Finn Wolfhard Reveals His Shortest Haircut Ever — See Photo
Mike from Stranger Things is back at it, folks. Just weeks after Finn Wolfhard shocked Instagram by revealing a straight and shaggy mullet haircut, he’s set his fans on social media into a tizzy again with the shortest chop he’s had in a long time. On November 6, the 17-year-old actor posted a selfie to his account in which his beloved curls are cropped above his ear — not a sight his fans are accustomed to. He aptly captioned the post, “BuzzFeed is going to make an article about this. OK go.”
Clearly, he’s right about that, because though we’re not BuzzFeed, here we are, freaking out like the rest of the internet. Much like the first time he got a drastic haircut, the actor’s reveal is gaining traction fast — in less than an hour, almost half a million people have liked the post, and more than 7,500 have left comments. The consensus? It’s mixed, given this guy’s big and beloved curls. “Long hair stans how we feelin,” writes one commenter. “RIP to his long hair 😔✊🏻,” writes another in sad solidarity. There are plenty of others who’ve been itching to see Wolfhard’s hair short for quite some time, however, as is evidenced by comments such as, “U FINALLY CUT YOUR HAIR” and “OMG FINN GOT A HAIRCUT.”
Whether this cut is specifically for a role or just for funsies has yet to be determined, but also doesn’t really matter ’cause those curls are gone, y’all. Stranger Things fans are going to need a moment of silence; this is the shortest anyone has seen his hair since he came to fame in the first season of the show — and he was only 12 years old back then. When long hair really became Wolfhard’s thing, we’re not sure, but one thing we do know: He must be reeling in the delight of not having hair all over his neck right now.
