The Weeknd got a new haircut, and whoa, he looks completely "differnt"

The Weeknd got a new haircut, and whoa, he looks completely "differnt" On September 9th, the "The Hills" singer walked the red carpet at the Toronto International Film Festival sporting a fresh new ‘do. The Weeknd let his hair down and shaved his iconic close-cut beard into a scruffy ‘stache. The artist debuted his new lewk at the TIFF premiere of his upcoming film, Uncut Gems. Fans and followers haven’t seen nor heard much from him since he deactivated his social media accounts earlier this summer, so, needless to say, the haircut made waves. But we’re kind of into it. Sure, he kind of looks like a mashup between Lionel Ritchie and Bruno Mars. But we definitely don’t hate it. Many are saying that this new appearance is clearly his alter ego, Abel Makkonen Tesfaye (which is his given name, fyi). Listen, he may be pulling a Childish Gambino/Donald Glover-like rebrand. And that’s totally okay. Love it or hate it, we have to give kudos to Abel for trying something new. Perhaps he’ll end up spearheading the return of the ’80s mustache. Let’s hope not, but one never knows.
