For Julian Edelman, hair today, gone tomorrow

March 1, 2017 GMT

New England Patriots star Julian Edelman is playing it smooth these days, especially since shaving off his super bushy beard. The 30-year-old wide receiver looked like Tormund Giantsbane as the Pats edged closer to Super Bowl LI victory, but Edelman finally bid his facial tumbleweed adieu before Monday night’s Celtics game, posting the trim-mendous job to Instagram: “officially the offseason boyssss thanks @piniandco.” That’s the Pini Swissa Salon, FYI.

RETRO-NO: Speaking of hair, and we were, Pats QB Tom Brady certainly went through a lot of shampoo back in the day. A nostalgic No. 12 dug up an old high school yearbook photo of himself and — bravely we might add — posted it to his Instagram account. Picture an artfully arranged pile of squid ink pasta on a baby-faced Brady. His caption: “Time to bring it back?? #hairgoals” makes us wonder if he bonked his noggin in that little ski oopsie last week.
