The Island Boys have officially chopped off their iconic hair, opting for a totally new look that’s making fans do a double-take.

Rap duo ‘the Island Boys’ first broke onto the scene late last year after their song of the same name took the internet by storm.

The track became an instant earworm that wiggled its way into everyone’s subconscious, sending the brothers to social media stardom — but not everyone was pleased by this turn of events.

Despite their fame, the two also incurred quite a bit of criticism, notably getting booed at their very first live performance and even finding themselves the target of thrown drinks at Jake Paul’s boxing rematch against Tyron Woodley.

The Island Boys were, until recently, known for their unique hairstyle on top of their viral ‘Island Boy’ song.

Apart from their theme song, another feature that makes the rappers stand out is their appearance — most notably, their myriad of facial tattoos and their unique blonde hairstyle.

In fact, YouTube star Logan Paul asked the duo how they managed to style their hair in such a way, which they said was by using a crocheting hook.
