James Rodríguez looks a little different now.

The Colombian soccer star has become the latest player to go blond.

While on vacation in Miami, the Real Madrid midfielder stepped out with wife, Daniela Ospina, and daughter, Salomé, surprising fans by sporting platinum blond hair in a photo shared by Ospina on her Instagram account. He was also photographed while strolling through Bal Harbor.

Rodríguez, 24, follows in the hairy footsteps of Welsh player Aaron Ramsey, French star Samir Nasri, English player Phil Jones and Belgian player Marouane Fellani (who was known for his black Afro).

Fans were quick to respond on social media to Rodríguez’s makeover. Some wondered if he lost a bet; others noted he looks an awful lot like Justin Bieber.

On the field, Rodríguez was last spotted earlier this month competing with the Colombian national team at the the Copa América Centenario, where they placed third. He is expected to rejoin Real Madrid next month.
