Stranger Things star Joe Keery got a hair cut and the internet is really not enjoying this latest development.
Joe Keery’s hair is its own character in Stranger Things and has become an iconic part of the Netflix series, with many characters bringing up his hair. In the second season of Stranger Things, Joe Keery’s character Steve Harrington goes into excruciating detail about his hair-routine, which also got quite heavily memed. Now that his long hair is gone, its slightly jarring (or terrifying if you ask Twitter) to see Joe Keery.
You can check out some reactions from Twitter below.

Here is Joe Keery’s haircut in motion for those curious to see how it looks on video. I feel like this is a real service I’m providing and my mom would be proud. Or maybe his hairstylist would be? Anyway smart move maybe since he has an album dropping tonight, “Twenty Twenty” https://t.co/ufvmi39H95 pic.twitter.com/qXOWdtlk16

The internet should learn by now that you learn more from disappointment than success, especially when it comes to Joe Keery’s hair. There’s no word on how Joe Keery’s lack of hair will affect his role in Stranger Things as, all jokes aside, it was a very iconic trait for the character. Maybe it will become a plot point for the upcoming season? When we last saw Steve Harrington, he was suffering an identity crisis and shying away from materialistic and superficial objects and morals. Perhaps by stripping away his hair, he can finally realize that there’s more to him than his looks? Or maybe we’re just looking too deep into this.
A fourth season of Stranger Things hasn’t been officially announced but it’s a safe bet that the crew from Hawkins will make their way back onto Netflix, seeing as it is one of the streaming service’s most watched shows. Or maybe it’ll get canceled because Joe Keery decided to be selfish and get rid of his hair! We’ll keep you updated!
Joe Keery was last seen in Stranger Things 3. Here’s the official synopsis:
“It’s 1985 in Hawkins, Indiana, and summer’s heating up. School’s out, there’s a brand new mall in town, and the Hawkins crew are on the cusp of adulthood. Romance blossoms and complicates the group’s dynamic, and they’ll have to figure out how to grow up without growing apart. Meanwhile, danger looms. When the town’s threatened by enemies old and new, Eleven and her friends are reminded that evil never ends; it evolves. Now they’ll have to band together to survive, and remember that friendship is always stronger than fear.”
Stranger Things stars Winona Ryder, David Harbour, Finn Wolfhard, Millie Bobby Brown, Gaten Matarazzo, Caleb McLaughlin, Noah Schnapp, Sadie Sink, Natalia Dyer, Charlie Heaton, Joe Keery, Dacre Montgomery, Maya Hawke, Priah Ferguson, and Cara Buono.
Stranger Things 3 is now available on Netflix. Stay tuned for the latest news on Joe Keery and the future of the Netflix series!
