R.I.P. Shag: Tom Brady Cuts His Hair

The most talked about hairstyle in football is no more.

Days after telling the press he doesn’t take his hair “too seriously,” Tom Brady is creating “buzz,” showing up to a press conference Wednesday without those famous long locks. Gone was his much-discussed shoulder-length do, and in its place, a freshly cropped cut, which Brady kept concealed underneath a baseball cap.

The model athlete has caused quite a stir in recent years with his ever-changing hair. He turned heads everywhere with a short cut before experimenting with his controversial Bieber-esque swoop. Then, he took things to new lengths by growing it longer and eventually sporting a ponytail that had sports fans — and Brady fans — commenting up a storm.

Perhaps wife Gisele Bündchen, who has weighed in on his hair in the past, had something to do with his newly shorn locks, or maybe Brady took notice of the recent Pert Plus Facebook poll about him, where 63 percent of fans said they preferred him with short hair (they also said he has the best hair of any quarterback in the NFL). Either way, it’s time to say R.I.P. to those once-coveted long locks. Tell us: How do you prefer Brady’s hair?

Tom looks great with his shorter hair! It was ok long, but short looks so much better on him. Brings out those beautiful baby blue eyes more!
