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

the hair looks dirty and he needs a shave. UNKEMPT is the word for this look

Punky on

I don’t like it that dark, his hair has always been light brown. It’s not a total bust in my opinion.

IRA on

as usual, he is goofy,ridiculous and moronic looking. But it was Damon that made Ben. Affleck is fading fast but not as fast as I’d like to see. Good night Ben

His hair is not the issue. He just needs to shave. He’s a classically handsome man, but the scruff’s gotta go.

Jacklyn on

You all are dumb, it clearly states that the do is for a role in a new movie!

Jeff on
