Mr Trudeau was pictured visiting children at a day camp in Gatineau Park in Quebec with much shorter hair than usual earlier this week.
Those used to his longer locks were somewhat surprised to see him sporting the trim, which he debuted to the world wearing a plain white shirt and jeans amid visits to the park and two Ottawa suburbs.

Since he came to office in 2015, the 50-year-old has always kept his hair the same mid-length style. It is not clear what prompted him to make the change.
His shorn locks were the big talk of the day, with several making comments on his new look.
His new look has sparked a debate online, with many people comparing him to Jim Carrey’s famous character in Dumb and Dumber.
‘So now… either you cut your hair yourself, or literally everyone hates you even your hairdresser,’ one wrote.
‘So Justin Trudeau got himself a new hairstyle and he’s making all kinds of public appearances,’ another added.
‘For those who haven’t seen it, apparently he went to his stylist and said “Give me the Lloyd Christmas.’
They finished the post with a side by side shot of Mr Trudeau and Mr Carrey in the infamous 1995 comedy in which he stars with Jeff Daniels.
Another simply said: ‘ I can’t stop looking at his hair’ while another said: ‘What happens to his hair? Lol he looks like that guy from dumb and dumber.’
Many also tweeted Mr Trudeau directly to ask him if he had been the one to chop his own locks, while others said they should have been warned that he was planning on cutting it.
He was due to visit the Brasserie Etienne Brule Brewery in Embrun, Ontario later in the day (Friday July 15) which is about 30 minutes east of Ottawa. But the event was called off before he arrived.
Around a dozen protestors had gathered across the street from the brewery, including one who was carrying a flag with profanity directed at Trudeau, and another who was recording on their phone.
Inside, the brewery was busy with parties of people inside and out of the patio. Three patrons were asked to leave the property. One of them, a woman, approached Royal Canadian Mounted Police, who were posted outside in plain clothes, and appeared to argue with them before leaving.
Government sources have confirmed the presence of the apparent convoy supporters was behind the decision to cancel the event.

It is the second time in less than two months he has been forced to pull out of a planned appearance before of protestors who appear to share similar views as ‘freedom convoy’ protesters who blockaded downtown Ottawa for three weeks last winter.
He attended a fundraising event virtually in May after protestors gathered outside a banquet hall in Surrey, British Columbia.
The protests have been largely against covid-19 vaccinations and restrictions as a result of the virus. Some have also demanded that he been thrown out of office.
