Reba McEntire’s Bold Hair Transformation Causes a Stir

Reba McEntire, 68, sparks criticism with new hairdo

Country legend Reba McEntire, known for her fiery red curls and vibrant stage presence, recently surprised her fans with a new hairstyle that has sparked a flurry of reactions on social media. The 68-year-old star debuted her straighter locks in a playful Instagram video where she humorously explored the dressing room of pop duo Dan + Shay during The Voice‘s 25th season.

While the video was intended to showcase McEntire’s comedic side, it unintentionally diverted attention to her hairdo. Critics wasted no time expressing their opinions, with comments ranging from calling her new hairstyle “terrible” and “too flat on your head like a helmet” to urging her to go back to her previous look that featured fluffy hair, which some deemed more attractive.

Even some of McEntire’s adoring fans voiced their disapproval, stating that they love her but not her new flat hair. It’s clear that McEntire’s curly, voluminous hair has become a symbol of her vibrant personality both on and off stage, and any departure from that look is met with hesitation.

In a previous interview, McEntire reflected on her iconic hair, acknowledging that she can no longer achieve the same level of volume as before. Despite the mixed reactions to her latest hairstyle, it’s evident that McEntire is unafraid to embrace change and express herself. While some may prefer the “old Reba” with her fluffy curls, I believe her new ‘do showcases her dynamic personality.
