Just putting it out there, but after our last epic trip through Shia LaBeouf’s facial hair history, we kiiiiind of thought he was done. Finished. Finito. After all, where can you really go after Shia Stubble Stage 4, AKA the seriously grown out Full-On Woodsman look?! Turns out there’s a LOT more room for growth…and we mean that literally (pun definitely intended). Last night the actor hit The Tonight Show With Jay Leno, where he debuted his brand-new shaggy ’do and caused a communal jaw-dropping session this morning. Sure, he’s got the same ringlets as he did when we last left him last year, but this time they fall almost to his shoulders! Paired with his sleek suit, the unkempt hair reminds us a little bit of a movie star version of Buffalo Bill, don’t you think?

Turns out his long style isn’t a TOTAL 180, since the actor recently showed off his long hair during the Cannes Film Festival. Considering he plays a Prohibition-era bootlegger in his new movie Lawless, we can see how a slicked-back version of the look makes sense. He’s come a looong way since his Stage 2-era Details magazine days, that’s for sure, and we’re not sure how we feel. Are you into Shia’s scruffy look? Tell us in the comments!
