Martha went on to say that while she understands that having a platform can expose you to a larger audience of people, it can often be too much to bear.
Especially, as she details, when most people feel they have a right to comment on her appearance as it falls into the category of “well, you’re a public figure".
It comes as she says that most of the responses to her new look have been along the lines of saying she was "so much prettier with long brunette hair”, or that she looks “so much older", and even some that ask “have you lost it?".
"Let’s make this really clear… idgaf about being ‘pretty’. That’s an outdated priority for women. I strive to be strong, independent, intelligent and driven. Keep your ‘pretty’ to yourself and I’ll keep doing what I’m doing," Martha said in response to those types of comments.
Martha added that she "loves" her hair the way it is now, and that she also "loved it long and dark too".
"I feel really good and I’m more confident than I’ve ever been rocking this new look. The truth is I never had the confidence to cut my hair or even wear it differently for a long time," she said.
"I hope you all find the confidence to wear your hair, or make up or that dress you’ve always wanted to wear in any way you please.
“And don’t let anyone stop you from doing what YOU want," she added.
The 32-year-old, who has gone through a number of hair transformations since her long-brunette days on MAFS, first showed off her new style last week on her Instagram Story.
The first of her new dos was revealed at the 2019 ARIA Awards following the show, where Martha decided to debut her new bob cut.
Then sometime last year, the light brown look had its moment, followed by a dramatic blonde bob, and then long mermaid strawberry blonde locks.
And we're sure Martha will continue to stun with more new looks to come.
