Princess Diana is remembered for her kindness, compassion, impeccable sense of fashion, and of course, her iconic short hair. Let's a look at some of the most beautiful hairstyles she ever opted for.
Princess Diana's life was tragically cut short, but her memories remain alive in the hearts of those who knew her kindness. She only wanted to be the people's princess, and her grace and empathy helped her do just that.
Let's not forget how iconic her fashion style was, especially her ever-changing hairstyles. She famously wore her iconic short hair and rocked many different styles throughout the years.

Diana was never a long hair person, not even during her childhood days. She flaunted shoulder-length hair as a child, and her cut only got shorter as she aged. Here's a look at some of the most memorable hairstyles she wore.
During the late 80s, the royal curled back the hair from her face.

THE BLUNT BOB
In 1980, Diana caught the eye of Prince Charles. A teenager back then, she rocked an almost brunette, blunt bob that only a pair of dexterous hands could have cut.

In 1991, Diana met hairstylist Sam McKnight during a photo shoot and asked him what he would do if he could style her hair in any way he wanted. And that's exactly what he did and thereafter began the royal's pixie cut era.
