EXCLUSIVE: Bo Bice Cuts His Long Locks

On American Idol, Bo Bice was known for his rockin’ covers, mellow mood and, of course, extra-long locks. But with a new album, 3, due out May 18th — not to mention three young sons at home — the singer has decided to change things up a bit with newly shoulder-length locks. “I have a new project with a new style of music, incorporating more country elements,” he tells PEOPLE.com. “With all these new aspects going on in my career, it was just another thing that I felt needed a bit of change.” So Bice chopped his lengthy hair, cutting off five inches recently. And that’s not his first cut, having previously chopped off 10 inches a little bit before that, donating the hair to Locks of Love. Bo explains of the two cuts, “It was a gradual change for this long-haired countryboy.” For fans who worry the haircut signifies major changes for the singer, fear not; he assures PEOPLE.com that it’s just “new music, new look,” but the “same Bo Bice.” Tell us: What do you think of Bo’s new shoulder-length do? — Kate Hogan

This is soooo much better than the long hair, which was much too scraggly. He is very handsome and the hair cut only enhances his looks:)

[…] -Bo Bice is going more country on his next album out May 18, a smart move for a Southern rocker when Southern rock is a bit niche. He talks to people.com. […]

Bo is always great looking and the new hair cut just makes him look better. Am looking forward to a new release from Bo. Hope he performs on AI this season.

This is sooo great!!! I love the new look. It’s about time. His singing was so great but his look was so outdated!

Thank you, People for the update, and incredibly gorgeous picture of Bo. His new look is hot! I’ve loved him since his time on AI, and will love him and his music regardless of the direction he takes. He is beautiful inside and out, and I wish him the very best.
