Justin Bieber's new look is a divisive issue among 'Beliebers'.

Justin Bieber is not a fan of his new cornrows.

The 21-year-old Sorry singer debuted the hairdo via his Instagram account on Monday (4Jan16) and in the photograph he shared online, the star is pictured standing next to his rumoured lover Hailey Baldwin and an unidentified woman in a baseball cap.

Both he and Baldwin are sporting the plaited braids in the picture, and Bieber made it clear he was forced to adopt the 'do.

"Hailey made me get corn rows like an absolute douche bag," he lamented in the image caption.

In fact, Bieber is so unhappy with the look, he noted the braids "will be off tomorrow", so fans are unlikely to see him sporting cornrows for an extended period of time.

While professional model Baldwin looked chic and cute in sporty black and white hot pants paired with a bikini top in the Instagram photo, Bieber dressed down in an oversized white shirt and long board shorts created from a textile that resembles a blue sky, complete with white puffy clouds.

Fans have mixed reviews about his look.

"Coming from the guy wearing cloud shorts," one fan quipped in the comments section, with another calling attention to his tattooes: "his leg tats look douchey".

Another was very frank in slamming Bieber's outfit and hair, claiming "this look is so whack" on every level.

One fan became outraged by the cornrows, an ancient African hairstyle, and even accused Bieber of disrespect, writing: "There is something called cultural appropriation and he is using a hair style that in the black culture is used for keeping their f***ing hair tidy, ITS NOT COOL TO USE AS A TREND."
