You can not deny Clay Aiken’s new hairstyle anymore than you could deny his singing abilities. Though Clay had some ‘spike’ to his shorter hairstyle, an attempt to keep a tradtional look more trendy, this picture proves that it did make him look a bit older. The ‘moptop’ is making its way back into fashion and is now Clay’s new look. Some may turn up their nose to his bangs falling well into his eyes, yet it IS part of the style. Whether you like this new look or not, you must admit it has made him look much younger. In fact, like a teenager. Besides, it has sent this "Howdy Dowdy" look packing and given him a nice Beatles aura.
