Steve Nash's hair

I'm not much of a basketball fan (or a sports fan for that matter), but one can't escape Steve Nash in the media - especially since Canadians have embraced him as embodying everything that is nice about this country (including, of course, the fact that he fled to the U.S. to make a living). Nash signed a six-year, $65.6 million contract - so why can't the guy get a decent hair cut? Everytime I see him on a TV commercial, I wonder "What's that high-school dropout who pumps gas up at the ESSO station on highway 7 doing on TV?" He's ranked 46th in the NBA in terms of salary - he can't drop ten bucks at the Superclips in Phoenix?
