What do you think of Bryce Harper's new haircut and why does it belong in a museum?

We here at Cut4 aren't exactly shy about our thoughts on hairdos and facial-hair decisions across Major League Baseball: Basically, there's no such thing as too much of a good thing.

While Bruce Sutter and Sal Fasano are no longer leading the league in terms of natural cranial accessories, every so often an up-and-coming star will rise to the occasion and let the flow go.

With Spring Training at the midway point, we've come to the realization that it's finally time to lay down some truth: Bryce Harper's hair belongs in a museum.

Scientifically speaking, Harper's current follicular style registers a 6.3 on the Hank-From-Breaking-Bad-to-Tom-Hanks-in-Castaway Scale (trademark pending).

And the best part is that it's so versatile. He's got the trendy man bun off the field and he's not shy about flaunting the flow on it. Every time he takes more than six and a half steps at full speed, his hat or helmet flies off and opponents and spectators alike are transfixed by its glory.

Seriously, it's been on display all spring:

And -- as if that wasn't enough -- he was recently the focus of a style spread in Seven magazine. 

Are you taking notes, pretty much every player in baseball? Beard > no beard. Flow > no flow. Learn it, know it, live it.
