But there was something new about Puig on Sunday ... something visually different going on with his head. I'm talking about his flashy new blonde mohawk. It's a look:

Puig's no stranger to this look, as he previously dyed his hair blonde and shaped it into a mohawk during the 2017 World Series, making sure to dye it blue accordingly:
After his homer Sunday, Puig celebrated with his teammates in the Reds dugout before rubbing his new haircut and staring into the camera and wishing his mom a happy Mother's Day.
After the game, Bumgarner fired off a quick answer when asked about Puig's homer, as reported by MLB.com's Maria Guardado:
“He’s a quick study,” Bumgarner said. “It only took him seven years to learn how to hit that pitch.”
As for Puig's haircut, explained his new look to MLB.com's Mark Sheldon postgame, noting that he took part of his inspiration from
"Suárez had his hair like that," Puig said. "
And his teammates' reaction to his hair:
“Peraza is a little gray. Mine is a little blonde. He doesn’t have the hair that looks good like me. But his is pretty.”
How does Puig think his new 'do looks?
"I don’t care how it looks. I do it for my teammates. If I say something and I promise something, I come through. That’s the reason I have my hair like that because I said if I have two hits, I’m going to do it. Now here I am."
