Shawn Mendes Welcomes 2023 With a Buzz Cut

Shawn Mendes is the latest celebrity to go super short with their hair in 2023. On Jan. 7, the singer was spotted leaving a coffee shop with a friend, and his shaggy brunette hair was cropped into a buzz cut.

Closely shaven on the sides, teetering on the edge of a fade, and shaped in the front to accentuate Mendes's bone structure, the haircut also shows off his widow's peak. Save for his natural hair color, the singer looked like a totally different person. "I think everyone should know what they look like with a shaved head," the singer said in a recent interview with WSJ. Magazine. "I also was just feeling this urge to just shake myself up a little bit." Mendes paired the new cut with a relaxed outfit that consisted of a loosely tied scarf, sweatpants, a white shirt, and a cardigan.

Mendes is the latest on a long list of celebrities who have chosen buzz cuts as their hairstyle of choice. Others include Chase Stokes, Shiloh Jolie-Pitt, and Saweetie. If you're looking for celebrity inspiration for your own potential makeover, you have plenty.

A buzz cut is without a doubt one of the edgier haircuts that you can get, but if you want something equally bold without losing your length, cuts like the "bixie," "jellyfish," and layered shag pack just as much of a punch. Still, it looks like 2023 is shaping up to be the year that buzz cuts reign supreme. If you're still undecided, allow a closer look at Mendes's new style to convince you.
