Sharna Burgess has a new look.
The “Dancing With the Stars” pro has traded in her long locks, taken out her extensions, and opted for a sleek bob. While some fans have been hoping that the ballroom pro would go back to her deep red color, she chose to keep things bright, going with a platinum blond tone.
“I absolutely meant to do a post with like, ‘hey, new hair transformation,’ after hours in the salon,” Burgess said on her Instagram Stories on May 2, 2023, going on to explain that “life has been unbelievably hectic.”
A few hours later, Burgess shared a photo of her new ‘do on her Instagram feed. “Living my best life with this beautiful spring weather, a killer new cut, a fresh no make up face and sculpted cheekbones,” she captioned the post.

Fans Reacted to Sharna Burgess’ New Look in the Comments Section of Her Post
Burgess traded in her red hair for a more manageable blond a couple of years ago. However, she’d been rocking super long extensions for several months now and it was time for a change.
“It was time to go from my mermaid life to a little something more sleek,” she said on her Instagram Stories. “I’m so, so obsessed. She’s back short,” Burgess continued, giving all the credit to her hair stylist, Kennedy Van Dyke.

“U r naturally SO beautiful!! Love your short hair so chic and clean.. slay girl!” a third comment read.
“Yes, So fresh and clean looking..Natural beauty..And your hair does not cover your body..lol,” a fourth Instagram user said.

In an interview with Extra at the iHeartRadio Music Awards in Los Angeles on March 27, 2023, Burgess was asked if she’d be back for season 32. “I hope so. I definitely want to come back if they will have me. I am ready to get back into it,” she responded.
