Travis Kelce brought back the mustache for "fun."
On Aug. 2, 2023, the Chiefs' official X (formerly known as Twitter) account revealed Travis's bold new facial hair: "The stache is back," they announced alongside a photo of the four-time All-Pro at training camp.
Travis, who's considered one of the greatest tight ends of all time, showed off his mustache on Inside Training Camp Live. He joked that his new look earned him the nickname "El Travedor" before pointing out that this isn't the first time he's embraced the 'stache life.
"It's just having fun at camp, man, trying to switch up the look," Travis explained the reason behind his mustache. "You get sick of looking at yourself in the mirror with all this fur on your face, and then shoutout to Andy Reid, baby. It's the 'stache time, baby! The power of the 'stache."
So, there you have it: Travis Kelce's mustache has nothing to do with Taylor Swift and everything to do with the Chiefs longtime head coach Andy Reid (he makes a 'stache look extremely cool).
Travis Kelce's mustache received a mixed response from fans.
Some folks ended up loving the 'stache, but others, not so much.
"Travis Kelce needs to get rid of that mustache," a third person replied, adding that he's "lookin' like somebody Deputy Sheriff." Well, they're not wrong...
What is Travis Kelce's haircut called?
According to Man for Himself, Travis's specific haircut is referred to as a "buzz cut fade with mustache." You'll need regular trimmings to keep the buzz cut fade looking fresh, but it's said to be otherwise pretty low-maintenance.
As Patrick wrote on Instagram in August 2023, featuring photos of his working on Travis:
"Call it a tradition now. Three years and counting sending @killatrav to Training Camp with the Andy Reid Stache 👨🏻 ... @tmz_tv ... Using the @babyliss4barbers SnapFX Trimmer to Do the Job ☘️."
"Legends," someone commented beneath the post.
