And the most annoying thing of all? We've STILL not seen her finished look. Aaaaagh!
The former TOWIE star posted a snap of her lopped off ponytail on Monday after going for a complete new look thanks to Jamie Hall at the Nicky Clarke salon in Birmingham.
Maria had been contemplating the chop for weeks after being inspired by Rita Ora's cute blonde crop and she posted lots of snaps to her Instagram account asking her followers what they thought about the idea...
Opinions were mixed, but she went for it on Monday and even donated her chopped off locks to a children's cancer charity which we love her for.
What we don't love, however, is that we never got to see her new do.
So, we had to guess what her new hairstyle looked like. Seethe.
And now she's gone and taken her Rita Ora makeover one step further and bleached her hair blonde!
"This is happening #Blonde," Maria Instagrammed, along with a close-up snap of her colour job in progress (top).
But where's the much-awaited finished picture? Good question.
Maria has dabbled with red, brunette and blonde hair in the past and pretty much suits them all, but we can't wait to see her short, blonde do.
Has she stuck with the sunny blonde she was back in 2012? Perhaps she's done a Kim Kardashian and gone a very fair, ash-blonde shade?
Or maybe she really HAS channelled Rita Ora and copied her champagne-blonde colour.
More likely, however, is that her hairdresser has turned her the perfect shade of blonde to suit her skin tones and eye colour. Because that's the sensible thing to do...
We just hope we finally get to see her dramatic makeover at some point this week. Or there could be a few sleepless nights ahead of us!
