His glam rock look is already edgy, but Glee’s Elliott “Starchild” (Adam Lambert) Gilbert is preparing to switch up his style once again. Adam is currently at work filming Season 5, Episode 9: “Frenemies,” and the American Idol fan favorite just took to Instagram to show off his brand new look.

On November 25, Adam posted this photo, which highlights his new hair style. The singer’s dark locks are now a vibrant shade of cinnamon brown, and the back and sides of his hair have been shaved. (Granted, his hair was cut pretty short on the sides before. But it does appear to have gotten even more of a trim.)

“Hair Kut. Cinnamon Spice,” he wrote. It’s quite the change! In fact, the new ‘do looks very much like an edgier, more rock star version of Kurt’s (Chris Colfer) hair style.

During Episode 9 — which Fox recently announced will air on February 25 instead of later this spring as originally planned — Elliott and Kurt will face off as one of the episodes titular pairs of frenemies. They’ll also be dueting (while simultaneously pole dancing) to The Darkness’s “I Believe in a Thing Called Love,” which has some pretty straightforward sexual overtones.

Elliott’s shocking new hair cut will likely come at the tail end of “Frenemies,” since the cast has been filming the episode already for a while now. Thanks to a tweet from Lea Michele, we know that she and Adam filmed a scene together this morning, though it’s unclear whether Adam’s haircut happened before or after the day’s Glee filming wrapped.

Are you excited about Elliott’s new ‘do, or did you like his old look better? Take to the comments and sound off.
