“She’s Gorgeous. The hair style makes her look event younger,” another fan said. 

“For the culture. She did what needed to be done,” another added.

On Oct. 18, Curry debuted her blond hair with a boomerang post of herself and her husband. Fans were not hesitant to share their opinions about the look in the comments section. Many made statements about how they confused her for a white woman at first glance. But others came to her defense and said that she looked good with the blond hair. 

After seeing this hairstyle, several people believe Curry looked good in both styles.

One person said, “She’s beautiful regardless blonde or bantu knots…y’all just be miserable in these comments  honestly.”

Another believed that, “She was cute with the blonde but this is Queen energy.”

“I loved the blonde! But she slays every look,” said another admirer.
