Shaun White Lops Off His Long Locks for Charity

Shaun White Haircut

From the wrong side of the law to the right side of his heart.

Olympic snowboarder Shaun White chopped off his famed long locks on Tuesday, donating several inches of his red hair to Locks of Love and documenting the process on camera.

“I’ve been thinking about this one for a while,” he says nervously in the video below. “But it’s for a good cause so I want to do it. Somebody needs it more than I do.”

After one last headbang, White, who jokes he’s “panicking” throughout the clip, lets his barber cut off his whole ponytail, then goes even shorter for the first time “in forever,” he shares.

After the shock wears off, though, White seems to be happy with his new ‘do. “I like it, it looks good,” he says. We’ll be interested to see if the star keeps his short hair — or grows it back out for the 2014 Olympics. Tell us: Do you prefer White with short or long hair?

His attractiveness level is now off the charts. I almost didn’t recognize him without his curly hair. It’s awesome that’s he’s doing it for a “good” cause (Locks of Love isn’t the best to donate hair to, I’ve donated hair multiple times) however, it looks just a tad too short which means it’ll probably just be thrown away :/
