Pete Wentz is not afraid of changing up his look: the rocker worked the “emo swoosh,” switched to a close crop and most recently, let his curly locks go au naturale. And Sunday, a day after meeting up with estranged wife Ashlee Simpson, Wentz made yet another switch, posting a picture of himself on his personal site with the caption “tame the mane.” The 31-year-old — who’d let his hair get really high in recent weeks — let his tresses go free in January in order to slash a few minutes from his getting-ready routine. “The amount of maintenance that went into my [straight] hair was ridiculous,” he told PEOPLE. “My son, he’s got this full head of awesome curly hair, and when he gets out of the bath he’s so stoked. I want to get out of the shower and just be stoked, not think about how I don’t want water to touch my hair.” We’re fans of the new look — it’s a little lighter for spring — but we want to know what you think. Tell us: Do you like Wentz’s new cut? Kate Hogan

The haircut is bad. It looks like he got it done at one of those $4.99 barbershops.

If you want a hairdresser’s opinion, he did the right thing. I don’t know how tall he is but desiring great height in a hairstyle usually means he thinks he will appear taller. The person who did this cut might not have taken into account how curly hair shrinks up once it dries sometimes. It’ll look great in a couple weeks. Use something for shine and moisture without being untouchable. Bedhead ‘For Men’ gels are perfect.
