Dear Penn Badgley,
We are begging you to cut your hair. Not only are your fans wondering what’s going on with the long, curly mess that you’re currently sporting, but jokes about your locks have even made it into the Gossip Girl script, including an awesome jab from Blair (“Seriously, you should cut it already…”).
We know your character Dan Humphrey is trying to be a respected author now that his book Inside is doing well, and that a Brooklyn hipster isn’t one to be spotted with a clean-cut hairstyle, but we promise you’ll have better luck with the ladies (and in life!) if you take our advice and fix that hair!
Because we love you, we’ve even put together some options using the InStyle virtual makeover tool that you can take to your hair stylist for inspiration. Check it out below.
Gossip Girl fans (and all human beings)
Adam Lambert's Shaggy 'DoPenn could dye his hair black and grow it long with wispy layers for a rocking style.
Justin Bieber's Former MopProbably some of the most famous locks out there, Penn could take a cue from Justin Bieber's hair, growing it longer, straightening it, and letting it fall in his face.
Brad Pitt's Sexy StylePenn could look at Hollywood It Guy Brad Pitt and cut his hair short, adding subtle highlights.
Chace Crawford's Bed HeadHis Gossip Girl co-star Chace Crawford could be an inspiration, too. But beware, Penn: this "I didn't do anything to it" look actually takes time.
Donald Trump's Frump StyleNot everyone can pull of the Donald's look, but if Penn really wanted to do it, he'd have to dye his hair blonde and let it grow into a mini 'fro.
Robert Pattinson's Vampire HairPenn could use the Twilight star's locks as inspiration. He'll just need to grow a widow's peak.
Taylor Lautner's Vintage LocksAll Penn would have to do to get a look similar to Taylor Lautner's is straighten it, cut it a little shorter and style it a little higher than normal for a dapper look.
George Clooney's Distinguished 'DoIf Penn really wanted respect, he could salt-and-pepper his hair a' la George Clooney and go for this more mature look.
