Dear Penn Badgley, We Love Your Haircut

We were always Dan Humphrey fans. For most of Gossip Girl, the guy was sweet, sexy and sensible — at least in comparison to his Upper East Side pals.

But then his hair got, well, kinda crazy. Actor Penn Badgley let his look go a bit in 2012, slowly transforming from Gossip Girl prepster into shaggy hipster dude. Sorry to say, Penn, seeing your head curls compete with your chest curls was kind of a turn-off — though we still held a (small) candle for you.

However, we’re happy to say our prayers have been answered: We just saw a photo of Badgley this week and his hair is short and sexy again! The actor reportedly ditched his curly ‘do after Gossip Girl wrapped, though this is the first official pic we’ve seen. And keep looking at. Because we’re so excited about the look. And the facial scruff.

Now that Gossip Girl is over, we’ll be interested to see where the actor takes his hair — and, we suppose, his career. But for now, we’re hoping he keeps this look, because it’s working. Really working. Tell us: How do you prefer Badgley’s hair: long or short?

I think he’s hot either way. I didn’t think the long curls were as bad as the puffball look, though.
