‘Fixer Upper’ Fans Are Begging Chip Gaines to Cut His Hair

Chip and Joanna Gaines, formerly the stars of HGTV’s Fixer Upper, have been fan favorites since they began appearing on TV back in 2013. The two have graduated from HGTV to focus on other business ventures, including their own network, but they still make time for family. And in Joanna’s recent post, fans recognized that Chip’s hair just doesn’t work.

Chip and Joanna Gaines are slowly making their return to TV

When Chip and Joanna left Fixer Upper behind in 2018, they revealed that they were doing so to focus on their marriage and family. The couple welcomed a fifth child shortly after the show’s end, and after taking some time away from the small screen, they’ve slowly been making their comeback.

The couple’s show, Fixer Upper: Welcome Home, premiered on discovery+ in January 2021. The show is essentially the same as the couple’s original HGTV show but is now on a streaming service. Joanna’s cooking show, Magnolia Table, premiered on discovery+ earlier this year as well. The couple’s channel, Magnolia network, is set to premiere later this year, but fans can subscribe to the streaming service in the interim to get their Chip and Joanna Gaines fix.

Fans think Chip Gaines desperately needs to cut his hair

Chip and Joanna might be off cable, but they’ve still kept fans in the loop through social media. The two often share photos of their projects and family through Instagram. And on Mother’s Day, Joanna posted a sweet picture to Instagram of her and Chip alongside their mothers.

“What a joy it was celebrating these two beautiful women today,” part of Joanna’s caption read. However, despite the sweet post, fans could only notice one thing: Chip’s long hair. And they desperately want him to cut it.

“Love you guys but Chip get a hair cut!!!” one user wrote.

“Chip you are so handsome, but that hair, not so much. Please cut it,” someone else commented.

“Chip … Whatever you’re going through snap out of it,” another person added. “You’re too handsome to self sabotage with that 70s surfer boy look.”

Though fans did appreciate the photo, almost every one of the most-liked comments had something to do with Chip’s hair.

Chip has never been one to play by the rules  

The long hair is nothing new for Chip Gaines. At the start of Fixer Upper, Chip’s hair was short. But as the show went on, it became longer and longer. By 2018, Chip’s hair was fully grown out. And it appears the pandemic hasn’t caused him to change his ways.

Chip’s hair has been long for months, but he’s never been one to play by the rules. The Fixer Upper star didn’t answer any fans’ comments, and nobody would be surprised if he’s completely unfazed by people’s desire for him to cut his hair. Plus, Joanna has been dealing with it for years, so if she’s alright with his long locks, there’s no reason for him to shave them off.
