Max had his dreadlocks for nine long years. It became his signature look.

But as much as the young teen loved his look, he decided to make a drastic change — for his mom, Rumble reports.

She said she missed seeing her son's face hidden away behind all that hair. So, Max decided to chop his long locks to surprise her.

The scissors came out, and he said goodbye to his beloved hair — piece by piece. Here's his new, short look!

But remember, the big reveal was saved for Max's mom. When she came through their front door, the sight of her son stopped her dead in her tracks.

She murmured “thank you,” as she fell into his arms.

Max's mother seemed unsure if she should laugh or cry as she took in her son's new look.

Mission accomplished, Max.
