Talking Undercuts With Freja Beha Erichsen, Supermodel And Activist

-------


As we made our way around the steamy backstage area at the InterContinental Paris Le Grand Hôtel for Balmain this afternoon, we spotted something unexpected as models meandered around makeup artist Tom Pecheux and coiffing star Sam McKnight’s respective stations (more on that in a bit)—namely one Freja Beha Erichsen. Erichsen skipped New York, London, and Milan for Spring, making Balenciaga her season opener earlier this morning. And not only was Erichsen there, in the flesh, about to get her hair done, but she was rocking a freshly shaved undercut. “Sam did it for me,” Freja said when we inquired about the eighties-era punk mainstay that’s having a bit of a moment of late. “He did it a couple of months ago but just touched it up today. It’s complicated stuff,” she joked of the style that simply requires a razor and a devil-may-care attitude. It turns out Erichsen wanted to talk about the complicated stuff. “I’m trying to get everyone to donate a day’s salary on October 4 to Doctors Without Borders,” the Danish stunner told Style.com about a charity initiative she has taken up. “I’ve always admired what they do around the world as first responders—and in some cases the only responders,” she added.
