After months of growing it out, Russell Wilson headed to the barber shop Thursday to get his hair cut.

Most recently, the man who has captured Seattle’s heart was asked about his lovely locks at Super Bowl media day.

“When I was in 11th grade, we won the state championship. I had my hair grown out,” Wilson said. “I didn’t cut my hair the whole year for that season and my dad didn’t either, so it kind of inspired me for this year.”

Wilson hasn’t said yet if he’ll sport another long do next season, but if he considers it a lucky charm, we know thousands of fans are hoping he does.
