Then, the really attractive short or medium-length hairstyles seemed to disappear and, with some exceptions, we tend to prefer our royals, young or older in longer hair. What happened ?
Also, I think royals don't exploit the chignon option, except perhaps Princess Mathilde, who, as I once posted, seems to have reinvented it in its modern, upbeat (no pun itended) version, as much as they could.
To be honest - its my very own opinion - I really really dislike the short hairstyles of the fifties (except Grace Kelly's - this hairstyle looked stunning) and eighties. I always thought how much better Princess Margaret (which was a really beauty though) would have looked like, if she wouldn't had this short curly hair all her life, same for the Queen. I mean, it suited them anyway, but IMO this hairstyles are just frumpy. Same for Diana's hairstyle in the Eighties and Nineties - I always thought, it made her look old and less feminine. I must say I prefer long hair and if it doesn't suit the woman very much or she gets older, she should wear it all up.

But I liked the 20ies and 30ies hairstyles, maybe because they weren't very curly, there were slight waves in the hair. Oh, and I like Märtha Louise with short hair very much, also Zara Philips and the latest haircut of Countess Alexandra as well

I think that long or shourt hair depends on both "hair fashion" and also the form of an owner's face (square, heart- shaped and so on).
I prefer medium-long hair, as it's very practical, if you need a haido, you'll pin hair up.
