Justin Bieber ditches dreadlocks, sports freshly shaved head

Belieb it, Beliebers: Justin Bieber is dreadlocked no more.

The pop superstar has ditched the dreads that threw so many fans into a tizzy a month ago when he started displaying them on Instagram.

Yep, it's a much more traditional look for Bieber, who has essentially shorn his hair off (though not down to the scalp.)

Dreadlocks can be a tough look to pull off, and not everybody understands them.

Remember last year, when Disney star Zendaya wore a gorgeous long set of locs to the Academy Awards, and was the subject of critical comments from Giuliana Rancic? And in 2013, a 7-year-old girl was banned from her school for wearing them.

Fortunately, Bieber has apparently seen the hair-ror of his ways.

Or maybe not. Last week he posted an Instagram video in which he addressed some of the hair controversy in a mocking stoner voice, plus comments that he just likes being offbeat:

Being weird is fun' if u r not weird I don't like you
