Katie Maloney showed off a new look. The 35-year-old ‘Vanderpump Rules’ star shared a selfie after undergoing a hair makeover, and fans had a huge reaction.
In March 2022, Maloney and her husband Tom Schwartz announced they were ending their marriage. But before their split, Schwartz once poked fun at Maloney’s shorter hair after she snipped an inch off her long tresses. In a previous “Vanderpump Rules” episode, Schwartz called Maloney’s hairstyle a “Karen haircut,” per BravoTV.com. Tom Tom’s partner later relented, writing on Instagram: “Life pro tip: never tell your wife she has a Karen haircut. Jokes aside, I love her hair so much [fire].”
In October 2022, a now-single Maloney got a fresh cut, and instead of a reaction from Schwartz, she heard from fans.
In an Instagram selfie shared in October 2022, Maloney showed off a new angled haircut that hit her just below her chin. In her Instagram story, she tagged her hairstylist and added the caption: “When [Mara Aghdami] come and hit you with her [scissors].”
Several fans reacted to Maloney’s new look in the comments. Some said they prefer the Vanderpump Rules star with longer hair, but others loved the short hair.
“Definitely! I love a good bob!” wrote one fan. “It takes guts. Looks beautiful,” agreed another. “She looks gorgeous now that she’s not dating Tom!” quipped another commenter.
Maloney has long been known for her mirror selfies, but she’s upped her game since splitting from Schwartz. She’s been sharing swimsuit photos and pics of her going out outfits for the past few months, but a recent look surprised even longtime followers.
In a photo shared to Instagram in October 2022, just before she got her haircut, Maloney posed in front of her bedroom mirror in a black t-shirt, black miniskirt and black shoes with white socks and sunglasses. “Punk Rock, Let’s Go,” she captioned the post.
Fans reacted to Maloney’s new side. “Katie, you seem really happy these days and just a completely different person. Glad to see this side of you,” one fan wrote. “Divorce suits you doll. I can’t wait to see it all for myself,” added another.
Other fans said Maloney exuded 2022 Wednesday Adams vibes. “The socks and shoes have Michael Jackson vibes and I love it!” added another fan. Others called Maloney a “punk rock princess”.
In the past, Maloney has been attacked on social media for some of her fashion choices. In 2020, she was slammed for an outfit she wore to a pre-Oscars brunch. According to People, Maloney’s Vanderpump Rules bestie Stassi Schroeder came to her defense on Instagram, writing, “Anybody talking about Katie’s amazingly candy alternative Parisian-chic Carrie Bradshaw look can shave their backs now.”
