Noah Centineo has a "secret aspiration" to bring back one of the hottest hairstyles of the 2010s.

During Wednesday's episode of the The Late Late Show with James Corden, the To All the Boys I've Loved Before actor, 24, revealed why he's been growing out his hair for the last few months.

 "When did this happen? Is this a quarantine thing?" Corden, 42, asked.

"No, weirdly it has nothing to do with quarantine and everything to do with me being unemployed," Centineo joked, adding, "I have this secret aspiration where I actually want to be able to do a man bun because I've never done it before."

"I think you've got to have a certain face for a man bun, and let me tell you, you've got one," Corden told the heartthrob, who quipped, "Takes one to know one."

"Nooo, me with a man bun? That's a man on the brink of a breakdown," the talk show host said. "If you see me with a man bun, you will know I'm going through a divorce and I'm not seeing my kids at the moment."

From 2012-2015, everyone from Leonardo DiCaprio and Bradley Cooper, to Justin Bieber and Chris Hemsworth rocked the laidback trend. Centineo hasn't entered ponytail territory just yet, but he has experimented with other drastic hair transformations.

In 2019, the star shocked fans when he debuted a buzz cut in a smiley selfie on his Instagram Story.

"I'm right here," Centineo captioned the snap, wearing a navy blue T-shirt teamed with a black leather watch.

In a second Instagram Story shared a few hours later, a shirtless Centineo flashed a grin before flipping the camera around to film his cat drinking from the sink.

The actor made no mention of his new 'do, but his fans and followers noticed immediately.

"First Charlie Puth then Austin Mahone then Tom Holland and now Noah Centineo," one user wrote at the time, pointing out others who went for a buzzed look. "STOP SHAVING YOUR HEADS PEOPLE WHAT'S WRONG WITH Y'ALL."

"NOAH CENTINEO BUZZED HIS HAIR… IM NOT OKAY," another fan wrote.
