Judge Judy does NOT look like THIS anymore - and the world is not coping...

She has had a makeover - take a look!

Editor / April 14 2019

Judge Judy has been on our screens since 1996 and she's always been the same - quick wit, take-no-prisoner comebacks and that same pouffy hairstyle. 

But all that changed this week when the 76-year-old star - who earns a whopping $62 million a year on the show - showed off a new, more gentle hair-style.

But the world could not cope!



Appearing in a new episode of her legal show, Judge Judy Sheindlin ditched her signature short brown hairstyle for a ponytail! Yes, a ponytail!

She now sports a lighter fringe with her hair pulled back! And her new look was debuted on Instagram by her court bailiff with the hashtag #newhair - and it rocked her millions of fans to the core!

On one of her major fan sites - @realcaserealpeople on Instagram - broke the news, writing: “I’m hyperventilating. What do you guys think of Judy’s new ‘do?”

The photograph attracted thousands of likes and comments with many loving the fresh style - which they thought made Judge Judy look younger and softer.

“Judge Judy you are rocking that ponytail, wear it more often you are beautiful,” said one fan. Added another: “This is so stylish.” Said a third: “She looks so much more modern - love it!”

But not everyone was loving Judge Judy’s new ‘do. 

“Love you, but the new do makes you look so much older,” one said. Said another: ‘I much preferred the old style.”

But hey, after 23 years isn't everyone entitled to update their new look? Yep!
