Kate Upton Fakes Her Haircut, Fools Us All (PHOTOS)

A few days ago, Kate Upton stunned the world (and we use the term "stunned" loosely) when she chopped off her blond locks in favour of a lob.

The blond bombshell captioned the pic, "Love my new do 💇 @brycescarlett @quinnmurphy1." The cut wasn't drastically different from her original hairdo, but it was noticeably shorter.

Turns out, the Sports Illustrated model fooled us all. According to her stylist (via Refinery 29) the 22-year-old was actually just sporting a "faux bob." Well, call us impressed! We never would have guessed that her hair was just tucked under.

The Vogue cover gal obviously loved her look, as she flaunted her fab 'do while promoting the video game "Game Of War: Fire Age," (she's the game's spokesperson) while in South Korea.

Check out Kate's faux cut from a different angle:
