Kaley Cuoco pulled a fast one on her more than 550,000 Instagram followers — and the Internet — on Saturday, March 29, when she revealed a picture of a seemingly drastic haircut. In a series of Instagram shots, Cuoco shows her glam squad, including celeb makeup artist Jamie Greenberg and hairstylist Christine Symonds, primping her out for the Kids’ Choice Awards in Los Angeles later that night.
After posting a picture of herself with her usual long, wavy blonde hair, the recently wed The Big Bang Theory star added another featuring a short, wavy chin-length bob. “I can’t stop!”
Various media outlets published the pic, exclaiming that she had debuted a brand new haircut in the style of Emma Roberts, Jessica Alba, and Kate Mara. However, Cuoco, 28, fooled ’em all and soon revealed that her long blonde locks were, in fact, intact. Cuoco attended the awards show with a messy bun — not a short hairstyle; and on Sunday, she shared a behind-the-scenes shot with her beauty team — with no bob in sight.
While scissors were wielded on Saturday, the cut wasn’t that major. “She did get a trim, but that was it,” an insider exclusively tells Us Weekly. “Kaley saw the media reports, and they were cracking up about it.”
In fact, eagle-eyes may have noticed that the arm in the short hair picture is actually makeup artist Greenberg’s, as it’s the same shirt from another Instagram picture. “If you look at the picture, you can see that it’s Jamie Greenberg’s arm — not her hairstylist — who is faux cutting it,” the insider tells Us.
