Calipari not cutting hair even though it “looks like shit”

Like the rest of us, John Calipari has let his grooming habits go a little bit during quarantine. When the pandemic started and the world stopped in March, Cal started growing a beard, but lately, his hair has been what’s drawing headlines. This morning, Calipari said that even though his friends tell him his hair “looks like shit,” he’s going to let the flow grow.

“I may shave the beard. I don’t know. The wife wants me to shave the beard which means there’s probably little chance I will. The haircut — everybody’s on me. ‘You’ve got to cut your hair. Your hair looks like shit.’ That’s what they’re saying to me. I’m like, I may not cut my hair for a while. I don’t know.”

Hilariously, Calipari then turned his attention to Jon Hale from The Courier Journal, who only had his video on for 20 or so seconds in the Zoom, which was long enough for Cal to notice his hair.

“I looked at Jon Hale, he looks like shit too. He put a hat on. I don’t know, is his hair sideways. I don’t know what it is, but he looks like hell too.”

Over the weekend, Ellen Calipari posted a picture of her husband’s locks on Instagram, comparing him to Fabio. Calipari joked that going back to suits and ties will be quite an adjustment (whenever that happens).

“My wife says, business in the front, party in the back. I don’t know. I’m like — I just don’t want to get it cut until everything is underway. The beard, the beard was looking — I trimmed it down. I just said, I may keep the hair going for a while. I don’t know. I’m in shorts and a t-shirt and flip flops and my hair is everywhere. I’ve got holes in my jeans. I don’t know what it means. I really don’t know what it means.”

Quarantine hair don’t care.
