Announcing “new phase, new hair,” Robert Griffin III showed showed off his new cornrows Monday afternoon at Washington Redskins training camp in Richmond, Va.
The quarterback joked with reporters that he wanted a new look while preparing for the 2013 season. He ditched his old, loose braids for the tighter look.
“The guys love it — they love cornrows,” he said.
RG3 said he got the braids done by Candace at The Beauty Bar in Richmond.
“I enjoy it, I like it,” he said, adding that he expects to keep the hair until at least the Redskins Monday night opener against the Philadelphia Eagles. At that point, he said his mom might do his hair and bring it back to his old look.
