She said on Larry King Live "why should I change?" but she clearly changed her mind.
Toni Jones, assistant fashion editor of The Sun, said "Compared to what she had, it's a 200 percent improvement. But our readers think this is as far as she should go. We want her to stay one of us, not get hair extensions and a fake tan."
Boyle got her hair done at a local salon for £35 ($50) rather than travelling over 300 miles to London to get it done for for £200 ($295). David Beckham famously had all his hair shaved off for a cost of £300 ($450) when a razor would have done the same job in his bathroom for £1.
Max Clifford, the most famous publicist in the UK, said the makeover could be a major risk as it could destroy the connection between Boyle and her global audience.
"Keep her as natural as possible for as long as possible," said Clifford. "It's more about protection than promotion. She's got the voice. She has to make sure that the person people all around the world fell in love with remains the same."
Miss Boyle has also got herself some new clothes. A stylish black leather jacket and what looks like a Burberry scarf.
The next round if BGT is live on May 23 when Susan Boyle will larn if she has got through to the final. Bookmakers in the UK have made her hot favorite to win the competition.

Simon Cowell will be making plenty no doubt as he signs up recording contracts etc... for Susan Boyle and likewise Internet entrepreneurs have ssen a niche and bolted for it.
She has been on Larry King Live already and will be on Oprah at some stage, she has also now been mentioned in South Park and I guess the Simpsons would be the next port fo call.
The West Lothian council has seen fit to put up a new fence and since Miss Boyle's appearance on BGT over 30 websites have sprung up like mushrooms.
Boyle, who was an unemployed charity worker in Scotland, was generally ignored by all and sundry before she appeared on BGT, now everybody is very PC and wants to be her friend ! What a funny old world we live in.
Susan Boyle's Youtube clips have been seen by over 85 million people worldwide.
Miss Boyle herself does not yet have an official website, but people have registered sites in her name in the US, Europe and Turkey ! If your name really is Susan Boyle I suggest you register a site quick, it may soon be worth something.
SusanBoyle.co.uk was registered on 10th April and set up as a fan site.
There is however another Susan Boyle - a Texas based artists called Susan K. Boyle - and she owns the domain name SusanBoyle.com, which has seen a huge surge in visitors in recent weeks. At some point somebody will be offering Susan K. Boyle a lot of money for her domain name.
A word of advice to Susan K. Boyle - if you want to sell your domain name make sure you get a LOT of money for it and also you should renew it now, it expires in January 2010 so best to renew early for a few years.
Susan K. Boyle herself says "I can only hope there are one or two art lovers/buyers among the vistors."

It is April 22nd not April 1st so I guess we have to take this story seriously. It appears that Hollywood is interested in making a film of Susan Boyle's life !
And reports have it that Simon Cowell is fighting off offers from Hollywood, as he is keen to produce the film himself
Would Demi Moore be interested in portraying Susan Boyle on the silver screen ? She is after all credited in part for Miss Boyle's worldwide superstar status.
It is rumoured that Darla Rae has already sent Susan Boyle a movie role - an offer to perform a singing part in the movie Section B.
But Cowell is said to want to handle any deals through Syco - his own production company Syco.
The Daily Star has reported : "He is amazed as anyone about how Boyle-mania has gripped the world.
"Simon can see the business potential in Susan. He's not only seeing album deals in the UK and the States but also movie and merchandising.
"But he would want the move to be based around the Britain's Got Talent brand rather than Susan's life.
"It would follow her dream of getting on the show and then, of course, she would have to win."
Susan Boyle has seen a dramatic shift in her life since her appearance on the Britain's Got Talent talent show. Her performance has been watched over 35 million times on Youtube, she has appeared on larry King Live and numerous other US chat shows. She will be appearing on Oprah Winfrey's show. The council has put up a new fence ! (A minor miracle in itself to get a council to do anything).
Copies of the CD on which she sings Cry Me a River have been selling on Ebay for over $1400.

Ms Boyle gave an amazing rendition of the song in front of a stunned audience and the rest is history as they say. She has already been invited to Opreah Winfrey's show, has reduced Demi Moore to tears and appeared on Larry King Live.
A spokesman for Oprah Winfrey said that Susan Boyle had been seen by Oprah, who had invited her to be a guest on her show, but no dates were given.
A video clip of Susan Boyle's amazing performance on 'Britain's Got Talent' that can be seen on Youtube has so far been viewed more than 30 million times.
Ms Boyle has been interviewed on US talk shows, is apparently being invited on worldwide tours and is rumoured to have been invited to sign a duet with Hugh Jackman.
Ms Boyle certainly has a remarkable singing voice but so far had remained undiscovered in her small towm of Blackburn in West Lothian, Scotland.
She was was born in 1961, is an amateur singer and unemployed Scottish church volunteer and by her own admission has never been kissed. But now she is an international phenomenon and her life is set to change in ways that were unimaginable only 2 weeks ago. She has also been dubbed "The Woman Who Shut Up Simon Cowell".
Simon Cowell is now said to be in the processing of arranging a contract with his Syco Music company label for Ms Boyle.
