Actor Joe Keery, best known for playing Steve Harrington in Netflix hit Stranger Things, has previewed a new hairstyle. And Stranger Things fans are not happy.

The 27-year-old has opted for his take on the bowl cut, which is a bold departure from the long, 1980s inspired hairstyle he wears in Stranger Things. Joe displayed his drastic cut in LA while attending a dinner celebration for Chanel’s new fragrance, Gabrielle Chanel Essence.

But is it a bowl cut though?

Joe’s new cut has seen a couple of inches comes off and styled flat against the head – but the internet might be wrong about the style being a bowl cut.

“Joe has gone drastic and chopped off his messy mop, but this shock move is definitely not a classic bowl cut as the internet is describing it as,” says Anne Veck, owner of Anne Veck Salons. “That style is too hard and clean cut, whereas this shorter finish has left layers which still give’s Joe movement and makes the most out of his natural hair texture. Joe’s new look has a vintage Mick Jagger feel to it – carefree, and keeping it au natural and with minimal fuss.  Joe has never been big on the polished look, and he’s brilliantly rocking the ‘I haven’t even tried’ feel.”

Anne continues: “What’s brilliant about this unpolished style is it can be worn raw or slicked back. The length still makes it versatile – it’s a great non-committal style for people who want total freedom to change up their look day by day. Fiber from American Crew will give a medium hold but low on shine, so the natural hair texture is accentuated. Invisible styling is key.”

The so-called bowl cut has been in the news of late in the celebrity world, with Charlize Theron sporting the style for her role as Cipher in The Fast and the Furious film franchise.

The reactions

Fans reactions to the new look have been mixed. “Joe Keery what did you do to your hair?” asked one person on Twitter.

Another fan tweeted: “RIP Joe Keery’s old hair. And a fourth joked: “can i have everyones attention please, we are gathered here today to mourn the loss of joe keery’s hair, you are gone but not forgotten, let us now take a moment of silence [sic].”
