Married At First Sight’s Martha Kalifatidis has been hit with cruel criticism on social media after a hair transformation.
The 32-year-old Australian reality TV star is known for her trademark long brunette locks on the hit E4 show.
But Martha has opted for a new lighter look and chopped off much of it for a trendy bob look.
However, the star has now threatened to shave her head after being bombarded with nasty messages from some of her 588k Instagram followers.
In a post on her Instagram account, Martha admitted: "Wow… who knew a haircut could cause so much commotion.
"My DMs are flooded with messages about my hair. Literally 1000’s of you have felt compelled to write to me to tell me your thoughts. So many kind and funny messages and then some that are not so kind.
"In all honesty I don’t mind that much. I get it, I have a platform and I went on reality tv so I fall into the category of “well you’re a public figure so….”
The majority of the messages are along the lines of: "omg babe you were so much prettier with long brunette hair", "can you please go back to long brunette hair", "have you lost it", "you look so much older, what have you done? Much prettier with long dark hair".
She added: "Let’s make this really clear… idgaf about being ‘pretty’. That’s an outdated priority for women.
"I strive to be strong, independent, intelligent and driven. Keep your ‘pretty’ to yourself and I’ll keep doing what I’m doing.

"Because I love my hair the way it is now, and I loved it long and dark too. I feel really good and I’m more confident than I’ve ever been rocking this new look.
"The truth is I never had the confidence to cut my hair or even wear it differently for a long time. The fact that I do now is something I’m really proud of.
"I hope you all find the confidence to wear your hair, or make up or that dress you’ve always wanted to wear in any way you please.
The star stressed: "And don’t let anyone stop you from doing what YOU want."
