Joe Keery got a new haircut, and we just wanna talk.
Any Stranger Things fan will tell you that Keery's voluminous, wavy curls are the mainstay of his character Steve Harrington — that, and being the hottest babysitter of all-time. Brace yourself, folks, because it's with great despair that we report those thick, touchable tresses are no more.
While attending a dinner event to celebrate the launch of Chanel's new fragrance this Friday (September 13), the 27-year-old actor had heads turning — and Twitter in tears — when he debuted a brand new hairstyle on the red carpet last night. At the behest of some merciless god, Keery went ahead and chopped off his locks into a bowl cut — and the Internet had one question: "JOE KEERY WHAT DID YOU DO TO YOUR HAIR."
"Joe Keery looks like a grown Will Byers with his new bowl cut," joked one user, as another quipped in grief: "rip joe keery, he aint dead but his long luscious hair is gone! lets never ever forget!"
Needless to say, Steve Harrington — the Daddy we've come to thirst and love and plaster our walls with — is dead and gone.
