Borrowing a page from Vivienne Westwood’s Spring 2014 beauty book (where makeup artist Val Garland flicked models with black, brown, and metallic paint to re-create the look of splashed mud), Lindsey Wixson and photographer beau Joachim Johnson opted to get down and dirty in New Mexico. Mother nature—in this case, at least—makes the best maquillage.
Lindsey Wixson looks a lot like Pebbles Flinstone in Chanel’s latest ads with her burnt orange strands, head-topping ponytail, and extra-large pearls reminiscent of the ones Wilma made her signature. When it comes to hair accessories, however, the dinosaur bone has been replaced with a more petite black bow. [Refinery29]
We remember the days when American Girl dolls wore a modest bonnet (Kirsten Larson, we’re looking at you) and schoolgirl braids (Molly McIntire, anyone?). The latest addition to the collection, Isabelle Palmer, goes to a school for the arts and has pink ombré hair. The toy is also available with piercings. We imagine a pint-sized jar of Manic Panic isn’t too far off. [Huffington Post]
While we don’t know who debuted it first exactly—the doll or Alexa Chung—the Brit style star posted a photo on Twitter touting her new purple tips courtesy of L’Oréal Professionnel.
Designed to be added to a traditional cleanser for “extra exfoliating” results, Previse Skincare is bringing EE MarineGranules, a botanical-based marine mousse, to market in March. Shopping for beauty products is beginning to feel like an episode of Sesame Street. [WWD]
Kate Moss celebrates her 40th birthday this month and in celebration, Paris Première (a French television channel) is airing a documentary—Looking For Kate—on January 12th that examines her rise to fame. If only the Couture collections coincided…we’ll just have to wait for the film to appear on YouTube with the rest of the world. [Marie Claire UK]
When celebrities chop their hair they get a few million likes on Instagram, but when a model decides to brush a few inches off her shoulders, it can be a career changer. Case in point: Edie Campbell. Her Joan Jett-inspired shag forever skewed the world’s perception of the mullet and skyrocketed her to the top of the fashion world in 2013 (confirmed by her Model of the Year award win at the British Fashion Awards). Rihanna and Lindsey Wixson would even follow suit. As would a bevy of other catwalkers (albeit temporarily) at Marc Jacobs Fall show, courtesy of Guido Palau and a collection of 55 wigs. If Edie can effectively bring back the business-in-the-front-party-in-the-back style, we can’t wait to see what beauty statements she makes in the New Year.

There’s been many a hair makeover lately—Coco Rocha, Lindsey Wixson, and Constance Jablonski have all brushed several inches off their shoulders, and our own Brittany Adams spotted Ava Smith sporting buttery strands at several castings (shown at top). And who could forget the Karlie, the bob that got everyone abuzz backstage at the Victoria’s Secret show this past November? All in all, a simple cut-and-color appointment carries a lot more weight when you’re a model—especially if you’re trying to break into the runway scene, like 17-year-old Solomiya Zgoda (shown below Smith), a relatively fresh face at Ford Models from Ukraine.
Zgoda’s agency tasked hairstylist Pasquale Ferrante and colorist Mauricio Bermudez of Ion Studio in Soho with creating an ambiguous look with a balance of femininity and virility. The salon is no stranger to the women of the runway; Ferrante recently chopped model (and girlfriend to Jake Gyllenhaal) Alyssa Miller’s long hair, and the rest of the team has done everything from touch-ups to total overhauls for at least fifty other catwalkers this season. (The place was packed with ladies well over 5′ 9″ when I was there on Friday—and they were certainly too lithe to be basketball players.)
Bermudez’s inspiration for Zgoda’s hue was virgin winter snow—he cocktailed his toner with hints of ash and violet to make it as pastel as possible. “The color has varying tones and an iridescence—like the inside of a seashell or metallic car paint—that looks good under the lights on the runway,” he explains. As for the choppy crop, Ferrante said he wanted to give her something edgy and set her apart from the many girls with collarbone-grazing cuts available to casting directors. According to her agent, Ali Fordham, this platinum pixie has been a head-turner thus far—she’s on option for several shows. Looks like nobody’s putting this blonde baby in the corner for Spring ’14.
As if Beyoncé’s big chop wasn’t enough to set the social-media world on fire, now Coco Rocha has one-upped Mrs. Carter by live tweeting the entire process of her pixie cut for Allure. “With my job, my hair is constantly dyed and fried, and it won’t grow any longer, so I decided it was time to get rid of it,” she told the glossy. Tilda Swinton served as the model’s muse, and hairstylist Anh Co Tran was the one wielding the scissors (with the exception of her husband, James Conran, who made the first snip). After lopping off three long ponytails, Rocha decided to go even shorter on the sides—resulting in a rebellious red swoosh on top. The newly cropped ginger is heading into the impending Spring 2014 season (along with the likes of Lindsey Wixson and Constance Jablonski) with far less weight on her shoulders—and we can’t wait to see her new signature style up close and personal in just a few weeks.
