Lucy Mecklenburgh debuted a pretty different hairstyle yesterday, and isn’t it gorgeous?!
The 24-year-old shared a snap of herself with tight curls, which she’d achieved by plaiting small sections before carefully untying then.
She captioned the image: ‘Plaits out!! Curly wurly.’
Of course, the majority of her fans were quick to tell Lucy just how hot they thought her new ‘do was. One wrote: ‘Looks great!!’ while another said: ‘Gorgeous x.’
But unfortunately for the ex-TOWIE lady, not everyone was quite so positive about her wavy mane.
Comments included: ‘I prefer straight hair on you,’ ‘You look like someone off real housewives of new jersey,’ and: ‘Not a good look maybe wear it over to the side 🙂 xx.’
Um. We’re pretty sure Lucy can wear her hair however she likes, guys. And there’s no need for mean comments.
But her locks weren’t the only thing that Instagrammers had taken issue with. Once again, Lucy was targeted over her size.
One opinionated follower said: ‘How thin is your neck though,’ while another chipped in: ‘You look super duper skinny.’
However, plenty of others stuck up for her, with one ranting: ‘Such rude comments here. Lucy is a real person, take a step back and think to yourself…would you say these nasty comments in real life to someone?’
Lucy hasn’t made any statement herself, but that’s probably because it was only recently that she spoke out about body shaming.
