When I think about Willie Nelson, two things pop into my mind right away: marijuana, of course, and those two long gray braids of hair that he has always sported. Well, now he’s gone and done it — he got a haircut.
According to the Yahoo! Music Blog, Nelson decided it was time to lost his trademark hair because of the constant maintenance and upkeep it was requiring. Yes, it can be difficult, Willie. Also, I might add that summer time often induces hair cuts. When you’re in 90 degree heat, you don’t want to deal with all that hair sticking to the back of your neck.
So, that being said, I dedicate this post to the memory of those long gray locks. I guess the day finally came when the ultimate hippie had to cut his hair.
