In Memory Of Tom Sandoval's Braided Locks


I really hope his braid guy has found other work, because Tom Sandoval's long hair is gone. That's right, the Vanderpump Rules star is back to short hair that can no longer be braided. His co-star and bestie Tom Schwartz made the massive announcement Friday on Instagram with a photo of himself and Sandoval's new 'do. "BREAKING @tomsandoval1 parts ways with his signature locks," Schwartz wrote alongside it.

As you can see below, Sandoval looks quite dapper with that short hair. And all I have to say about it is: FINALLY. Why did it take this long for him to get rid of his long hair and all those random white streaks throughout it? Really, what was he thinking? Since Season 5 of Pump Rules premiered, it's been an extremely confusing time for me regarding Sandoval's hairstyle choice. During each episode, I would ask myself, "What is going on? What possessed him to do that?"

Honestly, I really didn't mind the length. I find guys with long hair attractive. But, when you add in white streaks and then style it weirdly, yeah, I can't get on board with that. However, the short hair is something I'm all about. Good choice, Sandoval. You are looking very sophisticated now. Let's just hope it stays that way.

As glad as I am to see Sandoval with shorter hair, I don't think it'd be right if I didn't honor the hair that garnered so much attention. It only seems appropriate to give it a send-off and remember all of the times Sandoval's hair made Pump Rules viewers laugh — and cringe.
