Channing Tatum has surprised fans by unveiling a bold new hair colour and style.
The Magic Mike actor took to his Instagram Stories on Tuesday (19Mar19) to post a selfie showing him pointing to his fresh buzz cut and platinum blond dye job.
Adding a poll button, Channing wrote, “Bad idea? Haha,” and allowed options for “Yes” and “No.”
In spite of asking for opinions, in a follow-up post, he indicated that he will be sticking with his blond hair as he captioned the snap: “Well, bad ideas are sort of my thing. So…”
It is not clear when Channing bleached his naturally brown hair as he was seen sporting a black cap in recent paparazzi photos, in which he was spotted with new girlfriend Jessie J.
However, the makeover has divided the 38-year-old’s followers. Many praised the look, with one user writing, “Love the new hair! Looks great!” and another commenting, “Channing can do no wrong.”
A third noted, “I didn’t know I needed blond @channingtatum until I saw him.”
Though many users made comparisons between Channing’s hair and Eminem’s signature look.
“Will the Real Slim Shady please stand up,” one person wrote, referring to the rapper’s 2000 song, another added: “I’m not emotionally ready to talk about Channing Tatum going blond.”
Channing has mostly stuck with his brown hair for movie roles in recent years, though he did show off lighter hair while visiting Peru with his then-wife Jenna Dewan in late 2015 and shaved his head for 2009 movie G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra.
Other celebrity men to recently try out platinum blond hair include Justin Bieber, Chris Messina, Riz Ahmed, Pete Davidson, and Zac Efron.
