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

Bo is awesome, the best year AI ever had was when he and Carrie Underwood were the final two…AI needs to go back and look at where they were back then and what they have done to the show now…
It’s just not the same , the talent keeps going down hill, remember that night that Bo sung that song without music and the spotlight coming down on him , wow what a production, I thought that I was at a real rock performance …Please find another Bo and Carrie. Also I hope that with this album he will be able to really use his beautiful and unique voice, the first album didn’t do this and I don’t think that the idol producers got behind him and stayed with him to build his star status…hoping this time will be a new beginning for this talented man . By the way the hair does look great and very stylish.
Either way , it is all about the talent and He has IT!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Can’t wait for Bo’s new CD!! LOVE the haircut, too. I agree with someone upthread, Bo looks great no matter what length his hair is!

LOVE IT! I’m a hairdresser so anything sexier and healthier looking is awesome. To me it also looks like he had a few subtle highlights around his face too. Guy color is IN!

Bo Rocks! As a member of the original “bice squad” I am soooo excited about the new look and the new music!

Bo Bice is underappreciated. His last CD rocked, i bought it and I’m glad I did! Whatever length his hair is doesn’t matter, the content is what is important so as long as he keeps making music like his last album, he’s got me for a fan!
