LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA: It appears Shawn Mendes has finally chosen to experiment with his looks as the 'Mercy' hitmaker was seen rocking a buzz cut while stepping out in Los Angeles on Saturday, January 7. The 24-year-old singer debuted his New Year's brand-new haircut while out for breakfast and a coffee run with friends at the popular LA coffee shop, Verve Coffee.

Mendes showed off his freshly trimmed head and sported a casual and comfortable look in a loose-fitting cardigan with a grey scarf around his neck. He also wore a white T-shirt and Calvin Klein boxers with blue trousers and paired the outfit with black Birkenstock sandals and white socks. The 'Stitches' singer carried a reusable bottle tucked under his arm as he was seen leaving the coffee place. Mendes has been sporting his signature medium-length thick curls ever since his music debut in 2013. While the singer is used to cutting his hair short or growing it long enough to tie it into a bun, this is his first time trying something entirely new.

Back in October 2014, Mendes tweeted about getting a buzz cut, however, he did not appear to be a fan of the idea even in the slightest. "Had a dream someone buzzed all my hair off, freaked a lil haha," he wrote.

The edgy shaved-off look could be a very recent decision as only a week ago the 'Treat You Better' singer was seen sporting his trademark curls in a video of himself taking a dip in the snow on the side of a river. In the video shared on December 26, 2022, Mendes can be seen taking deep breaths before ditching his brown sweater only to be left with a pair of black boxers. He then walks into the stream and submerges himself in the ice-cold water for the 'polar bear plunge.' Mendes screams, "Whoo! It's cold!" after lowering himself into the rushing waves to absorb the full experience. The clip concluded right after Mendes confesses that he "can't feel a thing" and puts his winter clothes back on. He captioned the clip, saying, "MERRY CHRISTMAS."

The Grammy nominee was in the headline in November 2021, after his split from Camila Cabello. An insider told E! News that it was the ‘In My Blood’ singer who "initiated" the breakup talk which left Cabello "very upset over the split." However, she later "agreed" that they ought to separate.
