Stop the presses, it’s time for a PSA — Zac Efron has officially gone blonde. They say that blondes have more fun, so this could be what the 31-year-old is going for with his new look.
The hunky Hollywood heartthrob made a name for himself in the High School Musical movies, but these days, he’s had something of a glow-up to fully embrace his older physique. As one of Tinseltown’s most desirable men, Efron could dye his hair purple and we’d probably be all over him.
Debuting his platinum locks during a rock climbing session, Efron is ‘rocking’ his strong new look. Although his hair is hidden under a beanie, you can definitely see a bright blonde fringe poking out from underneath.
While he looks like a completely different person, I gotta say, I’m here for it. At least he doesn’t look like Draco Malfoy, but even then, he’d presumably be able to pull it off.
Whether the blonde look is for a movie role or Efron just fancied a change remains to be seen. Even if he’s being subtle in embracing his hair at the moment, the Twitterverse wasn’t.

In regards to the hair, some are convinced it’s a wig and we’ve also got to admit it does look a bit strange with his dark beard. Still though, it’s Zac Efron, so you can’t really complain. One fan put it the best when she tweeted, “Oh man, my ovaries just went crazy with that hair colour and facial hair. Sorry…not sorry.” I don’t own a pair of ovaries, but I can imagine how you feel!
Efron has definitely come a long way since playing Troy Bolton in High School Musical to star alongside the likes of Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson, Robert DeNiro, and Hugh Jackman in movies including Baywatch, Dirty Grandpa, and The Greatest Showman.
It’s important to remember that Zac briefly went blonde back in 2016 when he was getting ready for Baywatch and not everyone was a fan. This time, it’s much more dramatic and still dividing the sexy star’s fans. Well, it looks like you’d better get used to it (for now).
Joining the likes of Ryan Gosling, Chris Evans, and those dishy Hemsworth boys, Efron is now in a new category of A-list hairstyles. Hopefully blonde Zac is here to stay, but we’ll just have to wait and see.
