When hunky New England Patriots quarterback Tom Brady turned up courtside at the NBA finals sporting long shaggy layers and heavy, side-swept bangs, stylists in Beantown called a time out.

Was Mr. Gisele Bündchen's new 'do shear genius or a Justin Bieber copycat style foul?

And why would the handsome king of Patriots' nation mess with his Boston proper style, especially since his usually conservative short cuts show off his chiseled good looks?

Brady's longer locks had some Boston stylists suggesting the 32-year-old jock may want to hide under his Patriots' helmet until someone chips into those bangs a bit.

"I think the Justin Bieber look is a little too young for him," Sandy Poirier of South Boston's Shag Salon told the Boston Herald. Poirier recommended Brady taper the cut to make it more age appropriate. "It should be a little more textured, layered, a little more shaped," she said.

Back Bay, Boston, stylist Patrice Vinci said she preferred Brady's hair much shorter, but added that the "California Beach Boy" style was fine for summer. Vinci also speculated Brady's supermodel wife probably had some influence on his longer, sun-kissed tresses.

Celebrity stylist Kent Newton suggested Brady's off-season locks are actually more Beatles than Bieber but wasn't offended.

Newton told the newspaper, "He has a ton of hair. I think he looks pretty good."
