As ‘Here Comes Honey Boo Boo’ comes back for a new holiday special, there’s something different about the show: Mama June got a hot new makeover!

Mama June, 33, the family matriarch and pageant mom to Honey Boo Boo, had greying curls pulled back off her face in previous episodes But in a preview clip, she debuts a new blonde hairstyle with straight, shoulder-length locks. She also appears to have had a tan applied, completing the transformation. We almost didn’t recognize her!

This is quite an amazing change for the new-found star, who looks so much younger (and better!) with her golden, silky locks! Since the family is photographed wherever they go, perhaps Mam June was inspired to makeover her appearance. With all the glam going to Honey Boo and her pageants, Mama certainly let herself go.

TLC is pretty mum about the details of the transformation. There may be a story behind it though. When asked for more information about June’s new look, a TLC spokesman would only say that “viewers will have to tune in to the episode to find out.” We can’t wait!

The episode airs Jan. 6 on TLC, so we’ll just have to wait to find out more details about Mama June’s glamorous new ‘do! In the meantime, we’re happy to see Mama’s putting a little more effort into her appearance. It’s such a welcome change for the mom of four! We are totally loving her hair. It’s amazing how big an impact getting rid of grey hair can make!What could be next for Mama and the family? You’ll just have to watch and see!
