Justin Bieber is intent on redefining his style with a new look that might be best described au naturale. First, he embraced his own acne to make pimples cool again. Now, he’s announced big plans for what was once his signature hair swoop via Instagram Stories: “I’m going to grow my hair down to my toes.”
In a series of selfies, Bieber showed off his newly acquired length. His hair reaches just below his ears in a cross between an Emilia Clarke bob and a Katy Perry pixie. He’s also growing out his stubble for a blond mustache and beard combo. He must have gotten some negative feedback on the first selfie, because he captioned the second “long hair don’t care and my stash is gorgeous.” 2018 Bieber is all about the self-love, even has attempts to take his look from Barney Rubble to Captain Caveman.
Unfortunately, after some research, we do have to pull out the “actually…” card on Bieber. It would likely take him more than a decade to grow his hair that long. As of last year, the Guinness World Record holder for “longest hair on a teenager” was Abril Lorenzatti of Argentina, with hair at 4 feet 11.84 inches long. She’s reportedly been growing her hair out for the past 11 years. Let’s indulge in some quick math: Hair grows from around a quarter inch to a half inch per month. Justin Bieber is five foot nine inches. If his hair grows at the rate of six inches per year, it would take at least 11.5 years for him to have hair down to his toes, if not longer. Now that’s a commitment.
We won’t hold Bieber to his promise, but we can recommend some ways to ensure healthy, long hair, like treatment masks, biotin supplements, and, of course, regular trims to keep the hair from getting ratty in case he decides to go for it. We doubt Bieber has all that work in mind when he imagines hair down to his toes. You know what’s an actually easy hairstyle? A buzzcut.
A Photographic Guide to All the Famous Women Justin Bieber Has Been Spotted Out with Over the Years
Circa 2010, Bieber was rumored to be dating musician Jessica Jarrell, whom he was touring with at the time. The pair were seen embracing on the red carpet at a Hollywood event that year.
Bieber made his relationship with Selena Gomez public in 2011, when the pair arrived hand-in-hand to the 2011 Vanity Fair Party wearing coordinating ensembles.
The pair stayed together on-and-off for five years, frequently appearing at awards shows and basketball games together, before breaking up (for good?) in 2016.
During one of those breaks with Gomez, Bieber performed at the 2012 Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, where he was spotted flirting with models Barbara Palvin and Miranda Kerr.
The singer was also spotted around town with YouTube and Instagram star Chantel Jeffries, including at a 2014 Ciroc party hosted by Diddy.
Bieber has been linked to both Kendall and Kylie Jenner countless times; both sisters made an appearance at the “Justin Bieber: Never Say Never” Los Angeles premiere in 2011.
Shanina Shaik and the singer were linked together in 2015 when they attended a party in Las Vegas together, as well as Coachella just days later.
Of all the rumors of Kendall and Kylie, the one that ended up being most persistent was their older half-sister, Kourtney. The mother of three was often spotted out with the singer in 2015, including at his Comedy Central Roast.
At the taping of the show, Bieber was seen coming over to greet Kardashian, who was attending alongside Kendall.
A few years before being romantically linked to Bieber, Hailey Baldwin attended the New York premiere of Justin Bieber: Never Say Never back in 2011.
Four years later, the pair were often spotted out and about together. It was rumored that the two dated seriously circa 2016.
Last year, Bieber was spotted out with another famous scion: Sofia Richie, daughter of Lionel Richie and half-sister of Nicole Richie.
The pair were spotted shopping in Tokyo by paparazzi, but would soon break up just weeks later.
