The Geordie Shore star, 28, unveiled his new look on Saturday (2 April) as speculation mounted about his relationship with co-star Charlotte.
Alongside a selfie, the reality TV star teased upcoming projects and explained the new look saying: "Good meeting the boys at #level1 !! Exciting times...
"Ps hair was down couldn't be arsed to do it."
In the snap, Gaz has chosen a brushed forward style in favour of his usual stylised quiff. And fans seemed to like it.
One remarked: "He looks so different."
While another said: "Loll omg!!!! I've never seen his hair like this....aew."
However, plenty of his 2.6million Instagram followers were quick to mention Gary's on/off girlfriend Charlotte.
One told him that Charlotte had unfollowed him, while another implored him to call her.
An admirer of Gaz's tagged Charlotte in the picture, with the message: "You are crazy if you don't get back with him."
Just days ago, Charlotte defended her relationship with Gaz, slamming reports their romance was for show.
She insisted her feelings for him were genuine, and said: "We're in a good place where we do feel ready to try it with each other."
But just hours later, she sparked speculation of a split when she deleted all Instagram photos of the pair amid reports he had propositioned another girl.
Then she vented her feelings on Twitter in a rant aimed directly at her apparent ex.
Charlotte shared a series of tweets with her 2.74 million followers, after Gary decided to respond to the recent reports about him publicly on Snapchat.
She blasted: "I never wanted to talk about this. But would like to thank Gary for splashing it all over his snap chat! Maybe he could of picked up the phone and [explained] it to me while I sat and cried the whole day I found out....or maybe [even] a text would [have] been nice.
"Considering he's meant to 'care' so much about me. But no. [Yeah] thanks for that. Really respectful way of treating some[one]. Maybe my head wouldn't be so f**ked up about the whole situation if he hadn't decided that he wants to go onto @mtvex next week which is a DATING show..."
To which Gary replied: "Sick of always been made out the bad 1 I was ready you weren't... End of!!"
