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. 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.
Hadid kept her hair styled the same way when she turned up at the LOVE & YouTube London Fashion Week party at the Standard later, alongside Gigi.
And when she touched down in Milan a few days later, she showed off the cut's versatility by trading in her straight styling for loose waves—which makes it seems like she might be embracing the bob for a little while longer. Then again, she's clearly been fully embracing change, so who knows what she might be feeling next?
At least we know she can work it all.
