It’s not only famous women who surprise us with their dramatic beauty changes — once in a while, Hollywood’s leading men also try to spice things up. This time around, it was Channing Tatum who underwent a substantial hair transformation of his own, chopping off his brown locks in exchange for a bleached blond buzzed ‘do. The post caused quite a stir, with some comparing his new look to rapper Eminem.

Tatum posted the snap on Instagram stories, where he asked his followers whether or not the change was a “bad idea.” Unfortunately for the actor, it looked like there were plenty of “yes” votes. Oops. Not to worry though, because according to Tatum, bad ideas are totally his thing.

This isn’t the first time the Magic Mike star has had a close crop. He also sported a shaved head when he modeled for Puff Daddy‘s line Sean Jean in 2003.
Coincidentally, Tatum’s girlfriend Jessie J also had a similar haircut six years ago when she shaved her head for charity. We can confirm, both look equally as glamorous with little to no hair.

6 years ago I shaved my head live on TV for charity. ❤️ The children I met through out the process of learning and seeing first hand where the money would go that would instantly help with medical and emotional support for hundreds of people. (Kids and young adults) was inspiring beyond belief. I still do so much for charity but behind closed doors. It’s about helping. It’s about giving back without getting anything back. I am forever inspired by those staying positive whilst fighting for their lives, everyday ❤️ and I think of the beautiful rays of light that are no longer with us everyday. You are the reason I always keep going. Thinking of you all! ✨ Thank you @alishadobson for shaving my head and doing my hair for 8 years this year 😳🥳
And what was Twitter’s reaction to the ‘do? Varied, as per usual.

Whether you love it or hate it, get used to it y’all, because Channing’s hair is here to stay. Just kidding, it’s hair and will presumably grow back.
