(Photo) Michelle Wie Is Now A Ravishing Redhead

While admitting it isn’t the best photo, Michelle Wie debuted her new red-toned hairdo on Twitter just a few hours ago this Thursday morning and count me among those who love the change. Wie is a 21-year-old college student working on her studies at Stanford, not to mention golf prodigy (who hasn’t quite reached her potential, but nevertheless has plenty of time to do so), so why shouldn’t she experiment with her appearance? If not now, when?

Perhaps the new dye job will help Miss Wie shake off all the pressures to be what everybody else wants her to be and somehow be a kind of psychological catalyst through which she starts kicking butt on the LPGA. Stranger things have happened. Look at what happened to Dennis Rodman after he started dyeing his hair. Okay, maybe that’s not the best example. Forget I even mentioned him.

Let’s just hope that Wie doesn’t take it too far with this image makeover. We don’t need her going all goth on us, wearing ratty black clothes, applying heavy black eyeliner and listening to Siouxsie & The Banshees and Bauhuas all the time. That is what goth kids still do these days, right?
