UPDATE: Ben Affleck Tries a New Do

Ben Affleck's new hairGSI Media

He’s a doting dad, a husband and a successful producer, but Ben Affleck is showing he can still be young and hip despite his mature demeanor. The actor traded in his signature dad look for some longer, flat-ironed locks — but his rep tells PEOPLE that the change is for his role in the new movie Argo. But Affleck is figuring out how to work the look in real life, pairing the hipster-esque hair with a striped shirt, cotton trousers and trainers while out in Santa Monica over the weekend. He’s not the first male star to try straight, long locks: Zac Efron is know for this slicked-down look; Pete Wentz once dabbled in the straight hair trend; and let’s not forget Justin Bieber, the godfather of flat-ironed hair. Since the change is just temporary for Affleck, maybe we’ll see him return to the more tousled style he worked earlier this month. Regardless, we wonder what wife Jennifer Garner thinks about his new look! Tell us: What do you think of Affleck’s new do?Kim Peiffer

Glad the hair is for the movie, hope he chops it off after shooting the film.

Did the few of you below me actually READ the story or just see the picture and run with it? Had you read the story you would know that the hair style is for a movie, NOT because he decided one morning to grow his hair out like a 16 year old.

So, I’m pretty sure THAT is “what he was thinking” and because of that, he’s most likely “looked in a mirror” or two.
