Thought you might be interested in this pic showing much longer hair a few months before her marriage.
: Someone cut the Queen's hair very short during

: her pattern for the future, though it was a
: trip to Canada (I think when she opened the
: St. Lawrence Seaway) that inspired her
: hairdresser to get rid of the part and style
: the top of her 'do' as it is now, with
: symmetrical waves above her face. She had

: currency, but she did manage to get her
: curls from the 1940s to the very early
: 1960s, and there they have stayed ever

: in 1954 inspired the shorter cut, or perhaps
: it was the heat.
