Tell Us: What Do You Think of Clay's New Look?

09/15/2006 at 09:12 AM ET

Clay Aiken’s got a new album, A Thousand Different Ways, dropping on Tuesday, but let’s face it: What everyone’s talking about is his makeover! We’re used to seeing a fresh-faced, spiky-haired Clay Aiken, but on the finale of American Idol, Clay premiered his new "I’m a downtown-hipster" shaggy ‘do.  Judging by his album art, this is the look he’s going to be working for a while. But this new k.d. lang-meets-disaffected-myspacer image just looks a little forced to us. Tell us what you think: Is Clay’s new look an improvement? Or do you prefer the old hair?

I think he looks a littl girly.

I think the new look is so much better. He looks more hip and totally HOT.

Sometimes I like the hair, other times I don’t. There are some pictures, like the one on the CD cover, that are uber-hot. But then there are some where he looks too feminine, and way too young! The hair definitely looks better with stubble on his face! But his smile lights up a room and he sings better than anyone on the planet, so who really cares!

I have always thought he was a nice looking guy but I like his new look better than the spikes.

Clay looks beautiful, and sings even better. Go to Clear Channel website to preview his new album.

The new look is gorgeous. Clay is a very handsome man and this makes him look his age (YOUNG) and is very appealing. I just love it!!

Kelly on

He looks great. The spikes were fun for a while but he’s grown past them and he looks young and hip. Good luck to him in ever making some people happy.

Love the new look. Same wonderful, talented man, just different wrapping. He looks great!!!!!!!!!!

Diana on

I WISH I had hair as nice. Clay can wear almost any style.

Marie on

Oh God, thank you the spikey hair is gone. That was an AI creation, was not Clay at all. The “new” Clay is more the real Clay. Clothes with clean, classy lines. No fuss hair. He looks So hot! He’s a very handsome man, the look before detracted from it.
