Bachelor 16 Ben Flajnik’s floppy brown hair has always had their own following — his mane even has its own Twitter handle! — but the vineyard owner took us all by surprise this week when he totally switched things up. How so? Let’s just say that Ben showed off a very ‘80s rock star-inspired look. And if that sounds crazy, it sort of was!

Ben’s been keeping a relatively low profile these days, ever since he publicly dissed ex and Season 16 winner Courtney Robertson for her juicy tell-all book. While Courtney’s book has been climbing up the New York Times bestseller chart, ol’ Flapjacks appears to be focused on the simple life with his new live-in girlfriend, Stephanie Winn. But what was going on with his hair this week was anything but simple!

The 31-year-old took to Instagram to share the wild snap, wearing stunner shades and a —gasp! — spiky blonde hairdo. Seriously, the former Bachelor looks totally unrecognizable! Ben simply captioned the photo, “Rod Stewart.” Ha! Spot on, dude.

Of course, we’re guessing that more than likely this is a wig. We’re not sure exactly why he’s wearing it, but it sure looks like he’s having a good time. Now that mustache, on the other hand, we’re not too sure about…

What do you think of Ben’s wild look? Sound off in the comments below!
