Channing Tatum has dyed his hair blonde.

Channing Tatum is known for many things. First things first he was a '00s heartthrob (Dear John, Step Up and She's the Man all still slap), then he transitioned into more critically acclaimed roles (he was nominated for numerous prestigious awards for his performance in Foxcatcher) and last but not least there's Magic Mike (iconic). However, he is now taking over Instagram thanks to his new hairstyle.

Taking to Instagram stories, last night (Mar 20), Channing shared a photo of his brand new hairdo writing: "Bad idea? Haha". The haircut is a blonde buzzcut, which isn't that controversial. However, given that Channing has almost always stayed true to his brunette roots in the past, it's understandable that some fans are a bit shook. Not only that but in his previous posts he had a full head of hair.

Channing also posted the photo alongside a simple yes or no poll and, while 58% of his followers voted yes, a massive 42% of them have voted no. Channing seems to have taken all of the differing opinions in his stride though. Shortly after sharing the selfie he posted another Instagram story writing, "Well, bad ideas are sort of my thing. So...." Yes, Channing is rocking his new do... periodt.


It is currently unclear if Channing got a buzzcut and dyed his hair blonde for a new role or for himself but, either way, it's his hair to style as he pleases. Plus when you're Channing Tatum you can get away with pretty much any hairstyle.

What do you think? Are you a fan of the new haircut?
