Braiden Sunshine is the curly-haired, bespectacled teenage contestant on Season 9 of The Voice. Well, he was. During his last rehearsal with Gwen Stefani and guest mentor Rihanna, the ladies suggested that he slick his hair back. Sunshine said his friends wouldn’t talk to him if he changed his look. “They would if you had money,” Rihanna teased him.
During the Live Playoffs, guess who shows up with a different look with straight hair and without his glasses! Now all he needs is the money. What do you think? Does the new look make Braiden look more sophisticated or does it take away from his boyish charm? Rihanna isn’t there to chime in. The Voice airs Mondays, Tuesdays and Wednesdays at 8pm on NBC.
