Post-haircut. 

All-American Uggs wearer and Patriots quarterback Tom Brady hasn’t always been so ridiculously good-looking. Like us mortal humans, he went through a bit of an awkward phase in high school. Never fear, we have photographic proof!

The five-time Super Bowl-winning quarterback recently posted a picture from his freshman year in high school and his hair is everything.

“Time to bring it back?? #hairgoals” Brady wrote.
