The 93rd Academy Awards have drawn to a close with several surprise victories - Best Director went to Chloe Zhao, the first woman of colour to win an Oscar in this category, while Sir Anthony Hopkins won Best Actor, which many expected to go to the late Chadwick Boseman. However, for many viewers the biggest surprise was Brad Pitt's new hairstyle.
The 57-year-old appeared in a black tuxedo and a bow tie with his long hair tucked into a bun.

Social media users were left enchanted by Pitt's look and lauded his hairstyle.
I did a hair mask in the shower today, took a “glow” vitamin, and I still don't think my hair looks as nice and shiny as Brad Pitt's low key man bun.— Sarah (@SayWalters) April 26, 2021
Brad was the best moment tonight ❣️— lorena guard (@lorenk76) April 26, 2021
One user even contended that Pitt deserves an award for his beauty.
"Brad Pitt deserves an Oscar for still being fine as f**k", read the post.
Many users noted that the actor doesn't look his age.
He keeps getting more fine, it’s ridiculous.— Tasha J. (@theglossier) April 26, 2021
Others contended that they prefer his other hairstyles.
He looks better with other hairstyles, but still, he never looks bad to me!!— Justice Seeker 🌊🌊🖖🥁 (@BastaGal) April 26, 2021
That man bun has to go— Isbell (@ilucero1028) April 26, 2021
Some netizens said that Yuh-Jung Youn, who won the award in the category Best Supporting Actress was bewitched by Pitt's looks and started flirting with him.
How much of a badass is Youn Yuh-Jung that she gets up on stage to accept her #Oscar and immediately starts flirting with Brad Pitt.— Christy Lemire (@christylemire) April 26, 2021
During her acceptance speech Yuh-Jung Youn, who became the first South Korean actress to win an Oscar, thanked Pitt for pronouncing her name correctly and said she was happy to finally meet the actor.
This is not the first time that Brad Pitt has caused a stir during the Oscars. Last year, the actor made headlines when he made a joke about Donald Trump's first impeachment trial and got emotional while accepting the award for Best Supporting Actor.
