Penn Badgley, 30, looked nearly unrecognizable when he stepped out at Miami’s Art Basel with his band Mothxr for a performance. Gone are the days of Penn’s dark brown curls. His hair is now platinum blonde! For the performance, his hair was spiked in a mohawk-type style. The look totally gives him an edgy vibe.
His dark brown beard shows just how drastic the platinum blonde look is on him. Blake Lively’s ex has trimmed his beard to flaunt his incredible jawline. We are loving it. Penn’s hair was nearly to his shoulders back in Sept. 2016. He must have wanted a dramatic new look!
Penn admitted in an interview that the reason for his evolution into an edgier look is because of Gossip Girl. “The whole Gossip Girl thing, that is an experience unto itself that any person needs to decompress from, and I’ve been doing that. That’s why I look like this,” he told Huffington Post back in March 2016. This was way before he dyed his hair blonde!
Penn has primarily focused on his music career ever since Gossip Girl ended in 2012. While he is grateful for his acting career, his true love has always been music. “This was always an intention of mine,” he said in the interview. “It’s not forced. It’s not something that I’ve been incredibly conscious or precious or deliberate about. It was obviously going to happen.”
