Fans were surprised yesterday by the new Justin Bieber haircut as the star decided it was time to trade his signature style in for a more mature look.

The fans were able to follow along in Bieber’s decision making process through Twitter as the star sent a message contemplating the cut beforehand. He later updated with a confession that the deed had been done.

When asked about his new look, Bieber said he had wanted a change. He admitted his hair was always in his eyes and he wanted something that was not in face.

The new look is shorter and spikier, but the old hair is not totally gone. The teen heartthrob announced on Twitter that it was being donated to CHARITY for auction.
