The 27-year-old — whose character Steve Harrington is known for his long, gravity-defying brown hair — caused a stir among fans after recently ditching his signature locks and debuting a blunt bowl cut and bangs during New York Fashion Week in mid-September.
“People are very attached to your haircut, did you expect the reaction?,” a red carpet interviewer from “Entertainment Tonight” asked Keery at the recent New York Comic Con. “You showed up with the bangs on the red carpet and people were like, ‘Is Steve Harrington coming back?’”
“It’s just a regular person getting a haircut,” he replied.
The hairstyle seems to be taking over Hollywood, as celebs like Timothée Chalamet, Charlize Theron and Harry Styles have all recently made the chop.
