Default Did you like Mary better with long or short hair??

I loved Mary's hair the best the first couple of seasons. That's when it was past her shoulders, little flip at the end, and very dark. I don't think the shorter, lighter-colored hair suited her, but that's just me.

I like Mary's hair and her style best in the first two seasons. She had a hippy ingenue look with that long mane of brunette hair. In the third season, she had shorter hair dyed blond and looked more like a TV executive's wife than the iconic hat-tossing babe. I think it was also the clothes and less body curves and less of a baby face due to weight loss. I think she looked better in later seasons though, with better hair and wardrobe, so season 3 was a low point in that regard, for me.

This is my first post, so "Hi" all.

The shorter hair gave her a more "grown up" and "mature" look.

Not that there was anything wrong with her long black hair in the early years, but the change to shorter hair wasn't bad.

When a woman matures, her hair should get shorter.

As much as I often think women look better with long hair, it is weird seeing a woman over 60 with long hair.

At some point a woman needs to make the transition from long hair to short.

We as men just hope a woman doesn't make the transition too soon.

I don't think Mary did, though. It was the right time.

We'll just agree to disagree then. I liked her ingenue hat-tossing look in the early seasons and think she was young enough to pull it off for a few more years at least, but she apparently wanted to look more professional. Like I said, season 3 was a low point for me, and she did improve upon the mature look in later seasons, for me at least.

Long hair! They should have let her keep it long, but straighter without the flip. The longer hair with the flip was cute , but out of style going into the 70's! She started to look too old with her hair shorter. Plus I liked the darker color when it was long too!

I liked her with her season 1 hair the best. I think it was a 'fall,' a sort of wig attached underneath her real hair. Her hair looked amazing in the episode "Support Your Local Mother." Of course, the fashions of that time were very hip and youth orientated, as well.

yea, I liked her hair the best in the first season too. And you're right it was a "fall" which like you said is a kind of wig. (I remember my mother used to have one) She wore it to disassociate herself from Laura Petrie.

I won't argue with the fans of her long hair. She looks great there. She looked good with shorter hair too though.

I would have to say the shorter hair because: 1) the long hair wasn't even real! 2) I think Mary Tyler Moore herself preferred the shorter hair; the only reason for the long hair in the first two seasons was so she wouldn't look like Laura Petrie; 3) well, I have no third reason. I think she looked greater whether her hair was long or short. But knowing the real Mary always wanted her hair short, that's the best reason for me to prefer it.

So that is a fact, that all that wasn't her real hair? Wow. Like now days the girls get extensions to make their hair longer and lusher ! But Mary's wasn't even that long, but maybe to get it to look fuller?
