“Neil, what’s going on with your hair?”
Tim Johnson told me before the start of the Oak Glen stage that he loves my new haircut
I’ve been at the Redlands Classic these past couple of days. The first day a few managers and riders commented on the length of my hair. I admit it, I don’t spend a lot of time on personal grooming. Tim and I often let personal hygiene slide when we hit the road when we cover the tours… but I digress.
So on the drive back home (I only live a little over an hour from Redlands) I knew I had to make a phone call to my personal stylist. I know what you’re thinking, “Neil has a stylist?” and “Well it must be Slover, the metrosexual hairdresser to the stars.” Both of these statements are true: I have a personal stylist, but Slover, due to his busy schedule, only does my stylings when I do television and radio appearances. He doesn’t lower himself to do my hair for my road trips. So I go to my back-up stylist: Pedro. Everyone should have a back-up stylist.
So this morning as I made the rounds through the team cars talking to riders and managers, almost everyone commented on my shorter and stylish hair cut. Yep, I’m back to being extremely attractive.
