To say that the fashion industry loves Karlie Kloss‘ not-so-new haircut would be an understatement. We ourselves squealed a little when she chopped off about seven inches and got blunt bangs back in November, and there’s been no shortage of coverage surrounding the models’ tresses. The latest is a piece in the New York Times, which is a few months late on the uptake and doesn’t even include an interview with Kloss herself.
“Karlie’s been looking for a new look. Her hair had been worn out from shows and shoots. Vogue called and said, ‘Would you do a cut?’ and I said Karlie should be the one to do it on. I cut it to encourage her natural wave. It’s long enough so she can gel it back, and it’s modern because it’s airy and rumpled. Short hair is in. I’m so tired of the soft wave, red carpet hair. Like dead straight hair, wavy hair got old. Some of the other models are taking their hair above their shoulders and in the salon, women are taking their hair to collar bone and above. It’s a natural look.”
Great. In more recent Kloss news, she covers The Daily Front Row‘s Berlin issue, and reveals her plans for the future in the interview:
“Harvard at some point is in the plan, but all in good time,” Karlie Kloss told Daily Front Row Berlin (hat tip Fashionista). “I have always had an interest in medicine; my father is an emergency room doctor. Now that I am getting more and more involved in these entrepreneurial projects I think business is something that would also be fascinating. To have a better understanding of economics and business, and the way to run a successful company. Tyra [Banks] did it. She went to Harvard business school. I can do it, too.”
Someone should probably tell Kloss that Banks went to Harvard’s Owner/President Management Program, and that it’s not to be confused with the Harvard Business School (or the undergraduate program, for that matter).
