A second photo showing off the cropped do, without his signature dreadlocks, is captioned, “i come alive in the fall time.”
The artist uploaded a third shot with the caption, "r.i.p. "@abelxo"".
The Weeknd told Rolling Stones last year that his hair was something he wanted to be remembered by.
“I want to be remembered as iconic and different,” he told the publication.
“So I was like, ‘F*** it, I’m gonna let my hair just be what it wants.’ I’ll probably cut it if it starts interfering with my sight. I can kind of see it right now," he admitted.
"But if I cut it, I’d look like everyone else. And that’s just so boring to me.”
