Justin Bieber fans probably couldn't Belieb their eyes when the teen idol trimmed his signature mop top yesterday.
"Thinking about getting a haircut....hmmmmmm," Bieber tweeted shortly before getting snipped. The 16-year-old, who was filming a music video with the band Rascal Flatts when he transformed his tresses, told TMZ he decided to switch up his 'do because he wanted a "more mature look."
"I just wanted kind of a change," he said. "I didn't want to cut it all off. I've had it for 3 ½ years. I just got sick of it. It was in my eyes and I just wanted it out of my face."
Bieber, who shared photos of his shorter, spikier style with TMZ, says his strands will be sold to benefit charity. (Jay DeMarcus of Rascal Flatts, above, also snapped a pic with the teen and his new cut.)
"Yeah so it's true...i got a lil haircut...i like it...and we are giving all the hair cut to CHARITY to auction," Bieber tweeted. "Details coming soon."
What do you think of his new style?
