Back in March John and Edward Grimes, aka Jedward, shaved off their trademark, and quite frankly iconic, quiffs, to raise money for a cause that’s very close to their hearts, Irish Cancer Society. The event, in honour of their late mother Susanna, raised more than 3 million Euros.
Since that time, fans and followers have got used to their shorter hair, but even so in that time, it’s grown considerably, leading the Dublin musicians to yesterday introduce a new style to fans – the JedHawk.
Taking to TikTok, the duo showed John giving Edward’s hair a final touch-up with the bleach:
They later followed this up with photos of the finished do on their social media, with an explanation on their Instagram:
“JedHawk our new hairstyle! Bleached and cut ready to film our next tv project filming this June! It’s gonna be exciting to get back into studio and being on your TV screens.
We have loads of iconic new looks ready to rock. We’re going to have to get Covid tests for over 10 days so our noses aren’t ready for it. We’ve been twinning for over 10 years!”
John and Edward are set to start filming a new tv show in the next week. While there’s not a lot of information available publicly about it yet, they’ve said that it’s a very different sort of show, with a format that’s not been seen before. Speaking last week to Ray D’Arcy on RTe Radio One, they added that they’ll be able to say more on social media over the next few days. You can listen to the interview below:
Jedward are expected to release their fifth album later this year.
