Default "The Two Mrs. Garretts"

Or is it three? lol

Does anyone else find it a little odd to "get used to" the new Mrs. Garrett in season two? Every time I watch the series through, I'm so used to the chubbier, fuller-faced Mrs. Garrett that when I watch "The New Girl", it's always a bit startling to me to see her so different. Of course she's much slimmer, but what really takes some getting used to for me is her face. It looks more "deflated" to me for a while (and makes her look older IMO) and takes some getting used to, since she lost so much weight, and had a very chubby face.

Of course I'm glad she lost the weight if that's what she wanted, and she does look good, it just takes some getting used to for me at first. But then by the time season comes along, she eventually fills out in her face a little more where it looks like a nice medium between the chubbier season one and the "deflated" season two, and fits her really well.

Yes, the weight loss is distracting (especially since she just said a few episodes earlier that she was going off her diet! .

But for me, the most distracting thing is the loss of the wig between seasons 1 and 2.

Wait, what do you mean a wig???

Please don't say it was a wig!

I refuse to believe without proof!

Proof, or "poof"!

That's some delayed response!

I thought you knew? Look at how much wider and taller her hair is during season one. Look at how her natural hair has a part near the front.

Still refusing to believe!

She lost weight because in real life because of health issues. The writers and producers probably had several references for her to loose weight to give motivation for her to loose weight. She had seen a dietician at the time to loose weight.

Probably my opinion is unpopular but I like her look in season 2. She has a good look in seasons 4 and 5 too

I found her the prettiest on season 3: her hair was deep red then, and it suited her very much!

I think it's just a hell of a lot of hair spray in the left picture. I think it's her real hair. It seems consistent to the right side pic...only much less hair spray making the hair look more natural.

I will still believe it's the real hair unless we have solid proof!

Of course it was her real hair: she was still wearing the 1960 s hairdo like in 'HAIRSPRAY' ha ha!

Look at the picture on the left. No-one has a hair line that even. The picture on the right shows her natural hair line, unevenness and all. Check the DVD cover for Season 2 and you will see Charlotte's natural part line.

But her hair could have been styled that way for the "uneven" look.
