In addition to her black top, Hailey had on a matching pair of high-waisted black pants that covered up her navel.

She showed off a sultry gaze while highlighting her impeccably made-up face, and she wore her dirty blond locks pin straight and parted down the middle.

She let the photos do the talking and simply captioned the post with orange, eye and peach emojis.

Over on Justin’s Instagram, he posed stone-faced against a gray wall to show off his new dreadlocks.

A second snap featured him leaning his head forward to give a better view of the polarizing hairdo.

Despite his tough demeanor, the Sorry singer was wearing a white Mean Walter Gene sweatshirt with an adorable dog illustrated over the chest, and he paired it with black graphic sweatpants.

He completed the casual look with chunky white shoes and thick Cuban links around his neck.

Justin has faced charges of cultural appropriation among some social media users after returning to his dreadlocks.

The pop superstar first sported the new hairstyle in an Instagram post on April 25, but he previously debuted the look in the spring of 2016, though they were short-lived.  

Plenty of his fans approved of the new look, but it wasn’t a hit outside of his regular circles, where many accused him of cultural appropriation.    

Although the locks have been worn across the globe over hundreds of years, and the earliest documented dreadlocks were found in India, the look is now more commonly associated with Black people.

Jamaican Rastafarians were the first to use the name ‘dreadlocks,’ and today many people consider white people wearing the hairstyle to be a form of cultural appropriation.

Earlier this month, Justin announced that he had pushed back his upcoming Justice World Tour to 2022.

The shows were originally intended for 2020, but they were postponed due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

In a statement posted online, the Canadian hitmaker wrote: ‘We’re working hard to make this tour the best one yet…I’m excited to get out there and engage with my fans again.’

After first delaying the shows, he planned to reschedule them for 2021, but it was later decided to push them back further to 2022, as many areas are still too unsafe to perform in.  

He last toured for his Purpose album released in 2016 but the tour was halted unexpectedly as it moved into 2017, with him citing exhaustion and depression as his reasons for taking a break.  

Despite his inability to tour in 2021, Justin seems to be itching to perform.

Later on Sunday he shared photos taken from a birthday party for his friend DJ Tay James, who celebrated his birthday at West Hollywood’s Peppermint Club on Saturday.

The singer–songwriter wore a yellow-and-blue checker-print puffer jacket and was seen hanging out with Jayden Smith at the party.

He even got on stage and performed with the band at one point.

The venue may have been violating California’s ongoing mask mandate, as the crowd was mostly unmasked.

Although the CDC has now said that it’s safe for fully vaccinated people to go without masks indoors and outdoors, they’re still required to wear them in hospital settings and on public transportation, as well as in crowed indoor venues, such as the Peppermint Club.

Fully vaccinated people are also required to still abide by more restrictive local laws and ordinances, and California still required masks to be worn in indoor settings and in crowded outdoor areas.
