EXCLUSIVE: Bo Bice Cuts His Long Locks

On American Idol, Bo Bice was known for his rockin’ covers, mellow mood and, of course, extra-long locks. But with a new album, 3, due out May 18th — not to mention three young sons at home — the singer has decided to change things up a bit with newly shoulder-length locks. “I have a new project with a new style of music, incorporating more country elements,” he tells PEOPLE.com. “With all these new aspects going on in my career, it was just another thing that I felt needed a bit of change.” So Bice chopped his lengthy hair, cutting off five inches recently. And that’s not his first cut, having previously chopped off 10 inches a little bit before that, donating the hair to Locks of Love. Bo explains of the two cuts, “It was a gradual change for this long-haired countryboy.” For fans who worry the haircut signifies major changes for the singer, fear not; he assures PEOPLE.com that it’s just “new music, new look,” but the “same Bo Bice.” Tell us: What do you think of Bo’s new shoulder-length do? — Kate Hogan

Love his new look – loved his old look – loved him on Idol – have not watched Idol since Bo lost – can’t wait for the new album – glad he is doing great with his wife/3 children/career.

Bice showed great potential on Idol. His first Album rocked! It was his best IMHO. He lost me on the last album when he headed down that country road. I was hoping for a more Leppardesque career. Hair, short hair, no hair, fine either way. He would have made a great face for the Resugence of Rock, alas, it was not to be.

I don’t know who looks goofier, Bo or Bucky. Glad at least one of them got a hair cut and can make their own music to sing unlike Bucky.
