We’re starting to sense a beauty trend at Chanel Haute Couture. At this morning’s show, models sported wild, choppy mohawks—an evolution of the spiky hair seen on the Spring ’14 runway. Perched in the front row, Kristen Stewart appears to have taken the hint with a fresh, cropped cut. Not only did the latest face of Chanel ditch her signature long locks, but she punctuated her new ‘do with a few fiery orange strands. (Perhaps she took a page from our rainbow hair color guide?) She likely spritzed some texturizer through her roots, swept her length to one side, and let the style air-dry—perfect for the hot, humid summer months ahead.
Hair was piling up on the floor backstage at Anthony Vaccarello when I came upon mane master Anthony Turner’s station. He was carving his way around the head of Brit beauty Sam Rollinson. “He said, ‘Listen, I really, really, really need Sam in the show, but I prefer her hair how it was,’” Turner said of his conversation with the designer. “The only way to get around that was a wig.” Over her twenties bob sat an updated version of her previous “hard-lined, seventies bowl,” but this time it was more “aggressive” and “rock ‘n’ roll.” Choppy, “chewed-up” layers were snipped in the same vein as short-haired catwalkers like Edie Campbell (who inspired the Joan Jett-esque shags at Marc Jacobs a few seasons ago). “I was thinking if I had got the chance to cut Sam’s hair for real, how would I do it. Now I have the chance to do just that,” explained Turner. “It’s very deconstructed, a bit all over the place—almost as if she’s done it herself,” he said of the final result. As for Rollinson, she’s ready to sport this style for longer than ten minutes (the approximate length of a runway show). “I really like it, it’s really cool,” she said of her new crop. Turner’s last piece of advice to the model who is planning to grow her hair out: “Let me cut it for you next time.”
Model Nadja Bender appears to have snuck in a visit to the salon mid-New York fashion week. She posted this photo of her cropped cut on Instagram, with the caption “New hair, so do not care!!!” She joins catwalkers like Hilary Rhoda, Sam Rollinson, and Lakshmi Menon, who all recently opted for more than just a trim.
Update: We were faked out by a wig yet again. Fellow catwalker Jamie Bochert commented on the new pixie and asked if it was in fact faux. Bender’s response: “Yeah, wish it [wasn't] though.”
