Just when we thought Gigi Hadid couldn’t get any more gorgeous, she (somehow) has, thanks to her fresh haircut. While we *loved* her long, thick, voluminous dark blonde locks on the runway at the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show, the new look Gigi debuted on the red carpet at last night’s American Music Awards is even better.
Gigi showed up rocking a bob at the AMAs and everyone (including us) noticed. It’s shorter than we would’ve expected her to go — it’s definitely not a lob — as it’s a slightly choppy, chin-length cut (anyone else think that this cut makes Gigi look a LOT like her Real Housewives of Beverly Hills mom, Yolanda Foster?). It didn’t look like she added color to her hair, so you’ll notice a slightly darker shade closer to her roots while the tips fade out into a lighter blonde. So pretty.
Always a trendsetter, Gigi went for the #WokeUpLikeThis route and opted for a casual style for her new ‘do on the red carpet. Her loosely-straight hair (you know, hair that’s straight but not straight-as-a-board) was slightly slicked back and swept to one side. Simple as that. We love how she let her new cut be the focus of her look instead of an intricate style — it also shows off that pretty lace-up top.
We’re not saying this dramatic cut definitely has to do with her recent breakup with Joe Jonas, but we have some suspicions about the timing. Oh, also — we’ve all been there. Our DIY Editor Kelly recently revealed that her (now) perennially purple locks were originally a result of a breakup and need for some sort of change. Whatever the reason, we say — slay, girl!
