James Charles says he has shaved his head but many internet sleuths say it's fake.

As seen above, James Charles posted an Instagram story teasing a new hairstyle. He didn't plan to keep fans waiting long, as he took to Twitter to reveal his surprise. Two hours after the initial Instagram post, James tweeted two pictures of himself without hair.

This shocked the internet. Users on Twitter were asking why and when this had happened. Many felt a strange sense of wonder over the entire situation.

Of course, it wouldn't be Twitter without witty memes. The barrage of high-quality jokes that were tweeted to James was unexpected. There were too many golden memes to make a small sample size. Here are a few popular ones.


Jokes aside, many used pictures of James without his hair to make a theory that this was fake. The lightness at the top of his head has made many users on Twitter believe that this is a bald cap. There is also a picture of the back of Jame's head that makes the entire head look like something is on top of it.


There was instant doubt after James posted the pictures. Doubters are to be expected when someone says that they shaved their head but it's not hard to see why they doubt James. James will need to address the viral picture of the back of his head before everyone can fully believe him.

James stated on Instagram that his stories were "slacking so bad recently."

James most likely wanted to keep fans interested and focused on his brand, which is style and makeup.
