JUSTIN Bieber has shaved off his dreadlocks after weeks of getting slammed for "cultural appropriation".
The Lonely singer, 27, showed off his new buzzcut while posing for a selfie with wife Hailey Baldwin on Sunday.

Justin sparked backlash last month when he debuted his dreadlocks on Instagram, with critics urging him to "educate himself" on Black culture.
One wrote: "It's really disappointing to see you with dreads, I thought you educated yourself."
Another added: "Justin baby… what in the world. No sir."
A following person wrote: "Didn't you say you were educating yourself about Black culture so what is this foolery."
Justin was also accused of appropriating Black culture in 2016 when he had cornrows.
The singer showed off his 'do in a photo on vacation with Hailey at the time, writing: "Hailey made me get corn rows like an absolute douche bag, these will be off tomorrow trust me Danny."
Backin 2015, he also defended Kylie Jenner after she was blasted for wearing her hair in cornrows.
He clapped back at critics for "blasting a 17 year old kid for wearing braids".
Meanwhile, back in March, Justin credited Hailey for saving him when he was in "a really bad place" last year.
As part of an exclusive playback session to mark the launch of his sixth album Justice, the star revealed the last 12 months have brought a host of behind-the-scenes challenges which saw him become “unstable."
In a gushing tribute to Hailey, he explained: “One of the tracks on the album is called Unstable, and for me it’s a really emotional song because I was in a really, really bad place — maybe a year ago.
"Fortunately my wife was just there for me through it all and so the whole message of the song is ‘You loved me when I was unstable.'
“She really held me down and, you know, just continued to love me through a really challenging, hard season that I’d been in — so the person in the song, that was me.
The couple are known for their PDA when they're spotted out and often cuddle up and kiss on social media.
