If there’s one thing the internet just can’t tolerate, it’s when celebrities make trivial changes to their appearances. This week, Judge Judith Susan Sheindlin (AKA Judge Judy) sported a new hair style and people were shook.
If you’ve seen even a few moments of day-time TV over the past couple decades (and honestly, even if you haven’t), you know Judge Judy’s characteristic no-nonsense bob. It’s the haircut of a woman in power (see: Hillary Clinton, Elizabeth Warren, Nancy Pelosi, etc.) and she’s been rocking it for as long as we’ve known her.
Here it is to jog your memory:
Sometimes it’s a little longer, sometimes she gets it chopped a little shorter, but the judge has always had some sort of variation of this cut. Well, that is, until just recently.
In a new episode of her long-running courtroom show, Judge Judy debuted a totally new do—a low ponytail.

Some Twitter users noticed that the style was veeery similar to that of another famous judge. Anyone else getting Ruth Bader Ginsburg vibes??

Whatever her hairstyle, the one thing we know for sure is that she’ll keep on being the fiercely competent and judgmental justice she’s always been.
