VIDEO: Shaun White Cuts Hair

Snowboarder lops trademark locks!

Get ready, this rock star snowboarder is about to “mind freak” you.

Shaun White, also known as the “Flying Tomato” thanks to his ruby red signature locks, has cut his hair (and, naturally, has also recorded it on his GoPro and put it on YouTube and Facebook). Even in spite of plans to donate his shiny tresses to Locks for Love, the charity best known for creating wigs for sick children, the shear seems to freak White out more than any ride ever has. “I’m still panicking,” he laughs, nervously.

But, his resolve held strong.  

"I've been thinking about this one for a while, but it's for a good cause, so I'm going to do it," he says. "Somebody needs it more than I do."

Now, the ultimate question: Will White’s snowboarding power disappear with his curls? And one day, will a small child with a newly-received wig suddenly become a 2014 Olympic hopeful? “It’s only hair,” Samson…I mean, Shaun claims, but only time will tell.
