Did Carlos Beltran Paint Fake Hair Onto His Head?

Carlos Beltran's hair is...questionable.

It looks like Carlos Betran got a Carlos Boozer haircut.

Photos of the Texas Rangers' power hitter's freshly-painted scalp are going viral on Twitter today.

It's an interesting look, to say the least.

Apparently that's the look for guys named "Carlos."

Boozer later explained what happened with his hair, admitting he'd made a big mistake.

From a Highly Questionable interview back in 2015:

Dan Le Batard: "What was going on with your hair that day?"

Boozer: "Oh man. Man, listen, so ... truth be told, as you can tell, I started losing my hair a little bit..."

Bomani: "I know the struggle. I'm with you."

Boozer: "...they came out with this -- it's like a hair dye, whatever, for men called the 'bigen.' Well, I had one guy that was like, 'Yo, have you ever thought about growing your hair out?' And I was like, yeah, I was thinking about it, until I saw some of these little bald spots on my head. So, I was like, you know, I just cut my hair off. And so he was telling me that he could -- you know, 'grow your hair out, I could cover it up a little bit, and make it look like you got a regular haircut.' So I tried it, and he just made myself look like shoe polish up there ... this is like five years later, and I'm still hearing about it."

Bomani: "Oh yeah! You're gonna hear about it till the end!"

Boozer: "I still get this!"

Bomani: "We've been sitting here for 20 minutes trying to figure out how to work it in!

[Boozer laughs]

Bomani: "You know, we didn't want to hurt your feelings! But, you know, it was a thing!"

Beltran has some explaining to do.
