Jax Taylor Says the Future Is "Looking Bright" After His Sports Bar Opening

Jax Taylor has gone through a lot of changes this year amid his separation from his wife, Brittany Cartwright.

How to Watch

Watch The Valley on Peacock.

The Valley cast member has grown his business, watched his son, Cruz Cauchi, turn three, and dealt with his wife moving out of their home in the Valley as they go through their split. All of these serious events could drive anyone into a "midlife crisis" which is exactly what Jax joked about on his Instagram Story on Thursday. Luckily, he doesn't seem to be making any more permanent changes in his life.

Jax took to his Instagram Story on Thursday, where he posted two new photos of himself with a brand new hairstyle.

Although Jax normally wears his hair slicked back and keeps his facial hair well-groomed, the podcast host opted for a messier look. In the photos, Jax can be seen wearing his hair loose and curly with his hair pushed to the front of his head while sporting a bit of a beard and soul patch. But, judging by his caption, it doesn't seem like Jax is a big fan of his new look.

"How male millennials style. hair," Jax wrote in the caption of the photo. "The new look for guys going through [a] midlife crisis."

He added the tag "this is 40" to the picture, even though he did celebrate his 40th birthday in July 2019. Although this new hairstyle is a refreshing change to his normal look, it doesn't seem like it's here to stay. In another photo posted to his Instagram Story later that day, Jax returned to his favorite slicked-back style.

Is Jax Taylor going through a midlife crisis?

During an episode of the Vanderpump Rules After Show in April, both Jax and Brittany addressed if he is going through a midlife crisis. "Not yet," Jax said during the episode.

Brittany, on the other hand, said that Jax has always enjoyed the things associated with a midlife crisis. "Jax does have his muscle cars and stuff, but he's always kinda had that stuff," she said.

Jax, however, did say that he could go through a midlife crisis in the future. "It's coming," Jax admitted. "I'm just trying to keep my marriage intact right now."

Jax Taylor's latest comments on his separation from wife, Brittany Cartwright

During a June 7 episode of their shared podcast, Jax revealed that he finally saw a doctor, where he addressed his mental health issues. "I met a doctor at my bar and she's absolutely amazing," he said. "And I went in there and literally just broke down."

Jax opened up to the professional about his marriage and struggles in life. "I'm like, 'This is what's wrong with me and this is what I'm doing, and this is who I'm attacking, and I have serious, serious anger issues, and I have a child, and I don't want him to see me act like that.'"

While Jax and Brittany are still "very much separated" he noted that they're trying to "exhaust everything" before calling it quits. "We're trying to live separately," Jax said. "We're trying to possibly date other people, [and] we're trying to, you know, figure out what works for us."
