Justin Bieber Debuts A Slick New Hairdo (PHOTOS)

Justin Bieber is known for his hair. His signature side-swept coif is no more, and for the last few months the 17-year-old has been trying out different style.

At The Pencils Of Promise 2011 Charity Gala in New York on Thursday, Bieber donned a velvet suit and debuted a new slick hair style.

In March, Bieber trimmed his legendary locks and the unwanted hair that hit the barbershop floor were shipped off to talk show host Ellen DeGeneres, who put it up on eBay. Those little pieces of Justin ended up selling for a staggering $40,688, with all the proceeds going to animal rescue organization, The Gentle Barn Foundation.

Bieber was in good spirits at the Pencils of Promise event, probably breathing easy since the paternity suit filed by 20-year-old Mariah Yeater was withdrawn, and text messages where Yeater referred to another man as the father of her child were discovered.
