What is Behind Andy Roddick's Mohawk?

Tennis star Andy Roddick is making headlines, but unfortunately, not for his tennis game. The 29-year old athlete is garnering attention for his new haircut - a mohawk! 

When asked about his decision to cut his hair, he replied: "I'm pretty sure I only have a year or two left with hair, so I decided to have fun with it while I did." While Roddick may seem young to be facing hair loss, it isn't uncommon. Nearly 30 percent of men experience some degree of hair loss in their 30s and that number increases to 40 percent as men enter their 40s.

Considering his age, Roddick might want to consider a proactive hair regimen of FDA-approved Propecia or Rogaine, which could help prevent or slow down the progression of hair loss.
