In a Guardian article about picture books that refuse to stereotype girls…

Abie Longstaff’s Fairytale Hairdresser series has been praised for its strong message to young readers.

“I’ve also been won over by Abie Longstaff’s Fairytale Hairdresser series, considerably more nuanced and subversive than they appear on the surface. Dear to my daughter’s heart for their glittery hairstyles and plethora of outfits, they’ve bit by bit become dear to mine too, featuring royals who work for a living, princesses who retain their identities after marriage, and Kittie Lacey, the Fairytale Hairdresser herself, who works hard, defeats evil-doers, shows solidarity with the girls she helps – and shows no sign of needing any chap to rescue or marry her”
