Famed for his distinctive shaggy red hairdo, Ed is embracing his natural colouring but mixing up the style and fans are loving it.
One wrote: “This is the best post you’ve ever done in all your time on social media.”
Another shared: “IN A WEIRD WAY IT ACTUALLY WORKS ON YOU .”
A third posted: “I have no idea what’s happening here, but I f*****g love it!”

Following hot on the heels of Ed’s trippy video to his I Don’t Care collab with Justin Bieber, it’s fair to say anything could happen.
The quirky piece saw Ed and Justin dress up as ice creams and pandas in a sensory explosion.
Ed is just days away from releasing his fourth studio album No. 6 Collaborations Project.
He has already dropped four tracks titled I Don’t Care, Beautiful People, Best Part of Me and Blow.
The latter is a song which features pop superstar Chris Stapleton and Bruno Mars, who is also credited as one of its producers.
Best Part of Me sees the British redhead collaborate with YEBBA, who he described as “phenomenal”.
“She’s onto massive things,” he shared. “Bruno, Chris and I had a lot of fun recording. Play them loud, tell your mates, enjoy.”
Earlier this year The Sun revealed Ed is set to become a billionaire by the time he is 30, in less than two years.
His Divide tour has banked well over £493million from global gigs, with tens of millions rolling in every week.
He looks set to beat U2’s long-standing record of £579.35million over their 2009-11 run of live shows.
Music industry guru Mark Borkowski said: “The man who was busking on the streets is now a man who is going to be a billionaire. Above all, this shows just how potent live music is nowadays.
“It’s the one that generates the money. The music business has moved on with labels having to be more savvy and Ed clearly has a team that knows what it’s doing.”
In May the Perfect singer surpassed Adele in the Sunday Times Music Rich List wealth chart, having earned £80million in 2018, taking his bank balance to £160million.
It meant he had earned more than any other artist in history over 12 months.
Industry experts expect Ed to smash U2’s record when he takes to the stage at the Laugardalsvollur stadium in Reykjavik in August.

Concert industry trade publication Pollstar estimates Ed’s average show earnings at £3.15million a night — so his remaining 35 gigs are set to pull in at least another £110million. The singer is currently playing to packed crowds in France and will end Divide in his home town, Ipswich, on August 26.
PR guru Marcel Knobil said: “Ed is an extremely talented individual who demonstrates it is not always about the packaging but about the perfect product. People such as him, Adele and Sam Smith give less credence to glamour and just display raw talent.”
