Did Christie Brinkley go to cosmetology school and not tell anyone? The former supermodel, 66, just gave her daughter Alexa Ray Joel an at-home haircut (because, quarantine), and the final result is seriously impressive. She shared the before and after shots on Instagram.

“Hair Today Gone Tomorrow! (Swipe 👈🏼),” Brinkley captioned the post. “Alexa Ray asked me to cut her hair because she wanted a change...she wanted Sass with Class 🌹 and I think we did it ! Et Voilà! My beautiful baby!🐆💋”

In the first photo, Joel’s hair is very long, reaching her bottom, and in the following pics, it falls just below her shoulders. Brinkley ended up chopping off a full foot of hair (!!!), per a reply to one of her comments. Joel must really trust her mom.

Hundreds of Brinkley’s followers were blown away by the transformation and her quality of work. “I can’t believe you gave her that cut,” one person wrote. “So professional 👍” Another added, “Just beautiful. You nailed it.” Brinkley replied: “Thank you! Between u n me I was stressed out! Big responsibility!” Even celebrity hairdresser David Lopez complimented the outcome. “Wow Christie!” he wrote. “You’ve def picked up some tricks!”

Joel and her sister, Sailor Brinkley-Cook, loved the final look as well. “‘Anything you can do, Mom can do better’...🌹🎶 @christiebrinkley what can’t you do?” Joel commented. “This haircut makes me wanna sing grown woman by Beyonce,” Cook wrote.

It’s possible that Joel’s new ’do was actually inspired by her mom, because Brinkley herself just debuted a fresh, shoulder-length cut. And yes, she chopped it herself.

The style first appeared in a gallery of photos from a family boat outing, and hairstylist Kevin Mancuso commented, “New cut? - you know I love the straight hair x 😍” Brinkley replied: “I did it myself! Did I do ok? 👍🏼?👎🏼?” Fans gushed over the new look. “I like your hair! Very becoming on you!” one person commented. “Hair is so chic and youthful looking!” another added.

This newly discovered skill of Brinkley’s shouldn’t come as a huge surprise, considering how much of her career hinges on the beauty industry. But at this point, she may need to open up her own salon.
