Justin Bieber captioned the Instagram photos he posted on Sunday (Apr. 25) with two palm trees, indicating that the 27-year-old singer was on vacation. And like the stereotype of a college coed getting braids when she spends her Spring Break in the Caribbean, Justin decided to bust out the dreadlocks.
This isn’t the first time that Justin Bieber had such a hairstyle, but for some, it was still a shock. “What happened to your hair darling?” asked one fan in the comments. Fans actually got a first look at Justin Bieber’s new hair hours before these photos when he posted a shot of him sunbathing alongside Hailey Baldwin.
“Back in action,” a shirtless Justin Bieber captioned the shot, his wife lounging on a beach towel while wearing a green bikini dotted with flowers. The show showed how Justin Bieber’s hair was being groomed into locks, but for some reason, there was no outcry in the comments section of these photos.
This is not the first time that Justin Bieber has styled his hair into dreadlocks. He famously wore his hair that way in 2016, debuting a set of blonde dreadlocks ahead of that year’s iHeartRadio Music Awards. Justin Bieber caught flak and was hit with accusations of cultural appropriation, but the then-22-year-old Biebs responded with a mocking Instagram video.
