After months of teasing that he might cut his famous hair, Justin Bieber debuted a shorter 'do Monday.
TMZ got the lowdown from the pop sensation on his new look. Photos of the cropped cut — courtesy of his hair stylist, Vanessa — appeared on the website Monday. In one photo, Bieber is with Gary LeVox, lead singer of Rascal Flatts, on the set of the video for their duet, "That Should Be Me," from Bieber's Never Say Never - The Remixes.
Biebs explained that he "wanted to change it up" and that he thought the cut was "kind of a mature look." He will turn 17 next month, so perhaps the new 'do is a step in an older direction for the teen star.
