I think that the new 'do' is very mature and grown up. I also think it is a bit mumsy, but having said that it is probably much easier and quicker to do and it is nice to see a change. Its only hair after all, it will grow back if she wants it too.

When you said haircut, I wasn't picturing something that different, but I like it on her! She always had the same hairstyle, but with slightly varying lengths....long and layered. I think this works with her, and she has the kind of face that can take any length of hair, short or long. It is a bit of a shock, but everyone, including Crown Princesses are allowed to cut their hair.


I love the long white coat with the pink skirt, too. She makes being pregnant look downright glamorous!

Well you know, she can still have those elaborate coiffures now. It's called fake hair. I'm sure more than once princess has used a fall or extensions to create a hairstyle for a gala event when they had shorter hair.

And while she is a glamorous princess, she is a "mommy", and maybe she wanted something that was easier for HER to maintain. I'm sure she's not comfortable with having a hairdresser constantly doing her hair.....I know I wouldn't be. I'd prefer to do my own hair for non-gala functions.

I don't think that it's the hair style that is making her look chubby, it's her pregnancy. Mary is gaining weight, and it seems to go straight to her face, so her face is fuller now. It was the same when she was pregnant with Chrisitan.

I quite like her hair, it's very chic!

Crown Princess Mary's Current Events Part Ten

And in response to "msleiman"...I have personally had a hairstyle similar to Mary's in the past and it is a long bob that is surprisingly versatile...And you know Mary, she is going to mix it up, wear it up, wear it different ways...and everyone will be clambouring at their hairdressers to get the *Mary mod bob*

That is all...
I agree with everything you said! This haircut also makes her look so much younger!!!! I can't believe the difference!!! Brava Mary I like it so much that I think that the next time I have mine cut, I'll bring a picture of Mary

Yes, it's the pregnancy that's made her chubby. And she really isn't chubby, her face is just fuller than before. I really DO NOT like the shoes she wore

I was also stunned when I opened the pictures, but once the shock wore off and I looked at the pictures some more, I have decided I like her new haircut. Like foiegrass said, the bob look is IN, so. I wonder if Fred liked it?

I like the new haircut, but I prefer the old one. This haircut is more proper for women older than 45. She is still young to such short and straight hair (imo).

I love Mary's new haircut!! She really looks lovely, but then again, I believe that Mary can never do wrong, she has a great sense of style, and knows what works for her.
True, you have more options with longer tresses, but the freedom of shorter hair makes it all worth it. And when you have two children, it's practically a necessity.

As a mother of 2 I can tell it's the long hair or the very short hair that gives you freedom.
But bobs and other middle-long hairstyles constantly have to be trimmed to look really good.
And therefore they are not the best for busy young mothers
who don't have the time and money to go to the hairdresser regularly.
Of course, Mary has the money and her hairdresser is probably coming to her house, so she doesn't have to care.

I really like Mary's new haircut. Imho, it suits her very much.
And more pictures at Isifa.

I'm sorry, but I think the haircut makes her look so much older. Pregnant women to tend to get thinner hair during their pregnancy so that could be the reason why she cut it. I do however prefer her with longer hair, it suits her so much better!

I agree - she looks gorgeous with her new hair cut. I think she'll look even more gorgeous when it's about an inch longer! (I think that would make it a little more sophisticated).
When you have a baby or a toddler, with another one on the way, it's natural to want to simplify your look.

I am not a big fan of such short hair on such a young woman - but it does look good on her for casual attires. I wonder how she would look with a tiara with that haircut!??!?! After all its only hair, and it will grow (hopefully)!!
