“I enjoyed the fact that my whole family and my girls came up with this amazing way of showing how much they loved me with a 24-hour birthday surprise,” the “19 Kids and Counting” star tells People. “Going from curly to totally straight was a shock for me, but I am loving it and I have been doing both styles, curly and straight, since the cut.”

She adds that her husband, Jim Bob, likes the cut, though his initial response was, “I do like it longer.”

“I know Jim Bob likes it long and I am trying to impress him — what he likes is what I want,” she says. “I think he was a little shocked at first, it was so straight and so different. But he does like it. I think I shocked everyone at the [birthday] party. They were very surprised.”  

Duggar’s 2-year-old, Josie, is also still adjusting to mom’s new look.  

“Little Josie kept touching my hand and saying, ‘Mommy? Mommy? Mommy?'” Duggar says.
