WASHINGTON — Mike Myers has had some far-out hairstyles over the years to play characters such as Austin Powers and Wayne of “Wayne’s World.”

But he was rocking neither mullet nor shag Thursday at the White House state dinner welcoming Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau.

Myers, a proud Canadian, debuted a distinguished silver mane at the party, surprising many who’d never seen him sans his brownish-auburn mop.

Some compared Myers’ new look to fellow comedian Steve Martin, who turned gray at a young age. At 52, Myers wouldn’t qualify for the term “prematurely gray,” but the quick change has fans’ heads spinning.
