On December 24th, 2014, Jared Leto posted to Instagram an older photo of himself with a short haircut. He captioned this photo "Haircut. #2015." Since that moment, we have waited impatiently, grinding our teeth, digging into the earth endlessly simply to release our tension, refusing food due to its dearth of the sustenance we need, the sustenance that comes only with Jared Leto's haircut, while we waited for the actor to make good on his promise.

We followed his exploits on Instagram throughout the following month: no haircut. We celebrated his Flame Car and yet: no haircut. We, pained expressions now cemented to our faces, watched him throughout award season: no haircut.

On March 2nd, Suicide Squad director David Ayer shared a photo of a correctly beardless Jared Leto:

Could this be the beginning? Certainly, hairs were cut. But just beard hairs. Could we soon see a true haircut, the promised haircut? Yes.


Soon after, David Ayer shared another photo—a photo of scissors approaching a ponytail—a photo of a the moment before a haircut:

Yes. You should, David Ayer.

Jared Leto, after posting two photos in a row of himself with a short haircut, posted the same photo to his Instagram with the caption, "I miss my beard already."

Yes. This is it, my friends. Our wait is over. The sun is shining. The weight is lifted. Take a breath. Take another. We may rest easy tonight.

Jared Leto is getting a haircut.
