Why Barbie Is About to Become Your New Hair Muse
Celebrity hairstylist Jen Atkin is best known for providing the Kardashians with their always perfect boxer braids and Chrissy Teigen with those epically tousled beach waves. It’s safe to say that to get penciled into Jen’s busy calendar, you kind of need some Hollywood clout. So who is the newest star to sit in Atkin’s chair? Why, that’d be Barbie, of course.
The two have teamed up to create and share four looks on Barbie’s Instagram, inspired by today’s trendiest hairstyles. The first to be featured: the high pony (one of Khloe Kardashian’s signature styles). In the caption of this photo, Jen is quoted saying, “This is the definition of #ponytailgoals with a super thick, high, flirty textured pony a lot like versions I’ve done on several of my celebrity clients. I love how her dark strands pair perfectly with a dark lip, it’s so downtown NYC chic!”
This has shaped up to be sort of a major week for Barbie. Yesterday she and all her new, diverse friends were featured in an adorable new Target swimsuit campaign. What’s next for the iconic doll? Could she soon have her own H&M collaboration? We can’t say we’d be surprised. Be sure to check back on Barbie’s Instagram to take a look at the three other hairstyles Jen and Barbie come up with.
