Arizona Muse Cut Her Hair!

21 November 2011 by

Arizona Muse's chin-length, deliciously 1980s (flicky, wash-n-wear-wavy) bob has been her trademark style since she first burst onto the modelling scene all of two seasons ago, starring in Marc Jacobs and Miuccia Prada's Spring 2011 shows. Open the current issue of Grazia and there she is, scowling out from under her drapey fringe in the current ads for Next, and there she is again, in the new Louis Vuitton Resort 2012 campaign, her hair curly but contained in a chic Twenties flapper 'do (below).

Along with her feline aquamarine eyes and those chunky brows, the soft bob has always been a distinctive part of Arizona's look (okay, she has been modelling since 2008 with long wavy hair, but that bob catapulted her into the big league earlier this year). There are already Muse-a-likes who have copied her wavy 'do on every street style blog.

Well, they're all out of luck now - because the Sante Fe born model has recently de-bobbed (below) whilst on a photo-shoot for French Vogue. La Muse told our favourite beauty blog Into The Gloss, 'The thing that kind of started me was that bob... I felt like it was time for a change'.

The session stylist on the shoot - Christiaan Houtenbos - cut Ms Muse's hair; an experience she describes as 'kind of like Edward Scissorhands: it’s a whirl of hands and fingers and scissors and blades, and hair goes everywhere — it’s very exciting. And it just kept getting shorter and shorter' (N.B. Houtenbos was also cut Grace Jones' hair in the 1980s).

Well, it's a little bit shorter. So far, the new 'do looks even fluffier (dear Lord is this girl going to bring back scrunch drying?). And there's even the hint of a fringe. To be honest, it's a little hard to see what is going on in there. But it's definitely not a bob.

Or as Arizona describes it; 'it looks boyish because it’s short, but I feel girly…it’s a little pixie-ish. But it can kind of look like anything... But short hair grows really fast, it’s not a myth—I already feel like I need another haircut.'

It's definitely not as distinctive as the bob, but maybe that's the point.

So now the question is, is Muse bigger than that bob? Time will tell...
