And after two decades of red hair, AJ decided it was time to try something new and a little shocking.

Yep, that's right! He decided to dye his red hair blond for an entire week.

That's where professional hairstylist Yuichi Ishida came in.

The whole process took two hours, and afterward AJ saw himself as a blonde for the first time in his life.

"Wow! I look like a completely different person."

AJ's co-workers were shocked.

There were also Game of Thrones references...obviously.

But after living as a blonde for a few days, AJ said he felt like he was wearing a mask.

Since he's been a ginger most of his life, he felt like he wasn't being true to his own true (red) self.

Thanks to this experiment, he has no plans of going blonde permanently.

He's down for maybe getting some blonde highlights every now and then. But going full-on blonde? Don't count on it.
