If there’s one actor who has solidified his heartthrob status, it’s Noah Centineo. And part of his charm — besides that dazzling personality, sparkling smile, and way of just capturing hearts with every character he plays — includes the fact that he has some fabulous hair. C’mon now, those dark curls of his always look so fluffy and we dare any fan to say they haven’t thought about what it would like to run their fingers through his tresses.

But those curls are gone. Well, only a few, for a few seconds, we should say.

While the 22-year-old actor was hanging out with Allure and they challenged him to do a ton of things he’s never done before. Perhaps the most riveting task was to straighten his hair. As you can imagine, the To All the Boys I’ve Loved Before star was a bit hesitant to get right into it since he expressed how he’s seen his friends get burned using a flat iron before.

But he kept a close eye on his strands as he glided them through the straightener.

And by the end of it, a little section of his curls were gone. Temporarily, of course.

He even gave us a hair flip and smile combo that honestly is too much to handle.

While Noah embraces his natural texture, it was nothing short of adorable to see him so concentrated on making this sleek ‘do happen. But we have a feeling he’s not going to change at all and will still keep on living that curl-haired life. It just suits him, ya know?
