Justin Bieber: Shaves his head following backlash over his blonde dreadlocks

Justin Bieber finally has a fresh new ‘do following weeks of fans begging the singer to cut off his dreadlocks. Check his new look here!

Recently Justin Bieber surprised his followers by posting photos of his fresh buzzcut to Instagram, which comes one month after he was accused of cultural appropriation for styling his hair in dreadlocks.

The 27-year-old singer revealed the new look in two photos, sharing a black and white flick of his hand on top of his newly shaved head on his Instagram Stories before changing his Instagram profile picture to the same image.

After making the big reveal, the “Peaches” interpreter went on to post a sweet photo featuring his wife, Hailey Bieber in their Beverly Hills home. The photo shows the pair sitting at a table while enjoying some chips and guacamole, simply captioning the pic, “Happy Sunday.”

Justin Bieber debuted his new look on Sunday, the same night as the 2021 Billboard Music Awards, where he was nominated for Top Song Sales Artist, Top Radio Songs Artist, Top R&B Artist, Top R&B Male Artist and Top R&B Song for “Intentions,” featuring Quavo.

It seems like the two time Grammy Award-Winner was happy to spend the day with his wife instead of attending the big night of music. Despite being nominated multiple times, he did not win any awards, The Weeknd beat him in all 5 categories.


Fans didn't like dreadlocks on him

The singer debuted his dreadlocks for a second time on April 25, which was immediately met with mixed reviews. At the time, Justin Bieber posted a series of photos of the look while on vacation with Hailey Baldwin.

While some of his famous friends complimented the hairstyle, many of his followers criticized the look. “J, please educate yourself on culture appropriation…. You shouldn‘t be wearing dreads… With Love,” one fan wrote.

Billie Eilish’s first love and friend apparently listened to his fans and took off that haircut. Now Justin Bieber debuts with his song Peaches and makes history as the first solo male at No. 1 on the Billboard Hot 100 songs chart.
