Inspired by 2010’s big choppers Emma Watson, Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, and Keira Knightley (OK, maybe not!), My Chemical Romance band member Gerard Way recently took a pair of scissors to his Kool-Aid-colored coif, shearing the sides and trimming a couple of inches off the top. Is the new ’do a sneak peek at the singer’s stage style for MCR’s upcoming tour? Maybe. But Gerard didn’t stop with just a cut. He also refreshed his pinkish-red dye job, covering up his grown-out brown roots, for a lush look that we sort of have the urge to run our fingers through.
