The waxy lifelike lookalike had Bieber's old floppy hairstyle, instead of the new one he revealed in February.
Bieber unveiled his waxwork at Tussauds earlier this week, and thought it was "incredible."
He went with his mother Pattie Mallette, "and the event was streamed live on the internet so his thousands of fans could watch," says the Entertainmentwise.com website.
The OMGMusic.com website quotes Madame Tussauds sculptor Colin Jackman
as saying that Bieber's new look caused them worry about their new creation at the last minute.
"As soon as we saw he'd cut it, it was a consideration," Jackman said. "We got on to his stylist and him and we all decided that they wanted the classic Bieber cut."
In a twist earlier this month to the tale of the headline-making head, the founder of the blog Lesbians Who Look Like Justin Bieber
reported a distinct shortage of women sporting the new hairdo by the beginning of March – two weeks after the tonsorial titivation.
According to AOL News
, "despite announcing Bieber's major hair development in a post last week, [Danielle Owens-Reid]'s gotten zero photo submissions of lesbians sporting Bieber's new, more mature haircut."
"This," says the outlet, "leads her to believe that lesbians who resemble the youthful, attractive singer – or at least those 'Biebians' who regularly visit her blog – simply aren't ready to accept the change in his hairstyle. Instead, they seem to be ignoring it."
then quotes Owens-Reid as saying: "I get submissions every single day. Since he cut his hair, that hasn't changed. But I'm still getting the same amount of pictures of girls with the swoopy Justin Bieber hair, not the new style. It's like everyone wants to ignore the new cut, just like everyone wants to ignore the fact that he's dating Selena Gomez. It's one of those 'say it ain't so' moments."
At least one picture had appeared on the blog's front page when we checked it out today.
