Ever since Princess Charlene cropped her long blonde locks back in April, she's become one of our favorite royals to keep track of. We love how her short 'do can really transform a look depending on how it's styled (swept to the side and chic, pushed back and fierce, full-frontal bangs and casual... the mind reels).

During the match between Chelsea and Atletico Madrid in Monaco yesterday, we were treated to photographic evidence of her hair's versatility when Princess Charlene wore a red dress that she had just worn the month before during the London Olympics. The royal's hair was styled in a slicked-back pompadour, resulting in a smart and elegant look.

For the dress' first run in London, the Princess of Monaco went for a more laid-back feel by cutting down on the hair product and leaving her mane in a more disheveled shag. It's a very cute ensemble, but something about it is a bit lackluster when you compare it to her beauty look from yesterday.

While we're fans of both styles (a girl can't be expected to maintain a perfect coif everyday after all), our fave has to be Charlene's trendier, pushed-back look. Which hairstyle do you prefer?
