The Mohawk’s Many Faces
The half-shave, Alice Dellal’s oft-copied take on the popular punk/eighties style, has been making fewer appearances in paparazzi photos recently (it’s all about gray hair these days). But it’s still fair game for editorial purposes, it seems, with an inspiring tribute popping up in this month’s Interview magazine. Iselin Steiro stars in this spread, which uses a hair and makeup evolution to show how the short-on-the-sides/long-on-the-top coif can go from soft and pretty to hard and sexy with a little help from industrial-strength sculpting gel, some serious blush, a strong black cat-eye, and a smear of black lipstick. Admit it: You’re kind of shocked by its versatility, right?
