These days, Bachelorette 8 runner-up Arie Luyendyk, Jr. sports a perfectly-coiffed head of black hair. But back in the day, would you believe that the studly charmer was actually a blond?
 
On January 16, Bachelor Nation’s resident kiss expert tweeted this throwback photo. “Here's a little gem from the early 90's..” he wrote. “ #winning #longhairdontcare #trophy

 

From the looks of this photo, we’d say that race car driver Arie got his start at a young age — and it appears that he managed to rack up plenty of wins!

Honestly, we’re kind of digging teenage Arie’s long head of lustrous blond locks. Not enough to recommend he bleach his hair or anything. But as far as retro hairstyles go? It’s not bad.
