Up until this season, AJ Hawk's hair has been the most eye catching thing about his style. The long hair was in memory of the late NFL player Pat Tillman, a U.S. Army member who gave the ultimate sacrifice in Afghanistan back in 2005.

But in spring 2012, AJ Hawk went ahead and got his hair cut. Again, his locks represented a worthy cause. He donated his hair to the charity Wigs for Kids. This program makes hair pieces for kids recovering from chemotherapy.

His hair plans may be done for now, but they've showed much about his character over the years.
