Justin Bieber continues to sport his divisive dreadlocks as he steps out with leggy wife Hailey for date night… amid cultural appropriation row over the hairstyle
Justin Bieber stepped out with his wife Hailey Bieber on Monday evening while sporting his divisive new dreadlock hairdo.
The singer and his model spouse were seen heading for dinner at trendy hotspot Craig’s in West Hollywood, California following the controversy.
The Peaches singer, 27, appeared to shirk his woes as he wore a casual ensemble with a bandana holding his hair in place while Hailey, 24, was clad in a leggy look.
Last week, Justin faced a number of claims of cultural appropriation in showing off his new dreadlocks yet he continued to proudly rock the style.
The Canadian pop star was seen in multiple shots on his Instagram page with his brown hair in dreadlocks as he sat outdoors in a red top and shorts with blue sneakers – similar to his ensemble worn for his date night.
The singer’s controversy comes amid the connection between dreadlocks and black identity and culture, with many social media users calling out the white artist after he was involved in a similar scandal in 2016.
Fans penned: ‘Just saw Justin Bieber’s story…. my guy, are you f***ing serious?? He learned absolutely nothing, when it comes to cultural appropriation huh? The way his hair is gonna fall out even more. He better shave it all of when he’s done with it.’
Be a blazer babe like Hailey wearing The Frankie Shop
Since Franke Shop launched in 2014, famous faces including Hilary Duff, Gigi Hadid and Elsa Hosk have become firm fans of their statement pieces.
Hailey Bieber is also top of the list as several times she’s stepped out wearing the brand, most recently this oversized faux leather blazer. To complete the look, she’s wearing Femme LA ‘Luce Minimale’ sandals, carrying Bottega Veneta’s ‘The Pouch’ bag and wearing Jennifer Fisher ‘Samira’ earrings.
The single-breasted blazer comes in a gorgeous smooth beige colorway that can be worn with everything from dresses to shorts and jeans.

Another user said: ‘Justin Bieber getting dreadlocks after this year of him publicly processing his relationship to cultural appropriation and racism is…… mush for brain vibes. Would say I can’t believe it but I can :(.’
Writer Feminista Jones explained to CNN in 2016 said that ‘cultural appropriation is about the power dynamic.
Away from her husband’s scandal, Hailey looked sublime in an oversized light tan leather blazer. Underneath, she wore a barely-their nude mini dress.
She also had a plush-looking handbag that matched her blazer perfectly.
Her hair was pulled up into a sleek high pointy tail, with a wisp of hair plastered to her forehead.
The daughter of Stephen Baldwin walked along in yellow sandals with a multitude of ankle straps.
Both Justin and Hailey were seen wearing disposable black face masks at a certain point.
The Lonely hitmaker populated his Instagram feed and Stories with several images and video clips of the pair while out on their date night.
He also poked fun at his wife while he was waiting for her to get ready, joking that it was taking her too much time ‘to figure out what she wants to wear, could be here all night folks wish me luck’.
