In the past, Aaron sported a clean-cut style. But now, he’s seemingly opted for something completely different. As fans could see, the sides of Aaron’s hair were left mostly untouched, save for the bleaching that his natural strawberry blonde ‘do received. The singer’s new braids were mostly on the crown of Aaron’s head, and they were long enough to pass far beyond his shoulders! Take a look at the before image below compared to his new ‘do above.
Aaron’s new look comes just months after some major personal triumphs and pitfalls. In April 2020, Aaron revealed that his on-again, off-again girlfriend, Melanie Martin was three-weeks pregnant. Aaron was incredibly excited about the prospect of becoming a father, sharing in an interview, “I want to be a good dad. I’m focused, my music career has been doing really well, and touring, having my clothing line out, all that stuff I have going for me that isn’t necessarily just music. Family is most important to me.”
That same month, Aaron revealed that he and Melanie got engaged! “Love wins,” Aaron captioned a sweet photo, which featured Melanie, who was previously arrested for an alleged domestic violence incident, showing off her gorgeous engagement ring. There have definitely been a lot of changes in Aaron’s life as of late, including his hairdo!
