Jayson Tatum's hairline drawing national media attention
 

 

But with all due respect to his basketball excellence, we’re here to talk about his hair game.

Tatum’s hairline — meticulously crafted by a gloved barber wielding an Andis Professional Styliner II trimmer like a paintbrush on a canvas — is glorious.

It’s become a popular discussion topic on social media whenever the Celtics play on national television.




It’s so admired that, within the Celtics’ locker room, it has been identified as a landmark for preservation.

“I think he has great hair. I think he gets his hair cut too much, my personal opinion,” forward Marcus Morris said. “When it comes to having a strong hairline, you can’t let people take it back … I tell him all the time.”

Tatum remains undeterred by his veteran teammate.

“I know!” Tatum said of Morris’s crusade on behalf of his hairline, “but I gotta look good. I told him I gotta get a haircut.”

Thankfully for fans of fades, Tatum does his best to guard his hairline from trimmers with ill intentions. Though he lives and works in Boston, Tatum, a St. Louis native, tries to meet up with the barber from his hometown who has been shaping him up for eight years.

“He’s very picky. I try to keep him as fresh as I can,” Julius Gutierrez said in a phone interview. “For him, it’s his hair and he values that. He wants [his hair] looking like draft day every day.”

While the topic of hairlines may seem frivolous to some, it matters to many men, said Gutierrez, 44, who has been cutting hair for over half of his life.

“It’s the first thing people see, your smile and your hairline, especially in the urban community. It’s just something about it,” Gutierrez said. “You have a certain swag with it … It just gives you this certain confidence.”

Tatum was thankful that Boston drew the Milwaukee Bucks in the first round of the playoffs — not only because the matchup ultimately favored the Celtics, who won in seven games, but because St. Louis is a breezy, one-hour, five-minute flight away. Gutierrez and his clippers made two trips to Milwaukee during the series.

“I usually fly him out when I’m on the road, somewhere close to St. Louis. He’ll cut me up,” Tatum said. “So people usually notice after he cuts my head.”

Terry Rozier, another young Celtics guard having a breakthrough in these playoffs, said he understands.

“It’s like everything,” Rozier said before Game 1. “You know you’re going to be on TV. You got to make sure that hairline is looking right, for sure.”

He then added: “I might go see my barber after this.”


Cavaliers guard Jordan Clarkson, another candidate for sharpest hairline in the NBA, said he gets it, too.

"Everybody wants to have that good hairline. It makes you look good … I’m going to be young forever. Knock on wood,” said Clarkson, reaching down to tap the TD Garden Arena court. “But my hairline is going to be like this forever, ya feel me?”


Ah, so innocent. And yet so unaware that one day Father Time will come brandishing a pair of his own clippers. A hairline can recede with age, or due to genes, and even the best player of this generation isn’t safe from nature’s shears.

“LeBron!” one Celtics fan called out to the 33-year-old James during Cleveland’s Game 1 loss. “You’re fading like your hairline, boy!”

By all means, prop the man for it. do your thing. Maybe it's not in me to be complimenting men on their features

that's a clean lineup/cut and that's a beautiful hairline are 2 different things IMO
