Taylor's new hairdo was not a spur-of-the-moment decision, but is in fact for his upcoming role in the second season of Scream Queens. The actor will be taking on the character of Doctor Cassidy Cascade as he makes his debut in the show opposite stars including Lea Michele, Emma Roberts, John Stamos and Jamie Lee Curtis.

The actor has been an active presence on social media ever since he first joined Instagram earlier this year. In his first post, he shared a short video to mark the occasion, with friends Adam Sandler and David Spade on hand to help him celebrate.

He captioned the clip: "Hello Instagram! It only took me until the year 2016 to finally join, sorry I'm so late to the party haha. Huge thank you to my buds @adamsandler and @davidspade for helping me introduce my page."

There's no doubt that it was a popular decision – in less than 6 months he has already amassed over 1.2 million followers.
