Advisor to the US president, Ivanka Trump, has got social media talking with her new look during her trip to Latin America, opting for a short-cut bob. The presidential daughter, tasked with promoting the White House’s Women’s Global Development and Prosperity Initiative (W-GDP), made headlines with her $170 J.Crew blue midi dress with a red belt on Labour Day, as she boarded the Colombia-bound plane, and a snow-white suit when she arrived in the country’s capital Bogota.
The new collar-length bob, which is much shorter than her signature long waves, completed the power-look. She first parted with her long hair this July, opting for a shoulder-length hairdo, but as the Daily Mail points out, she must have had her hair cut even shorter, and the change has not gone unnoticed.

The new hairstyle seems to have caught the fancy of commenters online.

Some appreciated the whole look.
Love the ladies' clothes. Especially that Red Coat! Beautiful! I like Ivanka's haircut too. https://t.co/saXiNfS4Xp— MaggieRedBoots #MAGA #KAG #Patriots 🇺🇸 #Trump (@MargereyC) September 3, 2019
Some seemed to miss her long hair, however.
@IvankaTrump Sorry Ivanka, You look much better to me with long hair.— Bill Carpenter Sr. (@Vmaxbill) September 3, 2019
But others expressed an opinion that the whole topic is shallow and isn’t even worth mentioning.
How about the media focus less on her looks and her fake job and more on her history of nepotism, fraud and corruption?— Jennifer (@jerseymom473) September 2, 2019
This should not be normalized.
Look, a new haircut.— Seeking Justice (@combienDUtemps) September 2, 2019
Several noted, apparently, joking, that this change might be a signal of even bigger changes to come.
I've been in Florida too long: when a woman sports a radically different hairdo, it's often to obscure "face work"— RON COULTER (@RONCOULTER) September 2, 2019
so when you noticed they look different, you think hair.
There were also those who simply preferred to trash Ivanka Trump and her father.
Everyone is talking about #HurricaneDorian (I call it #HurricaneDorain) but nobody is talking about Ivanka's new hairstyle. #QAnon says I should call Ivanka the shadow #FLOTUS because she is in better shape than that other woman #Tiffany Trump. https://t.co/HvqYpQ9cRt— Donald J.

Who cares about Ivanka's stinking haircut. We are all paying for it one way or the other. She was not elected to represent me in any way.— Adele (@CheerSquad88) September 2, 2019
