In 2018, Judge Judy even became the world’s high-paid TV host. The annual income of the people’s favorite judge is approximately $147 M. Can you imagine it?

However, at the beginning of 2019, Sheindlin faced a harsh backlash from her fans. What did she do wrong?

She simply changed her hairstyle and, obviously, some social media users took it as something criminal.

Judy changed her iconic hairdo for a chic ponytail. Some fans were pretty skeptical about such transformation of their favorite host. One social media user even wrote that Judy “looks much older now.”

What’s the reason, Judy?

Finally, Sheindlin revealed the ‘mystery’ behind her style transformation. In an interview with The New York Times, Judge Judy explained:

My hair is getting older and I decided I needed to give it a rest from the constant styling.

She added, commenting on how her life changed with a new hairdo:

Freedom that I haven't had in 40 years! Suddenly, I have the time to take leisurely walks with my dog, read the morning paper and watch CNBC.

We think Judy looks great (and much younger) with her new ponytail. Besides, style transformation is what most of us often need to bring some new good changes to our everyday routine.

Don’t be afraid of changes, dear ladies! Just look at Judge Judy! She took a risk and is very happy about it.
