Ever since the very first time the video for "Baby" hit TV screens years ago, Justin Bieber's hair has been in the headlines almost as frequently as the star himself. Yesterday on Instagram, the Biebs posted a photo of what he considered to be his "funny hair phase," which left us pondering—what do you mean? To be fair, the swept-back look showcased below looks pretty tame compared to some of the recent cut and color work we've seen him rocking.

Bieber has come a long way since the brow-skimming cut he wore during his start in 2009. When he tried out a boyband-era center part, his hair sparked a debate between '90s heartthrobs Nick Carter and Devon Sawa over who officially started the trend, and even Lena Dunham saw similarities between Bieber's look and her pixie cut. Considering that the star is currently a platinum blonde, we can only guess what he plans to try out next.
