We'd say these new looks from Bella and Gigi Hadid are hair-raising, but really ... they're hair-absent!
The supermodel Hadid sisters (Bella is 25, Gigi is 27) struck a serious pose on the catwalk during Marc Jacobs' Fall 2022 collection on Monday. And what struck people the most about their look wasn't so much the clothing ... but their seriously-edgy hairstyles! Check this out:
Both of the Hadids sported long dark locks with high bangs and a cut-away, bare section of their heads from the side crowns to the nape. (It's a bit more striking for Gigi, who usually wears a lighter shade of hair.) The serious cut marries their serious look and reminds us of Sean Young in 1982's "Blade Runner."
A Vogue reporter said as much while reporting on Jacobs' presentation at the New York City Public Library. The collection veered between "excess" and "spareness," noted the magazine, adding that some of his color choices resembled "hospital scrubs."
Vogue continued, "Adding to the dystopian vibe: the models’ hairdos, which were 'shaved' on the sides with bumper bangs in a style that called to mind Sean Young’s 'Blade Runner' replicant."
Spoiler alert, by the way.
Here's another take, courtesy of Bella's Instagram (swipe for two other similar images):
Vogue's use of quotations around the words "shaved" makes us wonder if the Hadids really went for the full hair removal. The long locks certainly aren't theirs; Bella posted an Instagram in April of her new pixie cut, while Gigi was still blonde and shoulder-length with her locks as of late May, as seen in this Instagram image.
Still, it's possible they both went in for the shave! Either way, it's yet another way the Hadids get us talking.
Sometimes it's about (maybe) underarm hair; sometimes it's about swapping hair colors; and sometimes it's as simple as going blonde. Severe or simply fabulous, these two know how to let their hair down.
