During his days on the D.C. Council, Harold Brazil sometimes used fashion changes to make statements on various legislative matters.

In 2002, when the city faced a tight budget, Brazil shaved his trademark mustache as a sign of austerity. He wore a red Nationals baseball cap during key moments of the baseball stadium debate. After he left the council, a more relaxed Brazil sported a beard for a short time.

Now Brazil is showing off his straight-hair look. The usually curly-headed Brazil’s tresses are now tight to his head and sweep back—-think Al Sharpton with a short haircut. LL noticed Brazil’s new ’do Thursday, when the lobbyist was making his rounds at the John A. Wilson Building. (Unfortunately, he was not toting a camera at the time.)

But Brazil must have been too busy to comment on his latest fashion statement. LL attempted to engage him in conversation on two occasions, but he refused to acknowledge LL’s existence.
