While fans are surely missing seeing their favorite players perform, they’re likely missing their favorite barber as well. With barbershops currently closed and shaggy heads aplenty throughout the country, let’s look back at some of the craziest hairstyles in Cincinnati Reds history.

Baseball fans have seen a lot of crazy hairstyles over the years. Who could forget Coco Crisp’s patch-mullet while playing for the Oakland Athletics. Former Reds pitcher Bronson Arroyo donned the tight cornrows during his days with the Boston Red Sox. And who could forget John Kruk’s mullet?

To be sure, there’s been no shortage of wild and crazy hairstyles over the years. Last season, we saw José Iglesias transform his hair color after promising to do so if he homered in a game. The slick-fielding shortstop came through with the color purple embedded atop his head.

While ones hairstyle is their choice and oftentimes subjective, there are a few players throughout the history of the Cincinnati Reds that stick out. Whether is was Jeff Brantley’s mullet or Pete Rose’s bowl-cut, some of the best players in Reds history might want to rethink some of their hairstyles. Let’s see who made the list, shall we?
