MAFS groom unveils major hair transformation

Married at First Sight Australia star Stephen Stewart has debuted a new hair transformation with fans.

The reality TV star, who appeared on the 2024 series of the Australian dating show, took to Instagram to unveil his new hair cut, ditching his long locks sported on the show for a considerably shorter style.

Earlier in the day he'd asked fans if it was "time for a chop" in a Q&A, with 60% voting for "DOOOO ITTTT!!".

The MAFS groom is a hairdresser by trade, owner of SRS Hair based in Perth, Australia. Though it's unclear whether he cut his latest hair style or not.

On this year's show, Stephen was matched up with fellow groom Michael Felix, who was the latter's second choice of husband after contestant Simon Flocco decided to withdraw from the experiment ahead of their nuptials.

Nevertheless, Stephen and Michael hit it off on their wedding day, but things took a backward seat after their honeymoon.

Stephen later admitted that Michael wasn't his usual type when it came to dating and was struggling to form a romantic attachment.

Things came to a head when Stephen was caught sending flirty messages to another man. Michael confronted his groom about it, with Stephen confessing: "The fact that it came so easily with a stranger I had never met...[I realise] we are fighting a losing battle."

Michael admitted he felt "disrespected, confused, upset, hurt, and angry" by the discovery and the two mutually agreed to leave the experiment following the couple's retreat week.

In an interview with Daily Mail Australia in March, Stephen shared an update about his relationship with Michael post-show.

"It's really recent that we stopped talking," he said. "I thought we had a really good relationship where we would check on each other just as the months went but that's dissipated as the storylines gone on, which is, yeah, really disappointing."

It seems Michael is still single after the show with his Instagram biography reading: "Still on my journey to find love". Stephen has not shared his relationship status publicly since leaving MAFS.
