There are many reasons for the huge success of Netflix’s Stranger Things. But one which can’t be denied is the attention to detail of the characters’ costumes. The sense that we really are in a 1980s small-town lends the fantastical sci-fi an element of reality that’s essential to us suspending our disbelief when it comes to the upside-down. And one essential element of this? The characters’ hair.
But while taking a break between filming for the show’s fourth season, actor, Joe Keery, who plays beloved jock, Steve Harrington, took a deviation from his usual look. He switched out his signature ’80s mullet for a shorter look with some particularly controversial bangs – and the internet wasn’t too pleased.
Luckily for Steve stans, though, it seems the look was just a temporary change, as the latest images of the actor suggest his hair is heading back to normal. Phew.
