Tom Brady and several of his Tampa Bay Buccaneers teammates attended the Cut and color for a cure charity event this week in aid of National Pediatric Cancer Foundation.

On Wednesday, more than 50 Buccaneers staff members had their hair cut and colored by pediatric cancer patients at the event, including the 44-year-old quarterback.

While spending quality time with cancer patients and survivors at the AdventHealth Training Center in Tampa Bay, Brady received a team-inspired makeover using hair dye.

The kids took turns spraying Brady’s brunette locks orange and red – the Buccaneers’ team colors – and the seven-time Super Bowl champion even encouraged them to be “creative”.

“It’s cold!” Brady said in a video as a young girl sprayed dye on her hair.

Hall was sitting in a barber chair when Brady walked over and signed his name to his sandal. Images of the moment have been posted on the team’s website Twitter page.
