"This is it, this is the new me," said the host while showing off his new facial hair.

At the beginning of June, Jimmy Fallon explained that this would be his "summer of 'stache" and he's been growing out a beard to prepare for his mustache debut since Memorial Day.

On Thursday, the host asked Brooklyn barber Russell Cordeiro to shave his beard into a mustache during a commercial break.

Fallon pretended to jump back when Cordeiro first started shaving him with an electric razor. He chatted throughout the shave, asking what the "hot mustache" is now.

"Everybody seemed to like the handlebar mustache so much. It's actually become very popular," Cordeiro said. "Whether it becomes a trend, I don't know, but the amount of people who either are asking about it or are asking how they can take their current mustache and grow it out into a handlebar mustache — I kid you not."

"How do you feel?" he asked Fallon when he was done. "Like a million bucks," said Fallon. "This is it, this is the new me."
