Calum Hood Shaves Head

When Calum Hood of 5 Seconds of Summer tweeted that he would be shaving his head on December 16, the 5SOS fandom –– lovingly called the “5SOS Fam” –– turned to chaos.

Most fans’ first wondered if Calum was just joking. Others’ first thoughts were about how much of Calum’s hair would be shaven off, if he was in fact not joking at all.

It seems, though, that everyone has gotten their answer. On December 17, the talented vocalist and bassist posted the following of him on the official 5SOS Snapchat account “wearefivesos”:

It seems that Calum has shaven off the sides of his head and much of the top, giving him an edgy military-style appearance. With longer hair or without, Calum still manages to look stunningly handsome.

For all of those fans that remained unsure about the new hairdo, every last bit of uncertainty soon disappeared. Once footage of 5SOS performing at the Miami Jingle Ball on December 18 was released, it was hard not to love the new hair.

Calum’s newer, edgier hair definitely adds to the punk-rock vibe surrounding him and his spray-painted bass guitar. It’s interesting that Calum has decided to make a statement as bold as shaving off most of your hair. He doesn’t seem to miss his blonde-streaked curls, so why should anyone else?

In further 5SOS news, the Aussie band has recently released a music video for their new single, “Jet Black Heart”. If you’ve watched it, how did you like it? Tweet us about Calum’s hair or the JBH music video to @CelebMix, or leave us a comment below!
