On the late-night show, Elordi explained that he'd "always wanted" a mullet, something he hadn't been able to get first because of his mom and later because of his career. He decided to take the leap when he had time off due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
"My mom never let me have one 'cause she wanted me to be a gentleman, presentable," he explained, before explaining why the hairstyle didn't last long.
"My girlfriend, within a week of us dating, she cut it off. She took me to the bathroom, and she got scissors out, and she cut it off," the Kissing Booth star said of Gerber. "She said, 'You're cute, but not that cute.'"
They went Instagram official shortly thereafter, when they dressed up as Priscilla and Elvis Presley for Halloween.
In May, the model gushed over her beau, telling Vogue that "being able to be with someone I trust, where we don't want anything from each other, having a safe, steady relationship like that, has really opened my eyes to the possibilities of love and what it feels like to love without conditions."
"Lust is touching other people or wanting them," she added, "but love is really seeing someone." The next month, Gerber called Elordi "my love" in a sweet birthday tribute.
