Yesterday the news went viral: Maria Sharapova has a new look? The tennis player posted the pictures on Facebook page herself.
Sharapova posted two pictures on her Facebook page Monday showing her long blonde locks replaced with an ear-length hairstyle and bearing the caption “So what do you guys think?? I kind of love it!”
Fans left comments in Spanish, English and Russian ranging from ”you look old now” and ”Nooooo” to ”I love it!”
When I was starting to like it (my first reaction was more like “ohhhh, no”) it turned out that it was all fake.
It was just a photoshoot
Sharapova has confirmed the haircut was a ruse. It’s a wig in the photos!
She posted, “Wow, when I posted those photos with the short hair I had no idea everyone would all go bananza….( my dear friends, I never actually said I cut my hair!) so for the sake of my email inbox and it’s stressful 24 hours, I would like to show you the below pictures…my hair is still long…and blonde…and well it’s pretty much the same! We did a shoot a few days ago and I sported all types of hair styles…long and yes short (a wig!!!).”…More at Hot Or Not? Maria Sharapova Gets A New Haircut (FAKE!)
I love Maria Sharapova, no matter what. Long or short hair, it doesn’t change anything.
Thanks Maria for providing us a very funny afternoon yesterday with your wig!
