For a man who's job it is to tackle people while wearing a helmet, Tom Brady's hair choices tend to cause quite a stir. The 2011 gym session that had the sweaty NFL quarterback pull back his long hair made it into the man bun history books, and now Gisele Bündchen's husband is setting the stage for its eminent return.
In a recent interview with Yahoo Style, the face of Tag Heuer reveals that he is growing out his hair once again. This means that he'll inevitably have to wrap it into a small sphere just like he did almost five years ago.
The football player thought long and hard about the decision. He told Yahoo Style, "I think I'm going back to some long hair," adding, "You know, screw it." When asked about his level of dedication to fashion, the Patriot's player responded, "I do pay attention to fashion. I like clothes and I like watches." He also reveals, "I pick out my own clothes," which pretty much separates the men from the boys in the world of football and fashion.
