The hottest thing at the Balmain show in Paris? The newly-dyed blonds sitting in the front row. Not only did Kim Kardashian West go platinum, but Jared Leto also debuted a bleached do — just days after chopping all his hair off (and leaving the rest of us to deal with our emotions).

Leto cut off his famous ombré, chest-length strands in preparation for his role as The Joker in the upcoming film Suicide Squad. (He also shaved his beard.) At first he was just sporting a short cut, his brunette mane untouched. But the actor has been gradually evolving his look, showing up at Paris Fashion Week with a totally bleach-blond mane. The cut appears to be shorter (almost shaved) on the sides and longer on top. (Yes, he’s also wearing a white turtleneck at the show. The Karl Lagerfeld is strong with this one.)
Hairstylist Chase Kusero has been the man behind all of Leto’s big hair moments, and has been Instagramming the whole time. Which leads us to believe the next step in his green hair transformation for the Joker role, thanks to this teaser pic below.
