James Charles debuted his freshly shaved head and now the Internet is wondering, is this for real? Keep scroll to see the new style!
On Thursday, Feb. 11, the YouTuber took to his Instagram Story to share his new hairstyle: a jaw-dropping, completely bald head.
“My stories have been slacking so bad recently,” he captioned a pic of with his signature, dark brown locks. He quickly followed the typical snap with one where the top of his head was hidden. As he wrote, “Wait until you guys see what I did with my hair…”
The officially unveiling had fans in a frenzy. “BREAKING: James Charles to play Jeff Bezos in new biopic,” one fan tweeted with a side by side of Charles and the Amazon CEO. “Expected to hit streaming platforms this summer.” Meanwhile, others compared him to Callou, Avatar and Mr. Clean.
Shortly after the reveal, The Hollywood Fix caught up with the 21-year-old content creator while out in L.A. and, after striking a few poses for the camera, he confirmed that, yes, the bald look is absolutely real.
“Just trying something new,” he shared, noting he trimmed his tresses himself. “You like it? Just giving a new look. It’s real.” Of course, the Internet personality admitted he “filmed the whole thing” so fans can certainly expect to see the big chop hitting YouTube one of these days.
Still, despite his confirmation, some aren’t buying it. On the Hollywood Fix clip, one commenter wrote, “It doesn’t look real, but idk. I guess we’ll see in the YouTube video.”
Another pointed out, “Y’all he didn’t even shave it. It’s a bald cap you can easily tell… James has said many times that he never will do anything to his hair again after it falling out from bleaching it.”
We guess time will tell.
