I would rather be known by actions rather than whether they are good or bad - Sean
In a video, the YouTuber disclosed that he was tired of the image that is always associated with people who have dreadlocks and that's why he opted to go for a short hair look.
“Why did I cut my hair? I didn’t mind my hair, it’s just that I didn’t like what was associated with it. All the assumptions, presumptions, as it is right now my life is far different than I expected it to be and I would rather be known by actions rather than whether they are good or bad, rather than my hair or any of my relations.
“You must be wondering why exactly I cut my hair? My message is simple, just as I I’m not your assumptions or my own hair so are you! So apply this to yourselves the best way you can,” shared Sean Andrew.
On Tuesday, Sean surprised a section of his fans after cutting off his dreadlocks. For the longest time since coming into the limelight, Sean has maintained his deadlocks as his signature look but that has officially changed.
A short video shared on his Instagram handle, which enjoys a following of 128,000 followers, captured the transition from his shoulder-length 'locs' to his new crew cut.
The digital content creator has promised to share what prompted him to do away with his dreadlocks at a later date.
“How do you like my new look? I’ll tell you the full story tomorrow,” shared Sean Andrew.
