Model Gigi Hadid created quite a stir on Sunday night, November 22, as she arrived at the American Music Awards in Los Angeles, making many jaws drop in surprise. Has the 20-year-old rising star of the fashion industry cut off her gorgeous signature blonde locks to opt instead for the totally on-trend bob?
Many beauty journalists across the globe have already been debating about whether Gigi has actually gone under the scissors or whether she her stylist has worked some magic by disguising her long locks somehow - whichever way round it turns out to be, we absolutely love this look on Gigi!
Why we love the look
There are so many things we love about this sudden hairstyle change - where should we start? Well, to begin with, it is so exciting to see the Victoria's Secret model and all-American icon - with her beach waves, sun-kissed skin and killer figure - decide to shake up her style and carve a new path for herself: you look great, Gigi!
And what a better way of switching up her style and making a statement than by opting for one of the hottest hairstyles of 2015: the one look that has taken the celebrity world by storm! The bob - whether you choose a longer cut like Karlie Kloss, or whether you go for a slighter shorter mid-length look like Gigi - may seem daunting but it is still completely versatile and a chic way to stay fresh and on-trend this winter.
How to copy it
As we mentioned above, Gigi's new length that she debuted at the AMAs last weekend is a good mid-length cut for a bob: not as short as Lily Collin's pre-pixie style and not as long as Karlie's most recent longer cut. Simply ask your stylist for all one length ending about 2 inches above the shoulders.
Gigi chose to keep her style simple for the Sunday night ceremony, pushing her front locks away from her face to create a straight and sleek swept-back look. Copying this look couldn't be simpler: start by getting your hair smooth and straight with a flat iron, but don't forget to use a heat protection spray first!
Then warm a coin-sized amount of rich, nourishing hair oil with your fingertips before running it through your lengths from root to tip, sweeping your hair back in the process. Fix your hair in place with a spritz of hairspray and you are all set!
