The Biffy Clyro frontman told Radio X's Chris Moyles that his partner is still getting used to the dramatic change.
Simon Neil has revealed his wife isn't "a big fan" of his hair cut yet.
The Biffy Clyro rocker surprised fans when he decided to chop off his long hair earlier this month, but says his other half thinks it makes him look like a "child".
Asked by Radio X's Chris Moyles what style his wife prefers, the Many of Horror singer replied: "She felt like she didn't know me. I was a stranger in my own house for a couple of weeks. She says I look like a child".
He added, jokingly: "So I don't know if she's a big fan yet, but she'll come round."

At the beginning of the month, the Howl singer took to the band's official Facebook Page to tease his dramatic new look by posting an image with his pony tail in his outstretched hand.
It came with the caption: "Who’s the hippy now?x" which is a reference to the band's Whorses song- taken from their 2009 Only Revolutions album.

The rocker followed it up with an image of the finished article, which was shared on Monday (7 May), alongside the caption: "No handshake or pat on the ass...x" which also comes from their Whorses track.
Meanwhile, the band are set to release their MTV Unplugged album on 25 May.
The record will feature tracks from their acoustic gig at the iconic Roundhouse in Camden last November, including performances of The Beach Boys' God Only Knows and their new track Different Kind of Love.

The Scottish rockers will play an intimate and stripped-back run of gigs to support the live album, which include a date at London's iconic Royal Albert Hall.
