He looks unrecognisable...

The Arctic Monkeys are known for many things but drastic makeovers isn't really one of them. The 'I Bet You Look Good On The Dancefloor' hitmakers have gradually smartened up their look throughout their 16 year long career but, in between the release of their debut album Whatever People Say I Am, That's What I'm Not and their recent Number 1 LP Tranquility Base Hotel & Casino, they've not had any radical style overhauls.

That is until now. The band's lead singer Alex Turner has just changed things up dramatically. After sporting floppy hair in the early stages of his career, a smart slicked back quiff in the early 10s and a long do more recently, the 'Do I Wanna Know?' star has now shocked fans by shaving it all off. No. We are not joking. Alex is now bald.

Alex debuted the new look during a performance of 'Ultracheese' on The Late Show with Steven Colbert.

Check out the new hairstyle here.

Unsurprisingly the internet has thoughts. Here we've gathered the best reactions so far.

Some are mourning his lost locks.

They were beautiful.

Others are confused.

This is a lot to process.

A couple of people have noticed that Alex now bears a striking resemblance to a certain someone.

Petition to get the Arctic Monkeys in the next season of Stranger Things starts now.

He actually resembles a few people now.

No comment.

Stan Twitter is having a field day.


A few fans are even renaming the era.

A historic time.

Then there are those who are just struggling to accept it.

It's a global epidemic.

And finally there are those who are highkey into it.

Each to their own.

As it stands, we're unsure how to feel. We appreciate change but loved his hair.

We will update you as soon as we come to any firm conclusions on the matter.
