Sadie Sink may be best known for her role as Max Mayfield in Stranger Things, but her long red hair is almost as famous. It literally even has its own fan base. So news that Sink sliced her waist-length hair off into a bob above her shoulders has sent her followers into a tailspin and sparked the hashtag #sadiesinknewhair on TikTok (where it currently has over 1.7 million views).
Sink was first seen with the new cut when she performed with some friends at The Bowery Electric in New York City on April 27. Then, Croatia Airlines posted a picture of the actress flying with them while sporting her new bob a few days later on April 30.
What’s suss though, is that even though Sadie cut her hair a couple of weeks ago, she still hasn’t publicly debuted it on social media or at any public events. And given that the fifth and final season of Stranger Things is due to start filming next month, fans are wondering what this could mean.
One TikTok user, @seditmbv posted a video with Sadie’s new hair and the caption, “the hair… ST5 spoiler??” While another, @noahschnapp_st.s5 wrote, “have you seen that Sadie Sink has a new hairstyle?? If she cut off her hair, does that mean she won’t be in season 5? after all, they can’t change their hairstyle. Max won’t be alive?”
