Shawn Mendes Shaved His Head For A Very Simple Reason

After going by a breakup on the finish of 2021, Shawn Mendes adopted within the footsteps of many single folks earlier than him, and underwent what regarded like a little bit of a drastic haircut earlier this yr.

But Mendes’ reasoning for the brand new look throughout a transformative interval of his life was really fairly easy.

“I think everyone should know what they look like with a shaved head,” the “Wonder” crooner informed the WSJ. journal in an interview printed for the outlet’s “My Monday Morning” collection.

“I also was just feeling this urge to just shake myself up a little bit,” the singer added.

“After speaking with my team and health professionals, I need to take some time to heal and take care of myself and my mental health, first and foremost,” the singer mentioned on the time.

Just just a few weeks later, he canceled his tour in its entirety ― one thing he informed WSJ. Magazine was “very difficult” to do on the time.

“It’s been a lot of work, but I think the last year and a half has been the most eye-opening and growing and beautiful and just healing process of my life,” he mentioned.

“I’m also really grateful for all the people that were so accepting and loving and kind and understanding, Mendes added. “And it just really made me see how culture is really starting to get to a place where mental health is really becoming a priority.”
