Bella Hadid has been playing chameleon with her hair all summer. First, she surprised fans by going just a bit brighter, and then she went full blond with a hair change that looked wildly similar to that of her sister Gigi’s. Now, she’s had yet another transformation: She’s chopped off several inches of her hair and is currently sporting a very chic blond bob that actually resembles a cut she’s had as a brunette.
Hadid definitely likes changing things up, but we’d gotten used to seeing her with dark hair. It was an easy way to tell her apart from Gigi (who is basically her twin now), and it was a color she said she’s had since she was really young. “I started dyeing my hair when I was 14. I dyed it black and blue, I wore eyeliner—I was a punk kid,” she told Glamour in 2016. “I might want to go blond eventually!”
Looks like she was onto something.
She first revealed her sharply angled bob at London Fashion Week while walking in Burberry’s spring 2020 show. The cut is blunt and hits just at the chin, which according to Hadid’s Instagram, was “dreamt up by Riccy” (meaning, Burberry chief creative officer Riccardo Tisci) and chopped by the show’s lead hairstylist Sandy Hullett. For the show, Hullett kept the style simple with a straight-down-the-middle part and pin-straight blowout.
