She rose to fame earlier this year after the explosive season six of Married at First Sight Australia aired in the UK, and Martha Kalifatidis has stayed in the spotlight ever since.

The full-time Aussie influencer, who remains married to her MAFS husband Michael Brunelli, made headlines once more this weekend as she was forced to defend her new hair look, after trolls cruelly messaged her to say they didn’t like it.

Martha took to Instagram late last week to debut a brand new hair cut and colour, after documenting the change in a series of videos posted to her Stories.

The 32-year-old bravely decided to have inches cut off her hair, to transform her waist-length locks into a short bob. Martha also gave her hair a fresh new pigment, and opted for a light copper shade.

The Aussie beauty seemed pleased with her new look, which had a cool retro feel once it was blow-dried and styled, and decided to do a poll asking fans to vote whether they liked her cut and colour.

Despite a large number praising the naturally-brunette star on her bold choice, some followers apparently went too far with their feedback and sent her horrible messages about the look.

“Who knew a hairstyle could cause so much commotion,” says Martha in a new Instagram post. “Literally thousands of you have felt compelled to write to me to tell your thoughts. So many kind and funny messages and then some are not so kind.

She then goes on to reveal that she’s received hurtful messages asking if she’s “lost it”, and telling her she looks “so much older” with the short style.

“Let’s make this really clear…Idgaf about being ‘pretty’. That’s an outdated priority for women. I strive to be strong, intelligent, independent and driven. Keep your ‘pretty’ to yourself and I’ll keep doing what I’m doing,” she writes.

Martha then goes on to reveal that she never felt confident enough before to cut her hair or wear it differently, but now feels like she’s at a stage in her life where she wants to try new things.

Since her stint on MAFS, which was originally filmed in 2019, Martha has become something of a beauty guru. She often shares skincare tips, haircare advice, and make-up tutorials over on her Instagram, where she’s amassed a huge following of loyal fans.

Only last month, Martha joined OK! for an exclusive beauty chat on Instagram Live, where she talked us through her elaborate skincare regime, which you can see in full here.
