Joe Keery is a lot extra than simply his hair. He is a unbelievable actor, a beloved son and brother, and if I ever have the chance to satisfy him, I am certain I might uncover that he is a typically all-around good dude. However I might be mendacity — as would many different followers, I think about — if I mentioned his thick, wavy, almost-mullet wasn’t one of many causes I turned a fan within the first place. However this week, Keery debuted a very surprising haircut that hasn’t made individuals this upset at him since his character, Steve Harrington, was a bonafide jerk for the primary few episodes of Stranger Issues‘ first season.
On Thursday, September 12, Keery attended dinner in Los Angeles in celebration of Chanel’s new perfume, Gabrielle Chanel Essence. He wore an extremely cool black-and-white piped swimsuit, nevertheless it was arguably upstaged by what can solely be described as a bowl-cut-meets-The-Beatles-mop-top. (I even checked his IMDB web page to see if possibly he is been solid as Ringo Starr in one thing. He has not.) It laid flat towards his head, bangs shorter than the edges, straighter and much much less voluminous than the type we all know and love on him.
Maybe Keery was impressed by Charlize Theron’s latest swap to a bowl reduce, which obtained a ton of reward on social media. However the reception hasn’t been fairly as constructive for his tackle the look. Twitter has been full of less-than-happy reactions to the 27-year-old’s stunning new type.
“Friday the 13th and the spookiest factor I noticed at this time was Joe Keery’s haircut,” one individual tweeted. One other demanded motion, writing, “oh hell no who did this to joe keery I would like them in jail proper now.” Others in contrast the brand new look to Jim Carrey’s coiffure in Dumb and Dumber and different less-than-flattering character coifs. However one other individual tried to place out the fireplace and put all the things in perspective, writing in all caps, “JOE KEERY IS HANDSOME NO MATTER WHAT HIS HAIR LOOKS LIKE.” Not unfaithful.
Is it for an element? Is it — heaven forbid — for the subsequent season of Stranger Issues? Was he simply feeling trapped beneath the burden of his iconic locks? We might by no means know. However we are able to stay hopeful that we’ll see Joe Keery together with his signature type once more sometime, and we’ll be there to assist him in the course of the awkward growing-out levels.
