Justin Bieber reveals that his infamous mustache is finally gone in new pictures

When it comes to stylish facial hair, there are peaks and there are troughs, and nowhere is this axiom more true than when it comes to the subject of mustaches.

Back in the Victorian era, a gentleman was considered stark naked with a bare top lip. In the 1970s, everyone seemed to have sprouted handlebar mustaches that would have put Super Mario to shame. But nowadays the mustache is somewhat neglected, with some young men unwilling to grow one.

The 'tache did have one vocal proponent recently, however: pop superstar Justin Bieber. Bieber has boasted a prominent mustache for several weeks now and hasn't been shy about showing it off either.

Sadly for the pro-mustache camp however, it seems as though Justin has recently tired of his facial buzz, and has surprised his Instagram followers with a post displaying a smooth upper lip this week.

Taking to Instagram to post a candid selfie, Justin captioned his bare-faced picture: "I shaved. MUSTASHIO went on holiday, but he will be back in due time [sic]" 

A number of people, including his beloved spouse Hailey and his mentor Scooter Braun, took to the comments of the post: some thankful to see the back of the mustache, while others mourned its loss.

In a recent interview with DJ Zane Lowe on Apple Music, Bieber opened up about how his marriage has made him less impulsive compared to when he was with Selena Gomez, stating: "I think I still was dealing with a lot of unforgiveness and all that sort of stuff. To be honest, I don’t think I even knew what I was really struggling with at the time. I don’t think I knew I was dealing with unforgiveness."

He added: Before that, in my previous relationship, I went off and just went crazy and went wild, just was being reckless. This time I took the time to really build myself and focus on me, and try to make the right decisions and all that sort of stuff. And yeah, I got better."
