KANSAS CITY, Mo. (KMBC) - It’s the hair that Kansas City loves, and now it’s the hair that is the focus of a national commercial campaign.
Kansas City Chiefs quarterback Patrick Mahomes is the new star of a commercial campaign with Head & Shoulders in which he costars with football legend and longtime hair icon Troy Polamalu.
In the commercial, Mahomes and Polamalu argue about the most important aspect of Head & Shoulders in a new “offense vs. defense” advertisement.
People Magazine first released the new commercial, and Mahomes visited with the magazine about his iconic hair style. He said he started to wear his hair in a mohawk when he was at Texas Tech.
“Everyone has their own style,” Mahomes told People. “You see it with the uniforms, you see it with how guys go about their business, showing up at games and being on the field. They want to be unique.
“It wasn’t something I wasn’t going for, but once it grew out, everybody seemed to like it and it kind of became a thing. Now it’s a thing in the NFL, and it’s part of who I am.”
