Okay, so the picture above is a bit deceiving since Joy Duggar does not have pink hair. Still, she decided to make a change to her hair recently. Since her marriage to Austin Forsyth in 2017, Joy has had the freedom to truly be herself.
She is totally not the submissive, subservient wife she may have been raised to be.
She lives her life the way she wants to with her family, and that’s awesome. She should not be bound to the expectations imposed on her by her parents.
In fact, Joy spends time working with her husband on home remodeling projects. They also spent time outdoors going hiking together. How sweet!
So, now that we know Joy marches to the beat of her own drum regardless of her upbringing, let’s talk hairstyles. The Instagram post below is what Joy’s hair used to look like. She sported cute bangs, or fringe to those of you not from the US, and honestly, she rocked the look. This is even a recent picture, from January 15, 2020.
So when exactly did Joy get rid of the bangs? Well, she originally got the bangs in November 2019, and just a few days ago (in February 2020), Joy posted a picture on Instagram and the bangs were GONE. For those of you that are curious about her new look, the post is below. Joy currently still has very long hair, but no bangs. Where’d they go?! I mean, they don’t grow out that fast. We all know the pain of growing out a short haircut or bangs. So. Much. Pain. But Joy’s bangs are just magically gone when one would think that they would be in some awkward stage of growing out.
On January 20, Joy posted the picture below on Instagram. You can see that she is holding those bangs back with a headband. We all know the reason for that, don’t we ladies? Those bangs were probably super annoying to deal with. While bangs are very cute and can totally change up someone’s look, they still are hard to tame at times and require styling daily.
If Joy got rid of the bangs because she absolutely COULD NOT stand them, that totally makes sense.
Below is another Instagram post from December 2019, after she made the choice to get bangs. Her hair is held out of her face in this picture too. I mean, Joy is a mom, and while moms can style their hair just like anyone else, moms tend to have less time to do so.
While Joy hasn’t commented on the reason for losing the bangs, it honestly doesn’t matter. She rocks her new hairstyle just as much as the one with bangs.
