Hilary Rhoda Opts for a Chop
Hilary Rhoda lopped off a good six or seven inches this week at Ion Studio in New York City—just in time for the Fall 2014 collections. Hairstylist Pasquale Ferrante said fellow catwalker Alyssa Miller (whose strands he also snips) served as the inspiration. “It’s the first time ever that Hilary’s gotten her hair cut short,” he noted. “She had enough of looking the same.” Ferrante opted for choppy layers that framed her face, allowing her brows and bone structure to take center stage. “Models tend to start here, this way they have the option to go further or just grow it [out],” he explained. Upon seeing Rhoda’s name on his schedule, Ferrante was equally as surprised as us when we received word that the brunette beauty wanted to make a major change before fashion week. “When I saw her name, I thought it was just a dream,” he quipped. All of the hair left behind on the salon floor, however, proved that this was no model makeover mirage.
