Since the beginning of 2018, it’s not just Justin Bieber’s love life that’s sent the Internet into a tailspin—but his overgrown, shapeshifting blonde crop as well.
And as much delight as the world has taken in each new chapter of this year’s hair saga, from the 24-year-old singer’s grungy-hippie lengths slashed with a paisley-printed bandana to his matrimonial man bun, it’s safe to say that many—presumably his manager and other half Hailey Baldwin—will be relieved to find that after a good run, he’s officially shaved off his shaggy lengths, debuting a new platinum buzz cut on his Instagram Stories last night.
While the timing of his radical move on Mischief Night, also known as the night before Halloween, is both conspicuous and on brand for the pop star, whether his freshly shorn crop is, in fact, for the holiday remains to be seen. Either way, pressing reset on his unkempt coif and embracing a more polished abbreviated cut can only be a good thing as an allegedly newly married man.
