Just one month into 2013, we have a new official haircut! The New York Times calls model Karlie Kloss' chin-length chop the "haircut of the moment," after a four-page spread appeared in Vogue...whatever!
Let's compare shall we?
Kloss' cut is defined by its just-above-the-shoulder uniform length - Check! which is a big contrast to her previous long and wavy hair.
Her hairstylist, Garren Defazio, is responsible for the idea, and a phone call from Vogue sealed the deal. “Her hair had been worn out from shows and shoots,” Defazio told the New York Times. - Check only mine was not worn out so much by those same things!?
“Vogue called and said, ‘Would you do a cut?’ and I said Karlie should be the one to do it on.” Kloss was a little reluctant to chop it all off, as she hadn't had short hair since grade school, but her jaw-skimming cut with Jane Birkin-esque bangs is not only healthy, it’s setting a huge trend. Michelle Obama and Kylie Minogue have already been spotted with the chop...and let me just remind you that Alya did it back in November!
It was a pretty bold move for Kloss, who, like all successful models, generally tries to present herself as a clean slate; this makes it easier for designers and hair and make-up teams to create their of-the-moment vision.
Will this trend die out? It is only January, the month of big changes. Or will it take off like the "Rachel" did, driving hairstylists into a frenzy to recreate the look on women all over the country?
Did you get the Rachel back in the day? I didn't...
One thing's for sure...it will be interesting to see how the "Karlie" gets styled during New York Fashion week, which begins February 7 but I'm going to suggest that they consult AlyaBuzz for ideas!
As for me, I'm growing my hair back out cause ladies let's get real...men LOVE long hair!
