Shawn Mendes is growing his hair... oh wait, no he's got it cut already!

When Shawn Mendes announced at the start of October he would be growing his hair, we've got to admit we were just a little sceptical about whether Shawn would be able to resist getting it cut...

Turns out we were right, people! Shawn's only gone and got a hair cut already!

Celebrity stylist Anna Bernabe posted a photo on Instagram over the weekend of Shawn post-cut and those cute curls are back to how they used to be.

That's only two months after Shawn tweeted on 1st October: "Growing my hair. Tweeting it so I can't change my mind."

Shawn's long hair first caught the attention of fans in a selfie taken during his tour of Australia. Shawn posed with the stunning Byron Bay view behind him... but it was Shawn’s hair that got fans talking.

“Your hair!” One fan commented alongside heart-eyes emojis, as another said: “His hair looks so good.”

Meanwhile, over on Twitter some fans told the ‘In My Blood’ singer to cut his hair, with one even saying: “Cut your hair I dare you.”

“Shawn ily but… cut your hair please,” begged another, as someone else added: “Shawn is really growing his hair out, huh?”

Shawn's promise to grow his hair long wasn't the first time the 'Senorita' singer had posted on social media about his hair.

One fan went as far as to gather all of the 21-year-old singer’s related tweets and turned them into one post, captioning it: “We have you on tape Mr. @ShawnMendes. All your tweets about hair!”

The string of tweets, which date as far back as 2012, shows the ‘If I Can’t Have You’ hitmaker posting through the years and includes an old photo of a young Shawn with a longer hairstyle.

A fan said: “OMG NO!!!!! I LOVE YOUR FLUFFY HAIR! PLEASE DON’T GET A MULLET!!!”, while another wrote: “Are you going to grow your hair as long as Harry Potter did in the goblet of fire?”

Some of the Mendes Army took the opportunity to call out the star, mentioning the time he said he would grow his beard, and then shaved instead.

One tweet read: “You’ve said this about your beard and look at where we are now mendes…”

“’Growing a beard’ and you still shaved,” another added.

Shawn, who is currently on his self-titled world tour, recently warmed his fans’ hearts whilst doing a Q&A in Seoul, Korea, after he brought along a translator for fans who couldn’t ‘speak English very well’.

During the Q&A, a fan asked if he would share more of his life with fans on social media, saying: “Could you share more photos of your daily life with us? It’s the only way we have to see you and hear you,” to which he replied, “Yes, that makes sense. Yes, of course!”
