Thankfully, he said “Bye, bye, bye” to the cornrows. And the sweatsuits. And all. Those. Rhinestones

In 2000, worked his “I’m on spring break in Jamaica so I might as well get my hair braided” look.
Even Justin’s Mini Me (we’ll call him Little Boy Blew His Hair Out) didn’t love 2000’s overgrown curls.
We’ll chalk up the buttered-noodle hair and chain wallet to the fact that this pic is from 1998. (And yes, we’d totally let 1998 JT take us to see Titanic and hold hands in the back of the theater.)

It’s not quite a Forever Lazy, but his 2003 outfit does look like mob boss loungewear mixed with a couch from 1976.

Hand in hand (it was the only part of him not covered in denim) with then-girlfriend in 2001, the duo looked like the best-dressed couple at the redneck prom.
Hopefully there’s a new outfit in that package. But since this photo is from 1997, that new outfit is probably covered in rhinestones.

Now we know what caused the Great Corduroy Shortage of 2001.
The tips of his gloves ran away in 2000.
He’s wet. He’s in a bucket hat. And this photo is from 1998. We know what you did last summer.
The pants say “Wasssap” (hey, it’s 2000). And the turtleneck says “I hate these pants.”
