Fernando Torres: The Hair Files
Why yes, it is a slow news day, thanks for asking! Now let’s analyse Fernando Torres’s hair.
Why He Cut His Hair
“To be honest, I told my wife ‘I need to look more like a father’…but…everyone tells me now I look like a kid so it was a mistake.” – Fernando Torres when asked why he cut his hair.
When he first got the chop, vindication was our initial feeling. But we’re starting to agree with Fern – the cut may not have propelled Nando to being breakout star of the World Cup, but we lurve his natural baby boy brown look now.
Why He Refused To Do It In The Past
Oddly enough, his father supports the short style since he once tried bribing a 17-year-old ‘Nando to cut his hair in exchange for a car. Fern’s response to his fathers request + a mandatory trip to bible studies? No go on the cuttage – saying biblical long-haired boys Samson, John The Baptist and Jesus were his inspiration.
“But did you notice they all walked everywhere?” was his dad’s clever comeback. Point taken.
Why He Won’t Do It In The Future
In response to speculation on what he’d do if Spain won the World Cup, “making promises related to hair is easy. That wouldn’t be any problem and the occasion requires something bigger.”
What Has Extra Meaning Now We Know What We Know About Mr. Torres And His Fertile Baby-Making Abilities
With wifey Olalla pregnant with their second child, Fern’s comments about looking more like a father make sense. He’s all growed up, bless.
