Damian Hurley left fans shocked after sharing an image to Instagram which appeared to show he’d cut off his long hair.

The model, 18, is usually the spitting image of his famous mum, Elizabeth Hurley, but looked very different in the photo.

The snapshot showed Hurley stood topless in a field while holding a camera, with his trademark long locks missing, leaving some fans believing he’d gone for the chop.

“He shaved the head,” one wrote.

“I’m officially shook,” another added.

“Your luscious locks,” yet another fan wrote.

Thankfully, however, it turns out Hurley hadn’t in fact cut off his hair, but was actually wearing prosthetics for a project he was working on.

Setting the record straight in the accompanying caption he wrote: “Update lol: I love u [sic] guys so much hahaha but I’m not bald this is prosthetics for a new project lmao but thank u for the cute comments tempted to do it for real now.”

In the comments many fans agreed Hurley could totally pull off the shaved-head look.

“Ya know everyone couldn’t believe how gorgeous your mother was but DAMN YOU STOLE THE DNA,” one wrote.

“Just proving you can rock anything, unfair on the rest of us really,” yet another fan agreed.

Fans have often commented on how much of a resemblance the model has to his famous mother, 55.

Back in 2019, the teenager made his modelling debut, and having shared a still from the video to his Instagram, people couldn’t get over the similarities.

The campaign, for celebrity make-up artist Pat McGrath, marked Hurley’s first campaign in the modelling world. The following year he was asked to front a second campaign as one of the faces for the cosmetics brand.

And Elizabeth Hurley couldn’t help but show her pride, declaring she was one “proud mama” after describing the shots of her son as “ravishing”.

Hurley’s lookalike son certainly seems to have inherited his mother’s confidence in front of the camera and the duo share more than a passing resemblance, with the same chiselled bone structure, piercing green eyes and long, thick brunette locks.

The mother and son duo recently highlighted their uncanny resemblance after sharing a festive snap, co-ordinating in matching Christmas jumpers.

The pair share a similar dress sense too, with the teen previously paying homage to his mother’s iconic Versace safety pin dress, at a photocall for a modelling campaign.

Dressed head-to-toe Versace including loafers, Damian wore a sleek black suit decorated with a series of gold pins.

It was a look reminiscent of a dress his mother, Liz, wore on the red carpet to attend the Los Angeles premiere of Four Weddings and a Funeral on the arm of then-boyfriend Hugh Grant in 1994.
