While recovering from a shoulder injury, Terrence Romeo has decided to let go of his precious long hair over the week.

Romeo tapped the help of renowned barber Nuj Garcia to take care of his new hairstyle.

Garcia, who also served different PBA stars and celebrities, revealed the recent development in his Youtube channel posted Tuesday.

In his vlog, Garcia was supposed to shoot for his new content but a text message from Romeo prompted him to postpone the video making and tended to the San Miguel guard instead.

This time, Romeo sported a straight pixie cut with bangs covering his forehead and the sides hiding his ears.

On another take at the video, Romeo had his hair brushed up, having a similar look to the beginning of his long-haired GlobalPort days.

Before the long hair era, the former Far Eastern standout had rocked the blonde spiked hair in 2015 before dying it back to black and letting it grow in 2016 onwards.

Romeo also pulled off the braided cornrows on a few occasions during FIBA tournaments.

“Nuj the legend!” Romeo commented on Garcia’s Instagram post, thanking him for the new look.

San Miguel’s five-year reign in the Philippine Cup came to an end after a 90-68 rout from Meralco last Sunday.

The absence of Romeo and June Mar Fajardo, who also suffered a shin injury during the offseason, was a huge blow to the Beermen’s title defense.

Romeo, a three-time scoring champion, became the second San Miguel player to be ruled out of the shortened 45th season.
