Out of the corner of the eye it hits you. Flowing like a beautiful waterfall of perfection. Hair that looks so thick and soft it would make anyone blush, with a shine only possible in a shampoo commercial. Nathan Adrian’s hair is impossible to stop watching.


Adrian knows he’s got it, so he flaunts it. This is a man who knows how to use a leave-in conditioner. The biggest shame is that he deprived the world of it for so long.

This was his hair just a year ago. Cut down before it had a chance to shine.

Since those dark days he’s done away with the fuzzy hedgehog look, and instead let his hair flourish and grow. It’s beautiful to behold.

Sometimes he wears his headband high, causing it to drop vertically.

Die-hard Mountaineers fans have had the luxury of appreciating this all season long, but for most of us this is the first time we’ve seen the flowing follicles in action. Try to take your eyes off them, you can’t.
