Has there been a more topsy-turvy roller coaster than the one Andy Murray fans have had to deal with over the years with his plethora of hairdos? Andy revealed some insight to his new clean-cut look, saying the tennis industry is behind it. He told Daily Mail:
“I liked that haircut but a lot of people don’t like it. They think that it’s messy and doesn’t look good so I’m not allowed to cut my hair like that unfortunately anymore. The tennis industry doesn’t like that sort of hair. They just like the standard short back and sides.”
Andy’s clean-cut look hair been widely praised by many.
But Andy added, “When I finish playing I will have it done for sure.” Hmm… we’ll see what his friends and family have to say about that, considering this is what you find when you Google “Andy Murray hair”:
