Gogglebox Australia star Jad Nehmetallah admits to ‘having a Britney Spears moment’ after impulsively shaving his head
Jad Nehmetallah is known for his charming good looks and witty one-liners on Gogglebox Australia, where he shares the couch with his friends Matty and Sarah Marie Fahd.
But the handsome reality star isn’t immune to a hair disaster.
In an Instagram post, the 34-year-old shared footage of himself walking the streets after shaving his head. ‘So I did a thing…’ he captioned it.
New Year, new look? On Tuesday, Gogglebox star Jad Nehmetallah debuted a brand new buzz cut on Instagram
Speaking to Daily Mail on Tuesday, Jad revealed there’s a whole lot more to his latest buzz cut than meets the eye.
‘There’s actually a funny story behind it, I usually get a weekly hair cut… but my barber was closed for new years,’ he explained.
As a result, an impatient Jad felt the need to play a hairdresser.
‘I had a appointment, I was meant to cut it tomorrow, but last night I got home and I had a Britney Spears moment! I started shaving my own hair.
‘Half way through it, I was like “What the f*** am I doing?” I had to force myself not to get too carry away, so I decided to keep shaving it on a number two.’
‘I had a appointment, I was meant to cut it tomorrow, but last night I got home and I had a Britney Spears moment! I started shaving my own hair,’ he explained
The next day Jad admitted he woke up and visited the gym with a hat on to avoid any embarrassment.
‘When I got to the barber, he said, “Mate, what are you doing? You’ve left it so uneven!”‘
Fortunately for Jad and all his fans, the crisis was quickly averted thanks to a trip to his trusty barber.
According to the TV star, having loyal fans tune into the show every week has made him a little more self aware.
Hair disaster: On Tuesday, Jad admitted he realised he would have to rectify his handy work sooner rather than later. ‘Half way through it, I was like “What the f*** am I doing?”‘ he said
‘I’ve always been into self-care. But it’s important for your mental health.
‘Usually as men we neglect our skin and all that, but obviously as I get older and being on the show, I started to notice the importance of looking after myself.’
Jad said he is a fan of a facial, often visiting celebrity hot spot, Face Of Man Sydney, which is also frequented by the likes of Tim Robards and Steve ‘Commando’ Willis, where he undergoes a premium grooming experience.
‘Everyone always comments about how good my skin is. Honestly it’s because of their treatments and products.’
From rugged to ripped! Since joining Gogglebox in 2017, Jad has noticed the importance of self-care. ‘I’ve focused a lot on my diet and my training as well,’ he told Daily Mail on Tuesday
And the external changes aren’t all that matter to the humble Sydney sider, who suggests he is constantly practices gratitude, clean eating and trying new exercise regimens.
‘I’ve focused a lot on my diet and my training as well.’
Jad currently enjoys a mix of weight training, cardio and boxing classes with Olympian Luke Jackson.
The 13th season of Gogglebox Australia airs on Foxtel and 10 in early 2021
