A country music favorite sports a dramatically different look Instagram/@dierksbentley

For everyone who loved Dierks Bentley’s look early in his career when he was sporting those shaggy, curly locks, here’s hoping for a return to classic Dierks style. Although if the singer has his way, his longer hair might be disappearing again soon in favor of his much shorter style of recent years.

In a clip posted to his Instagram, Dierks wrote, “Time for a haircut” as he and his band warmed up backstage in a dressing room at the Grand Ole Opry. If he tallies the votes cast in his Insta feed though, Dierks will see a lot of folks voting for the return of the luxe curls.

Addressing the camera, Dierks says his head looks like a “hairpiece” and a “damn helmet” as he pats his unruly tresses. But then he smiles and asks, “Like the tie? Like the suit?”
