Adam Levine's New Hairdo Is Surprising

If you were scrolling through your Instagram feed on Sunday and saw a photo of Adam Levine with a mohawk and wondered what the heck was going on, you're not alone. According to People, the singer really did cut this edgy new 'do, and as unexpected as it was, it's pretty badass.

Levine hasn't really messed around with his hair too much over the years, but if you're going to finally make a change, you might as well go big, right? The 37-year-old posted a photo to Instagram on Sunday, showing off a legit mohawk and holding a pair of clippers. So what's the deal? Is this for real? Oh yeah — it totally is. And he cut it himself. Bold.

"This is what happens when you cut your own s—," Levine wrote on the caption. And given all the hair trimmings on the bathroom counter, this is no joke, ladies and gents. Levine has always had a bit of an edge to him, but TBH, it isn't like I was expecting him to go and cut a mohawk — but it definitely works on him, and I can't say I'm mad about it. It seems like his wife, Behati Prinsloo, has given her seal of approval, too, sharing the image on her account with the caption "Baby daddy … #TB."

He hasn't shared any pictures since, so I'm curious to see how this looks IRL, but based on that snap, it's pretty cool. In case you forgot, this was how his hair looked before:

So definitely a little more clean cut. And though it's been shorter:

And even pink at one point:

The mohawk is probably his most extreme hair transformation to date. I'm not sure if it'll stick around permanently, but you do you, Adam!
