Posted: Updated:

Ron Artest has a dramatic new haircut, and the Lakers forward's barber was helpful enough to explain the meaning behind the blonde and purple look.

Scroll down for multiple angles of the new hairdo, including a recent photo for a before-and-after comparison.

Update: Artest has shaved his head.
