We all remember the drekitudinous 'do Nigel Barker decided to debut at New York Fashion Week this year (ie., a weird, poufy fro in lieu of his usual strikingly handsome bald dome). Even fellow ANTM judge Miss Jay sounded off on how awful the typically dreamy noted fashion photographer looked with hair. Luckily, Nigel shaved it just in time for ANTM taping, so our eyes wouldn't be offended at panel every week. But why did he decide to switch it up in a clear styling faux pas? Chalk it up to Baby Barker.

In a recent interview with Wetpaint, Nigel revealed that his daughter,  Jasmine, playfully joked that daddy was going "bald" (she would say "Dada no hair!") which was a swift kick to Nigel's ego. In an effort to prove to his darling daughter that daddy was completely capable of growing a luscious mane of dark curly locks, he quit shaving his head. Okay, Nigel. You can grow your own hair. We believe you. Now, please never do that again.

It is sort of nice to know, though, that guys freak out about their looks just as quickly as a girl flies into a freak-out if someone touches an insecure nerve.
