KJ Apa has a brand new look! The 23-year Riverdale star took to the ‘gram on Monday, June 29 to share a selfie with long hair and a double take-worthy beard.

The beard is a striking contrast from his usual clean-shaven look. It’s likely a result of the COVID-19 quarantine, which has inspired many other men to experimentally grow out their beards.

“Ohh dear…I like u better without the beard,” one disappointed fan commented on the photo. Another wrote, “KJ why do you look like that can u shave please this is not my barchie king.”

But, as mentioned, there are those followers who can’t get enough of his look. “Love that beard,” one follower stated. Another fan took to Twitter to say, “KJ Apa is sexy anyway with or without a beard with or without chest hair he gets all the rights .”

This long-bearded pic comes a few weeks after Apa posted a photo sporting shorter facial hair on June 9. He posted a photo of himself shirtless in a desert wearing shorts, sneaking, sporty sunglasses and a baseball cap.

His long hair flowed out from the back of the baseball cap and its evident from the pic that he was in the beginning stages of the quarantine beard.
