Pigtails are gone: Willie Nelson cuts his hair

May 27, 2010


— Country music fans have come to expect a little eccentricity from legendary crooner Willie Nelson, but he pulled off a real shocker this time: He cut his hair.

“Oh Noooooo!,” wrote one fan who saw a picture of Nelson’s new do on the website of Nashville television and radio personality Jimmy Carter.

Nelson’s waist-deep, reddish pigtails have long been one of the singer-songwriter’s signature features. But spokeswoman Elaine Schock said Nelson, who’s been hanging loose in Hawaii, got his hair cut in the past couple of weeks.

Schock said the Texas-born performer didn’t make a big fuss about the makeover and thought he might have grown tired of dealing with long locks.

Well, not everyone is here on earth for your viewing pleasure, Pywaket. People should wear their hair the way they want. I suppose you are tired of all of the old people who refuse to get a face lift or inject poison into their faces, so you don't have to look at their wrinkles too. Image is everything to people like you, isn't it?

Pigtails and ponytails on guys........ just....... ......a sign of the times, I guess.

Why don't guys with long hair put it up in a bun as well??

Our country is a great place; you have the right to do whatever you want with your hair and I have the right to roll my eyes and shake my head.
