For nineties kids, bowl cuts conjure up awkward middle school memories…and even more awkward memories of growing them out. Some of the style’s standouts from the era: JTT, Lloyd in Dumb and Dumber, and, though it breaks our hearts to blow up his spot, even Leonardo DiCaprio (he briefly dabbled with the trend, and damn, did he make it look good). But leave it to Marc Jacobs (and Miley Cyrus) to take something “wrong” and turn it into something so right. Case in point: models Sarah Bledsoe and Nora Vai, who both opted for choppy crops at W‘s party at Sotheby’s this past weekend. This duo inspires us to forgo the bob and skip straight to the bowl.
When we spotted this 27-year-old in Bryant Park last week, we were obviously transfixed by her daring embrace of the Mary Stuart Masterson-in-Some Kind of Wonderful shaved-back, full-top crop—and even more hypnotized by how well she was pulling it off. Then she revealed the truth behind her successful late-eighties, early-nineties revival effort. “I’m actually a hairstylist,” she divulged. “I just wanted something fun that was a little eighties but also a little modern.” Mission accomplished.
