Oakland may not be known for a particular hairstyle, but we have had people who are known for their hair. List below:


Sports Figures

Derek Norris (former A's player)

Coco Crisp- current A's center fielder. Goes back and forth between very little hair, braids and a fro. In this video the fro defeats the helmet many many times. The fro has become such a symbol that people often wear cardboard cutouts of the fro above their heads during games in support of the A's.

Ben Davidson - Played for the Oakland Raiders from 1964-1971. He was also in several movies [including Conan the Barbarian], tv shows, and commerials [including Miller Lite].
