Former X Factor winner Joe McElderry looked barely recognisable this weekend as he stepped out with a new 90s hairstyle.

Joe, 23, was spotted ahead of a performance in Wales and we almost had to do a double take thanks to his bleached curly barnet.

The Geordie singer's hair is almost bordering on curtains with a shaved undercut, and it's definitely more wavy than we've seen before.

Embracing the summer, Joe teamed a pair of bright red flip-flops with grey turn-up jeans, a striped jumper and aviator sunglasses as he arrived for his gig.

Earlier, he had managed to squeeze in a trip to the beach and had filmed a short video of himself and the view for his Instagram fans. In the clip, Joe is all smiles while paddling his feet in the sea.

The former Jump contestant was in Llandudno as part of his 'Set Your Soul Alive Tour' and took to the stage at the seaside town's Venue Cymru.
