TEEN Mom fans think Chelsea Houska is unrecognizable in a throwback photo from the MTV series which shows the alum sporting blond locks “with feathers in her hair.”
The South Dakota native, 30, has been known to play with her appearance through the years.
The Teen Mom still was shared on Reddit and fans were in shock.
Comments were split between jokes about the trends at the time — specifically the feathers in Chelsea’s hair — and compliments for the reality star.
“Chelsea’s old vibes were my old vibes,” one fan wrote.
Another commented: “I, too, had feathers in my hair during this time.”
“Is this season 3? Chelsea’s outfits are certainly choices,” another wrote.
Someone else added: “I’m probably one of the only people that liked Chelsea as a blonde, lol. Anyone else?”

Chelsea recently showed off another transformation, posting about her post-baby weight loss.
Chelsea shared a series of selfies on her Instagram Story earlier this week.
The first was in promotion of her “distressed sweater” from her fashion line.
Chelsea wore her black hair in a bun in the clip, gushing about the “amazing” sweater.
In another Story, she mentioned the sweater came in “three colors.”
She turned to show off her butt, revealing that she had switched to medium size.
Chelsea posed wearing leather-look leggings, noting that she was “loving the fit of them.”
She revealed in the video that she could also fit in a size small.
While her weight loss transformation has sparked no issue with fans, another evolution in her appearance has.
The picture made its way to Reddit, where fans noted that the MTV star looked more tan than her girls.
One fan wrote: “If I didn’t know any better, I’d think she adopted those kids lol I don’t get why she wants to appear an entirely different race!”
Another chimed in: “It’s weird how people are coming to her defense about her way too dark makeup color/skin color. I guess it rubs me wrong when white girls try so hard to look brown.”
Several of Chelsea’s fans came to her defense amid the drama.
One supporter wrote: “I’m sure she’s a wonderful mother, she just has a ridiculous fake tan.”
Another commented: “It’s not my taste but if it makes her feel confident and beautiful, then what’s the harm?”
Chelsea’s looks have been a point of contention with fans, with many accusing her of altering her appearance and some claiming she’s gone overboard.
Photos of Chelsea modeling on her Instagram Story were shared to Reddit, where fans pleaded with her to pump the breaks on the procedures.
The person who posted the photos wrote: “When did Chelsea age 15 years overnight?”
Others chimed in: “Ya she is def starting to veer into melting face migrating filter territory.”
A third Reddit user commented: “She should slow it on the lip fillers and Botox,” while another added, “She looks older than me in these pictures. I’m older than her.”
Several fans came to her defense yet again, with a supporter slamming haters for being “obsessed with not aging.”
One fan wrote: “Yeah, it’s not unusual, I think they both look their age. People are obsessed with not aging.”
