Ben Affleck's new hairGSI Media

He’s a doting dad, a husband and a successful producer, but Ben Affleck is showing he can still be young and hip despite his mature demeanor. The actor traded in his signature dad look for some longer, flat-ironed locks — but his rep tells PEOPLE that the change is for his role in the new movie Argo. But Affleck is figuring out how to work the look in real life, pairing the hipster-esque hair with a striped shirt, cotton trousers and trainers while out in Santa Monica over the weekend. He’s not the first male star to try straight, long locks: Zac Efron is know for this slicked-down look; Pete Wentz once dabbled in the straight hair trend; and let’s not forget Justin Bieber, the godfather of flat-ironed hair. Since the change is just temporary for Affleck, maybe we’ll see him return to the more tousled style he worked earlier this month. Regardless, we wonder what wife Jennifer Garner thinks about his new look! Tell us: What do you think of Affleck’s new do?Kim Peiffer

Is it just me or is this a preview of Justin Bieber when he finally hits puberty?

Wow – what a bunch of snobs here. I love the new look – WTG Ben! Who says you have to always look your age? It’s fun to go crazy once in a while – you guys should try it sometime.
