At least this isn’t quite as drastic as when Glee’s Brittany (Heather Morris) tried to shave her head earlier this season.

Glee star Alex Newell (Unique) is now sporting a closely cropped new ‘do which is much shorter then we’re used to seeing him with. Somebody’s ready for summer!

“New cut thanks to @KOstylz!!!” Alex captioned the Instagram photo with a shout-out to his stylist. “Thank you!!”

Whether we see the new look on Glee is a bit uncertain, given that it will be a few months before the show starts filming again for Season 5. So his sides may have grown in by then — or maybe he’ll decide to keep it short!

And even though we won’t see his new look on the Season 4 finale this week, it still figures to be a big episode for Alex. 

Regionals is upon us, which is a big moment for everyone in New Directions — not to mention that the “Katie” mystery will be solved when we find out who is catfishing Ryder, and it seems like she might just end up being Unique. Or do you think it’s someone else?

So do you love Alex’s new haircut? Or are you secretly hoping he goes back to his old look?
