The New Aggy
With all the recent talk of Fall’s severe brunette dye job, fashion’s former obsession with blond strands—of the platinum and honey variety—seems to have taken a backseat. But the industry’s reigning queen of the peroxide bottle has made us take notice of the fairer hue once again. Since Sam McKnight famously cut Agyness Deyn’s hair into a spiky pixie and colored it a shade of white cornsilk, thus coining the original “Aggy,” the British beauty has dabbled in all manner of hair alter egos: There was the black bob and the pseudo mohawk-plus-fade, before Deyn got real crafty and shaved her head clean. The last year has seen the former catwalker go back to platinum while growing her locks into a uniform, chin-grazing length. But this month, she’s warmed things up with a true golden tone, which was on display at last night’s Jameson Empire Awards in London. We’ve always been of the mind that Deyn wears platinum with the best of them, but her latest spin on the color wheel seems to suit her just fine. Do you agree?
