Matt Hamilton‘s famous locks are no more — the U.S. curling legend just chopped them off … but, don’t worry, he got the cut for a VERY good cause!!
TMZ Sports has learned … Hamilton — who won a gold medal at the 2018 Winter Olympics — hit up a Great Clips salon in Madison, Wisc. on Friday in order to cut his luscious hair and donate it to kids who have experienced hair loss due to medical issues.
It’s a sizeable donation from Hamilton … considering Matt’s had the long hair for FOUR years. And, we’re told as of chopping time, it had reached over a foot in length!!
Hamilton also got the cut to help raise awareness and money for brain cancer research.
As for how the good deed turned out aesthetically … check out the before and after — Hamilton sure looks good to us!
Props to the 33-year-old for the awesome gesture … and if anyone wants to follow in his generous footsteps, check out Hamilton’s campaign.
