Encyclopedia > Tomahawk Buzzcut

The "Tomahawk Buzzcut" is a shaving of the Atlanta Braves tomahawk logo and/or the word "Braves" into the hair of the back or side of a usually male head. It was an early 1990's fad of Atlanta Braves fans. The Braves' fans are well-known for their die-hard attitude as well as their creative ways of showing their attitude. Pioneered by braves backup shortstop Rafael Belliard during the Braves heyday of the early- to mid-1990s, the Tomahawk Buzzcut became a staple of Atlanta Braves culture, known as "Braves Fever".
