Pete Wentz's Curly Hair: Love it or Hate it?

It looks like Pete Wentz is kicking off 2011 with a wild new look. The usually coiffed singer stepped out on Monday rocking his natural curls during a press preview of the North American International Auto Show in Detroit. He once told PEOPLE that doing his hair is no piece of cake, so it’s no surprise he needed a little break from the constant styling. “Here’s the thing about hair; I think most people think that I have Lego hair, like I can just take it on and off in one piece, and that’s not quite the case — although pretty close,” he said, adding “I refer to this [phenomenon] as Lego hair, when people think that about me.” Perhaps Pete’s change was inspired by wife Ashlee Simpson-Wentz, who recently debuted a new do as well. And while we think his natural and slightly frizzy style is a nice departure from Pete’s usual perfectly-placed locks, we want to know what you think. Tell us: Do you love Pete’s natural curls or prefer his hair straight? –Kim Peiffer

It’s funny that the first thing I thought was a Jonas Bro and I see others say the same thing.

Jonas Brother + James Van Der Beek! It might not be so bad if it was just on top. The sides are crazy!

Tiffany on

Look its another Jonas Brother!

‘Curly’ would NOT be the adjective that I would use in describing his hair. Frizzy is what I would call it. If I had his hair type, I would either let it grow into long dreads, or just cut it very close to the scalp and sport some facial stubble.

Bobbie on

It’s his natural hair his mother is Polynesian.
