Jonathan Van Ness Is Unrecognizable In New Instagram Post

Social distancing in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic has some people getting a little antsy being cooped at home, and Queer Eye star Jonathan Van Ness is one of them. The celeb recently decided to give himself a makeover and took to Instagram to show off his new look.


Queer Eye fans are used to seeing Van Ness sporting some type of facial hair. Whether he's rocking a full beard or a mustache, Van Ness and facial hair go together like peanut butter and jelly. It looks like he's taking advantage of his down time to experiment a bit, because he just shaved off his mustache and the sides of his beard, posting an unrecognizable photo of himself sporting a goatee on social media.

"This is officer Van Ness," he wrote in the caption of the photo. "Don't try new lewks during quarantine."

Van Ness added that he was taking things even further and was planning on shaving off all of his facial hair. "I'm shaving this chin thing off now just was aghast at how I look," he said.

Sure enough, Van Ness shaved off the goatee as well. He showed off his newly-smooth face on his Instagram Story (via Allure) and, honestly, he looks like a completely different person. He does, however, still have his trademark long locks, but who knows how long it will be before he decides to make an even more drastic change?


While Van Ness' transformation is pretty shocking, to say the least, his new look did provide to be entertaining to his many fans in this scary time. The Queer Eye star previously offered some words of encouragement to his followers during the coronavirus outbreak. "When things seem upside down remember to breathe," he wrote on Instagram. "Err on the side of safety & love. We will get through this together. If you're not sure how you can help, ask."
