The Justin Bieber haircut has become part of his lore. Therefore, when a new Justin Bieber haircut appeared to be revealed days ago, his fans went nuts. Of course, it doesn’t take much for his fans to go crazy, as they caught his fever a long time ago. Their devotion has made him and his hair famous, so any change to his style stands to make international news. However, there is no new haircut for them to talk about and imitate, as it was just brushed differently for a day.
This past Friday, the tween idol seemed to show off a fresh look at a Barnes and Noble in New York. While promoting his book, fans noticed his bangs were in the opposite direction, and speculated that he had a hair product.
The traditional haircut is both famous and infamous, as it goes all the way down to his eyebrows. Friday’s style showed off a little bit more of his forehead, but it was enough to get fans riled up.
However, it may not qualify as a haircut, since it appears to have just been brushed a different way. Manager Scooter Braun denied it was a cut, as he Tweeted that Justin just “needs to shake his head.” In any case, the style looked the same as always afterward, when he went to London and Spain during the weekend.
Even though there may be no new haircut, the mere appearance of one is enough to start a fire. Anything he does, or doesn’t do, is major news to his fans and Internet trends lists. But for all the things he is best known for, his hair may be at the top of the list.
The look has even spread to the sports world, as Tom Brady’s recent style has yielded endless Bieber comparisons. Although the most famous bowl haircut in pop culture is still Mr. Spock’s, Justin’s has revived the style for a younger generation.
If the style was to ever undergo real change, his fans may well riot. Changing signature looks is a risky business, as Emma Watson raised eyebrows with a shorter cut months ago and Keri Russell was scorned for cutting her curls years ago.
But once Justin eventually gets older, he will have to change his hair sometime – so the recent fervor may serve as a dry run for when that day comes.
