Model and musician Sky Ferreira is the latest “styling muse” of backstage brand fixture Redken. She appeared last night at an industry event alongside mane master (and the company’s creative consultant), Guido Palau, sporting an Edie Campbell-like mullet and color inspired by Marc Jacobs’ Spring 2014 runway (a show she also walked in this past season). “This has everything you shouldn’t do in hair,” explained Palau of Ferreira’s new style and the rooty bowl cuts he created at MJ, “but it becomes the archetype of what’s chic and cool.” And aside from her willingness to take a beauty risk, Ferreira is a natural fit for the brand’s newly expanded and repackaged styling line (launching in March 2014), because she grew up in a salon—literally. Her grandmother, who raised her, was a hairdresser, and the in-house beauty parlor would eventually be transformed into Sky’s bedroom. “She used to chase after me with a brush,” quipped Ferreira, who didn’t do her strands due diligence as a child. In the end, it appears, she showed granny who’s boss.
Similar to the way Myspace used to be the social media outlet of choice for musicians, many young visual artists and creative types are using Tumblr as a platform for self-expression. Phace-Side, a blog that recently caught my eye, features intriguing drawings of notable people by 28-year-old Brooklyn-based costume designer and stylist Savannah Wyatt. “I used to make blind contour drawings of my friends for laughs, and I thought it would be funny to draw celebrities,” she says. The simple lines and bright colors juxtaposed with stark white paper call to mind the face charts used by makeup artists to plan and document a look. “I love the way that designers, like Marc Jacobs, use hair and makeup to get their stories across,” she adds. Above, five drawings Wyatt created exclusively for Style.com, inspired by her favorite hair and makeup statements from the Spring 2014 runways.
Celebs—whether their style is outrageous or tame—seem to be taking a cue from Marc Jacobs‘ choppy Spring 2014 wigs and intentionally exposing their roots. Style.com’s platinum blonde social media editor, Rachel Walgrove, who is currently showing off her “dark side,” has affectionately dubbed this look “saving money.” And apparently the phrase “Stars—they’re just like us” rings true (at least when it comes to color touch-ups). Both Nicki Minaj and Dianna Agron showed up on red carpets last night baring the hue they were born with. Perhaps the dying ombré trend is taking higher ground.
When Karlie Kloss saw a stampede of choppy crops storming the “bombed-out beach” of a runway at Marc Jacobs, I wonder if this phrase, coined by Joan Rivers on Fashion Police, crossed her mind: “Bitch stole my look!” While I highly doubt the derogatory portion of the statement came out of the sweet Midwestern native’s mouth, her hair (or more likely, a wig), seen on the pages of Interview‘s October issue, certainly bears a striking resemblance to the bowl cuts seen on the catwalk. And with Victoria Hunter of Whittemore House doing the dye jobs for both the glossy (likely shot before the show) and the designer, it’s no wonder they share the same grown-out, grunge-meets-surfer aesthetic. The only question that remains: Who wore it best?
“Wigs have become the new hats—they’ve taken over and look really fresh.”
Above, we pay homage to the boyish bowl cuts we’ve seen thus far this season at Marc Jacobs and Fendi. As for the best thing about this high-fashion hair fad: You can remove the choppy crop just as fast as you try it on.
