2016 is here and it seems like Justin Bieber is taking the mantra "new year, new me" to heart. Today, he debuted fresh cornrows on Instagram, blaming "friend" and model Hailey Baldwin in his caption, writing "Hailey made me get corn rows like an absolute douche bag, these will be off tomorrow trust me Danny." Even Hailey looks a little skeptical in the photo, if we're being honest.
While we included "experimental hair" on our Best Trends of 2015 list and Bieber topped our ranking of the Most Stylish Celebrities for the past year, this look is a bit different than what we had in mind and what we've grown to appreciate about his recent style renaissance. Thankfully, though, it looks like it's also going to be a little less permanent.
It should be noted that Justin also involved himself in a similar Instagram debate about the hairstyle over the summer, jumping in to defend his friend Kylie Jenner when her take on the style was met with criticism.
If Justin does get rid of his cornrows tomorrow, at least we'll have an "after" photo to look forward to.
