Ricky Martin Just Revealed a Shocking New Look

"When bored, bleach," the 49-year-old singer said.

Sometimes, you plan a new hairstyle far in advance. Sometimes, you jump right in with a new look, as anyone who has cut their own bangs would tell you. And it appears that a certain singer is the type of person who is willing to try a style without giving it too much thought. On Thursday, Ricky Martin bleached his beard. Why? He was bored.

"When bored, bleach," Martin captioned a new Instagram photo of himself on a beach, showing off his new look.

To be clear, it doesn't seem like Martin headed into the bathroom and achieved the look by himself. The 49-year-old pop star tagged the owner of HOY Salon, Otto Giovanni Ramos, and one of its stylists, Yazmín Santiago, in his Instagram.

Read on to see Martin's new look and to see some other celebs who recently updated their hairstyles. And for another star who looks totally different these days, check out "America's Got Talent" Winner Grace VanderWaal Is Unrecognizable Now.
