Derrick Rose has been known for two things: his haircut and his mask. Now that we have a new Derrick Rose haircut, and no mask to speak of, it’s pure chaos out there. He’s bringing back the look that he sported during his 2010-2011 MVP campaign.
Today we’re going to look at the evolution of this new haircut, and how Derrick Rose is starting fresh without a mask on. Was this the right call? By the end of this post, you’ll just have to decide. In the meantime let’s look at yet another of today’s popular athletic-inspired cuts.
The Short and Clean Look
This first photo of Derrick shows off something similar to his new look. He’s sporting a clean and short style with a temple fade here.
The Derrick Rose Haircut: Afro Edition
Here we have Derrick sporting a short afro that stays out of his face, but looks stylish with a bit of facial hair. Personally, I think this is his best cut.
Green Screen Derrick
Standing in front of a green screen, I’m not sure what Derrick is doing. He’s probably performing a commercial with his small, but stylish afro.
My Haircut, it’s Mine!
I know it really looks like Derrick is protecting the ball here, but in reality he’s actually keeping his haircut away from this hater trying to steal it. Good call Derrick, you show him!
Casual Afro and Facial Hair
Sometimes you just need to wind down and relax in a pair of comfy pants and a shirt. Again, this afro style that Derrick has is perfect.
Yo, Nice Haircut Bro
I’m not positive what’s being whispered here, but I’m fairly certain number thirteen is giving Derrick a compliment about his temple fade afro. Who knows, I could be wrong, but usually I’m not.
This image shows Derrick with his classic look where he’s sporting a high top afro and his usual facial hair. These kids probably asked him if he’s the best player ever and he’s like “really? You have to ask?”

The New Style
And finally we have the new style Derrick Rose haircut. It’s short, clean, and he’s not wearing the mask. It works, but it doesn’t differentiate him from the rest of players out there in terms of style.
