This blog topic came to me in a dream last night. I swear. Eric Stark, a 49ers.com contributor, wanted me to mention that to start this post. So I've done that.
Back to the blog, I thought about the best hairstyles in team history and since I grew up watching the team and have worked here for seven seasons, why not look at some of the most memorable hair moments in Niners history?
This is, after all, the team's lifestyle blog.
So here's a top-20 list for you to enjoy. And please, if you have any additions let us know in the comments section below.
- ZAK KEASY
Undrafted fullback out of Princeton in 2005, played three seasons with the Niners from 2005-08.
- Anthony Dixon as Simon Phoenix
Former 49ers running back Anthony Dixon used the 2011 season to experiment with his hairstyle. This version remined me of Wesley Snipes in *Demolition Man. *Dixon signed with the Buffalo Bills as a free agent this offseason.
- Dominique Zeigler Goes Old-School
The former Niners wideout (2007-11) is now a coaching assistant at his alma mater, Baylor University.
- Gene Washington
The Niners wideout from 1969-77 definitely had his own style.
- Randy Cross
Business up front, party in the back.
- Dexter Carter
One of many quality flat-top haircuts from the mid-90s. Carter had two stints with the Niners (1990-94 and 1995-96).
- Dan Bunz
Silky smooth locks for the Niners linebacker who is more remembered for his third-and-goal tackle in Super Bowl XVI.
- Joe Looney, circa 2012
Joe has since cut his hair off, but he did show up to training camp like this two years ago.
- Eric Heitmann
A seventh-round pick in '02, Heitmann played until a neck injury ended his career in 2011.
- This Fan
Thanks to an awesome barber.
- Vernon Davis' Rookie Year
The first-round draft pick in '06 was easy to see on the field.
- Kap's Customs
Kap's custom hair design is worthy of a top-10 spot.
- Coach Rathman
The former Niners fullback is still all business as the team's running backs coach.
- Mike Iupati's Tribute
It's breast cancer awareness month, so this 2013 photo is a perfect tribute to include.
- Cowboy's Mohawk
Justin Smith rocked this custom haircut for a big win over Washington on "Monday Night Football" last season.
- G.O.A.T. from the 80s
Jerry Rice's early hairstyle had quite the reputation early in his career.
- Joe Cool's Golden Locks
Joe Montana, feathered and lethal.
- Jerry's 2000 Look
The best wide receiver in NFL history left the 49ers with a new-look.
- Keith Lewis
I might be on an island with this one, but this hairstyle was in a world of its own. The former Niners safety from 2004-08 showed up for "Monday Night Football" in 2007 with this awesome 'do.
