If you were a fan of Joe Keery’s thick, wavy hair, you won’t be pleased to find out that he cut it all off.
Sure, people get haircuts all the time. But as InStyle put it, Keery’s hair has become part of his persona, and people have been fixated on his mullet ever since he grew it out for Stranger Things. One look, and it’s hard not to wonder how it gets that way—if he lathers, rinses, and repeats, or if he air dries or blow dries with a barrel brush, and if there’s any pomade involved. We have questions, in other words.
But now, I don’t know if we’ll ever get the answers to them because Keery just went and chopped all his hair off into some sort of bowl cut situation. Sadly, that means his mullet is no more and all that’s left is some forehead bangs and a long sideburn situation. Anyway, here’s Joe before:
RIP to that look.
And here he is now:
Keery debuted this new look last night at the launch of the new Chanel fragrance, but it’s hard to tell if this is his vibe now or if it’s for a role. (His IMDB page says he has one movie, Free Guy, coming up in 2020, but that’s in post-production already, so this could very well just be his own doing.)
After looking at it for a minute, though, the shock has worn off. It’s starting to look a bit rock ‘n’ roll—like the dudes from Oasis, no? Or a bit like The Beatles?
Or not. In that case, let’s just be glad that hair grows back.
