In an era when most brides opt for the long, luxurious look when it comes to wedding hairstyles, the typical plan leading up to their big day is to grow out their hair to get it to its max length in time for those "last-forever" wedding photos.
But for one well-known bride-to-be, the opposite is true. In fact, this Royal lady stepped out recently proving that she is determined to buck that trend.
Princess Eugenie, who is engaged to Jack Brooksbank and set to wed him at St. George’s Chapel at Windsor Castle on October 12th, debuted a brand new, shorter, sassier haircut as she attended a charity event in London on Wednesday. In the above photo, the Princess is seen chatting with a wounded warrior.
The look, which flatters her, points to a more mature, grown-up Eugenie - qualities that many look for in ladies stepping into the responsibilities of marriage and family.
If nothing else, the Princess (younger daughter of Prince Andrew and Sarah Ferguson) demonstrates in a bold, concrete way that she is taking the role of Royal representative seriously - by sporting the stylish bob as she greeted dignitaries and servicemen, alike.
According to the Princess’ own Instagram account, Eugenie “loved spending time at the Lord Mayor’s Big Curry Lunch today, meeting so many incredible people all supporting ‘ABF - The Soldiers' Charity @soldierscharity and their work with those we owe so much to.”
Here she's seen shaking hands with chefs who prepared the fabulous luncheon.
From the ABF The Soldiers' Charity Instagram page, “We are the National Charity of the British Army. Supporting soldiers, veterans, and their families, for life, since 1944.” A very noble cause, indeed!
Here, Eugenie shares a laugh with some of the ranking soldiers who were present at the event.
Her Instagram followers responded enthusiastically to her self-posted snaps with favorable reviews: “The haircut and ensemble are spot on,” one wrote. “Love, love, love your new haircut!!” declared another.
I don't know about you, but I LOVE her new look! What remains to be seen, however, is what Jack thinks of it!
And, if he prefers it longer? Not to worry, she still has six months to grow it back out. It should be about three inches longer by then!
