Justin Bieber Says He's Sorry About His Hair

Since Day 1, Justin Bieber has been catching attention for his hair. In those early days, it was because his light brown locks seemed to swirl around his head like one unified, sentient being. Lately, though, it's because he dyed it platinum blonde and (according to some people's tastes) has gone too long without getting a haircut.

Biebs took to Instagram to issue an apology:

For all u fools saying cut my hair it's in an awkward stage I'm sorry lol. But I'm growing it out and there's gonna a be a period of time where it looks dumb lol a hat only does so much. #insecure lol

So, if you're a hater of Justin's current look, too bad for you! Not only is he not cutting it, he's growing it LONGER.

Here's a better look at his current progress without the hat.

And a rotating bird's eye view just in case that wasn't enough for you.

How long are we talking, you ask? Unfortunately, that's a question we can't answer at this time, but given how ~trendy~ man buns (and braids, thanks to Jared Leto) are right now, we can only imagine where he's headed. Regardless, be easy on the dude as he transitions his look.
