Hideki Kamiya then:
I don't know when the then is from, but it was definitely before Bayonetta and Okami. I'm also pretty sure Kamiya had the tough guy look during Viewtiful Joe.
Not sure how he looked during Resident Evil 2 or Devil May Cry, but that was when he had only two triple A titles under his belt, so who was paying attention to his hair then?
Kamiya isn't the only game designer to undergo an image reset. See Hachimaki for then and now pics for Yakuza director Toshihiro Nagoshi and Kamiya arch rival Tomonobu Itagaki.
