Riverdale's KJ Apa is unrecognizable after updating his look! The New Zealand native, who's known for sporting flaming red locks courtousy of Archie Andrews on the popular CW show, has updated his hairstyle causing fans to have to take a double take.

The 25-year-old shared a pic of himself rocking a buzz cut in his natural dark brown hair color toInstagram July 28, captioning his photo, "Reset. One Fast Move."

And it's clear that his transformative move has left quite the impression on his fans. "Omg, love this look on you, so STUNNING," one user wrote.

Another added, "So weird seeing you without your red hair."

But perhaps a third user summed up most fans' reactions the best when they simply wrote, "WHAT."

To be fair, KJ has shared in the past that he's a natural brunette—and has even rocked his real hair color in films like I Still BelieveandThe Hate U Give. But while KJ is most famous for Archie's red locks, the updated look definitely looks good on him.
