When Are We Going To See Aaron Rodgers With Long Hair?

Certainly among the great quarterbacks of all time, we are still waiting for Aaron Rodgers to capture his second Super Bowl and grow long hair—like really long.

At the dawn of a fresh 2022 season, when everyone is still in it, we take a look at Aaron Rodgers’ hair throughout his decorated NFL career, asking the question we’ve all been wondering…

What’s the deal with Aaron Rodgers?

Coming out of college, first at Butte College and then Cal, Aaron Rodgers had a clean-cut, high and tight, prototypical quarterback haircut.

The first promising signs of long hair came in 2008, Aaron Rodgers’ first season as the starting quarterback for the Green Bay Packers. At this point we’re thinking, “ok, this guy is fully in.”

At least the stache is coming in.


In 2020 The Longhairs had the inside edge. Through a friend of the program we delivered a hair care package to All-Hair-Pro Davante Adams out of Fresno State, complete with custom Hair Ties For Guys, headwraps, shampoo & conditioner and more.

Our enclosed handwritten letter ended with a call to action for Davante:

PS: tell #12 to grow his hair out.
#12 won his third MVP.


Promising signs began to surface entering the 2021 season.
While reports alleged Aaron Rodgers began growing his hair out “for a Halloween costume,” it cannot be ruled out that he began growing long hair in direct response to our 2020 appeal via Davante Adams.

By the end of the season, Aaron Rodgers was a borderline longhair. While Super Bowl hopes were dashed yet again at the hands of the San Francisco 49ers, he went on to win his fourth MVP award.

That was almost the end for El Rubio, but the hair dream lived on. Would Aaron Rodgers continue growing in the offseason?


With each new season hope springs anew, and as we patiently waited for kickoff, Aaron Rodgers showed up for training camp as Cameron Poe in Con Air.

Thus we enter the 2022 season filled with nervous, excited energy.

And so, Aaron Rodgers: is this the year you finally win another Super Bowl and grow long hair?

The Longhairs are pulling for you.


  1. Aaron Rodgers, is he a longhair? Is he not? DOES HE Let It Ride? You just can’t pin this guy down.

  2. asking: “Would Aaron Rodgers continue growing in the offseason? ” on a site called the Longhairs is so evident that a french expression answer ” Demander à un aveugle s’ il veut voir ” ” ask a blind man if he want see “…lol
    and, for the foot season, let the better one be the winner !!!

  3. Pro footballer aside, standing up for what he believes in gets you in to that Hall of Fame.
    A national hero “I tells ya”.
