Finn Wolfhard doesn't look like Mike Wheeler at all with his straight hair.

It's true. Finn Wolfhard has straightened his curly locks and Stranger Things fans can't get over how different his new hair is.

Stranger Things actors have a habit of shocking fans with how they look outside of the show. In most cases, the people who act in the Netflix series have separate styles to the characters they play on-screen. Caleb McLaughlin (Lucas), for example, has a moustache irl, Joe Keery (Steve) recently cut his signature long hair off and David Harbour (Hopper) shaved off his beard after season 3 aired. Essentially, whenever the cast aren't filming they have a chance to change their looks.

Now, Finn Wolfhard (Mike) has joined their ranks and broken the internet by straightening his iconic curly hair.

Taking to Instagram yesterday (Oct 21), Finn posted a selfie showing off his long straightened hairstyle, alongside a photo of Dr. Evil from Austin Powers. Finn didn't caption the photo but it quickly amassed over 2.6 million likes and praise from all of his friends and fans. Caleb McClaughlin commented: "not gonna lie my hair is like that right now" and Vanessa Hudgens added: "yessss hairrr". Meanwhile, Maika Monroe wrote: "This is something special".

Fin also shared a polaroid of him rocking his new straightened hair today (Oct 22) on Instagram. It's currently unclear if Finn straightened his hair for a new role in film or TV or for his own personal style. Either way, we stan.

Finn is currently in the midst of a blockbuster year on screen. As well as starring in Stranger Things 3, Finn also appeared in IT: Chapter Two, The Goldfinch and more recently The Addams Family. Finn will also have lead roles in horror movie The Turning and fantasy comedy Ghostbusters 2020 next year.

Here's hoping that Finn rocks his new hairdo in one of these films or on the red carpet soon. And um, also... what if Mike opts for straight hair in season 4?!

What do you think of Finn Wolfhard's new hairstyle?
