Fashion icon Mike Woodson told JR Smith to get rid of blond hair
New York Knicks guard JR Smith was seen rocking a blond hairdo earlier this week, but the color change was short lived. Why is that you ask? According to ESPN New York’s Ian Begley, Knicks head coach Mike Woodson told Smith to go back to his original hair.
In an interview with Knicksnow.com, Smith explained that he decided to dye his hair blond after watching the movie “Meteor Man.” His brother, as well as teammate Iman Shumpert, dared him to dye his hair, and he went out and did it the next day. As part of the challenge, Shumpert dyed his flat top gray.
But Woodson, whose fashion choices have been ridiculed by Smith in the past, apparently told Smith to change it back. So Smith dyed his hair red (seen at the top) and then back to black.
Here’s what it looks like now that it’s back to normal:
Below is Smith’s interview with Knicksnow.
In case you were wondering, this is not the first time Woodson has made changes to Smith’s appearance.
