The Mona Lisa might be a masterpiece, but that hairdo is so dated! That's perhaps why a Chinese net user decided to give Lisa del Giocondo the hair style of a Chinese college student.

Online in China, commenters were impressed with the new 'do. "Woah, she's so beautiful!" wrote one commenter, while in neighboring Japan, the revamped Mona Lisa was compared to famous Japanese models and idols.

For years now, the Mona Lisa has been the subject of reinvention or reworking by an array of famous artists that range from Marcel Duchamp to Salvador Dali. And now, she has flowing locks. Progress!
