Maria Sharapova Fakes Out Fans With Short Hair Pic

Tennis star Maria Sharapova posted some sexy new short hair pics on Facebook earlier this week, and the athlete’s new coif seems to have caused her a bit of unwanted notoriety.

What Sharapova later revealed, however, is that the pics of her sassy short cut were not real, and the tennis player’s blonde locks remain intact. The original pic- which is actually quite striking- garnered more than 16,000 likes on Facebook, but Sharapova’s experience probably mirrors what many women face when they dare to cut off their longer locks in favor of a shorter hairdo.

Inevitably, men everywhere who you never even realized have a dog in this fight will come out of the woodwork to wail, “why did you cut your haaaaaaaaaair? It looked so pretty long.” Seriously, have you ever gone from long hair to short hair like in Maria Sharapova’s pics and not hear that at least a few times?

Sharapova was forced to not only upload pics proving her blonde hair remains long, but she also had to write a note on Facebook about the fake-hair pic and assure fans her coif remained unchanged.

Sharapova said:

“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!!!).”

Do you think the short do actually suited Maria Sharapova?
