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?

He looks hot!! Very hot!

Clay can wear his hair anyway he wants. Just let him sing to me!!! Lasting appeal comes from the talent and personality. Clay has both of these traits in aces!!!

toni on

One word…………SCARY!!!!!!

Cindy on

Gorgeous – the cut flatters him, and the color is perfect. And the guy can wear a suit! YUM!!!!

My opinion is that a man has to be pretty confident of his own masculinity not to give a darn what all the haters and naysayers will think and say. Mr Aiken was due for a change in his appearance from his American Idol days and his new hair cut accomplished that and created a buzz that is obviously still being talked about as evidenced by this poll. He’s a handsome man period and no matter what hair cut or style he has you can’t hide that fact.

Clay’s new look is a 180 from his AI days. Have to say that once I got over the shock of the new look, I was impressed. Clay looks very handsome indeed! I love it!

I think he looks great with the new haircut!

A bit puzzled by the description in your commentary though because this longer style is what most guys his age and even older, seem to be wearing (including many in the entertainment business, btw). Is Clay the only man that has to be frozen in the styles of 3 years past?

He is such a cutie . This new look is awesome . Trendy and hot . No matter what , the voice is to die for .

sabrina on

WOW! I LOVE the new look. Very hot.

I kinda like the new hair if it’s not in his beautiful eyes. I liked the spike do, too. But I really love the the
Elvis look he had for the Jukebox tour. Even recently at the Star Search Gala, he was very hot with his present cut
pushed back out of his eyes. But his hair doesn’t really matter, it’s the VOICE!!!
