“Oh Noooooo!,” wrote one fan who saw a picture of Nelson’s new do on the website of Nashville television and radio personality Jimmy Carter.
Nelson’s waist-deep, reddish pigtails have long been one of the singer-songwriter’s signature features. But spokeswoman Elaine Schock said Nelson, who’s been hanging loose in Hawaii, got his hair cut in the past couple of weeks.

Schock said the Texas-born performer didn’t make a big fuss about the makeover and thought he might have grown tired of dealing with long locks. She said, “there’s a lot of maintenance.”
