Brace yourselves, TW Fanmily because Jay McGuiness got a new haircut and it’s not what you would expect.
After months of letting his pretty curls grow wild, The Wanted’s quirkiest member decided to shake things up a bit with a new hairdo. Jay didn’t just trim his hair — he decided to shave off the sides and the back of his head. For those who are in love with Jay’s signature curls, don’t fret. He left the hair on the top of his head alone so no, they’re not completely gone.
He debuted his new look at the SD2 Festival in Brighton, England where he performed with the rest of The Wanted on Sunday.
We here at ANDPOP like Jay’s new ‘do but we may just be saying that because it’s a more extreme version of our online editor’s (okay, my) own hair (Twinsies!). We’re also big fans of self-expression so if this is what he wants, why not?
What do you think of Jay McGuiness’ new hair cut?
One question we’ve had on our minds all day since we first laid eyes on Jay’s new haircut was: what could’ve prompted such a big sartorial change? Not surprisingly enough, it was probably beer.
“Last night, me, max and Eric (our bass guitarist), thought it was time to do some fun things and so we decided to shave off some of my hair,” said Jay in a recent interview. “Some of the fans will be very disappointed.”
Oh, Jay. Don’t ever change.
