Multiple Years / Andre Agassi and the Wig
Andre Agassi burst upon the pro tennis scene in the late 1980s. His rebel style--plus the fact that he was incredibly talented--won him a lot of youthful fans. A big part of his image was his long locks of hair. To the surprise of many, Agassi revealed in Open, his 2009 autobiography, that his famous hair was actually a wig. Agassi started to lose his hair in 1987 at age 17 and began wearing a hairpiece during his matches. (Agassi's rug disintegrated the night before he was to play in the 1990 French Open final versus Andres Gomez. He repaired it with bobby pins, but was so worried about it coming apart that he lost the match--one he probably should have won.) In 1995, his fiancee Brooke Shields convinced him to go with the sheared look he wore until he retired in 2006 and continues to have to this day.
