DeGeneres asked her jokingly, “Did you get a hair cut?” Hudson responded gamely, “A little one.” The host then wondered what Hudson’s two sons, Ryder and Bingham, and boyfriend Danny Fujikawa think of her buzz cut.
“Your boys and the new boyfriend,” DeGeneres asked. “Everybody likes the hair? ‘Cause some guys don’t like women with short hair.”
“Really?” Hudson replied. “I mean, I hope our relationship can transcend hair.”
We’re sure DeGeneres was just making lighthearted conversation, as she also asked the Fabletics co-founder, “Is that itchy growing back in? I’m just wondering if it’s the same as everywhere else,” to which Hudson burst out laughing.
“I haven’t gotten itchy,” the How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days actress replied. But she admitted, “I’m definitely starting to go through the awkward stage of it growing out. There are pieces sticking up and I have to put it down with product, so it’s interesting.”
As for what style she’ll try as her hair does grow back in, Hudson quipped, “I was thinking of bringing the mullet back.” And the reason why is delightfully strange. “I’ve been kind of off my Snapchat game,” she said. “But I think if I had a mullet, I’d be really on my Snapchat game, so it’d be good for my social media presence.”
