How to Watch

Watch Chicago P.D. Wednesdays at 10/9c on NBC and next day on Peacock.

On April 16, the Chicago P.D. star took to his official Instagram page to show fans a striking new style choice he made: he dyed his hair bright pink, and we're officially obsessed. 

The snapshot showed Aguilar lying on the ground in a white t-shirt and gold necklace that made his vibrant new crop pop. "Ok yawn," the actor cheekily captioned the post. (The bold hair choice will have you anything but yawning!)

As for whether or not Aguilar will introduce this eccentric new hair color to his edgy Chicago P.D. character Torres, we'll just have to wait and see. 

Aguilar likes to experiment with his 'do, as he recently rocked a platinum blond buzzcut as well. In an interview with NBC Insider, he explained why he made the daring choice to shake things up. 

"I wouldn't be surprised if Torres could do some undercover work with the blonde hair," he told us. "I actually wouldn't think that's far-fetched at all since I'm learning more about undercover cops. They really do change their look and do a lot of things to blend in or stand out or fit in any way they have to. But this was really just for me."

"I've always wanted to go platinum," he continued. "So the moments that I'm off an episode or we have hiatus, I just do it for me. But I also think hair or music or all these things are always a beautiful way for us to be able to get out of characters. Because sometimes you don't realize, and you're still kind of 'in it.' So, I find that when I change my hair and I look different, I feel different."

In a another interview with NBC Insider, Aguilar also opened up about what motivates Torres's actions on Chicago P.D, especially when it comes to his confrontational nature. 

 "I think that's what makes him a very interesting and very dangerous character, because he's dangerous for the wrong people. He will stand up, whether it is as a police officer or as a person or as a man, to fight for what he believes in or to protect the people he loves. So I think that moment is the broadest version of Torres," he explained.
