Photo: What do Pablo Mastroeni and Marlon Hairston have in common?

When the Colorado Rapids drafted Marlon Hairston with the 12th pick in the 2014 MLS SuperDraft, the former Louisville midfielder took to the stage rocking a snazzy bowtie and a hairstyle that should be familiar to Rapids fans.

Yes, those locks are reminicent of Pablo Mastroeni when he joined the club in 2002. Hairston is also a holding midfielder, a role that earned Mastroeni numerous accolades during his playing days. Intrestingly enough, Mastroeni was sitting at Colorado's draft table - as Special Assistant to the Technical Director - the day Hairston became a Rapid, and then talked about what the club saw in the 19-year old (WATCH).

Only one question remains. Who rocked the locks best?
