While everyone was distracted by the new season of MAFS, Martha got a dramatic new chop - and she's quietly killing it


By Jess Pullar
A brand new season of Married at First Sight is upon us, and while the shiny new cast and a fresh dose of drama is enough to have us hooked, our favourite stars from seasons past are still giving us plenty to talk about.
Case in point: Martha Kalifatidis.
You might remember the stunning Greek make-up artist from season six. She married school teacher Michael, has an uncanny Kardashian-esque vibe, and who could forget that glorious glass of air-borne red wine?
Yep, Martha has given us plenty to talk about over the past 12 months, but while our attention has wavered somewhat of late due to a brand new season of the wildly popular show, the 30-year-old starlet has subtly been working some magic.

If you follow Martha on Instagram, you'll be well accustomed to her trademark Kardashian-style selfies, her love for all things make-up... and the heartwarming fact that she's still well and truly loved up with her MAFS 'husband' Michael Brunelli.
Seriously, these two give us so much hope for the new season! While they kept their relationship relatively low-key on the show, with no notable bust-ups or dramatic outbursts, it seems they've found a rare breakthrough in making an on-screen relationship work off-screen.
But there's another thing we've recently come to majorly vibe with on Martha's Insta page - her hair.
Late last year, the reality star went for a dramatic chop, and thus began our newfound hair obsession.

As the new year rolled around, it seemed Martha couldn't help but mix up her chic new 'do once again.
If you look at her Instagram, you'll notice it reads like a glorious timeline of her humble lob - it gets shorter and shorter ... and chicer and chicer, might we add.
In early February, the stunning brunette shared a mirror snap of herself and a pal - and we reckon she's reached peak lob.
Wearing a plain white outfit accessorised with a Fendi cross-body bag, Martha's perfectly primped mermaid wave hair is what dreams are made of.

What makes the whole thing even better is that we barely even noticed the hair transition even happening.
Sure we were slightly taken aback when the 30-year-old chopped her waist length locks last year, but ever-so-subtly, she's settled into short-hair life like a certified pro.
Much like her and Michael's understated, yet genuine relationship, which has only blossomed with time, it seems Martha's enviable head of hair is doing the exact same thing.
We've certainly got the definition of #HairGoals over here.
