And just like that, another celeb got bangs. Hailey Bieber made the chop for the October cover of British Vogue, and her 70s-inspired, shaggy style is totally on trend. While celebs like Sophie Turner, Julianne Hough, and Hilary Duff made everyone want bangs for summer, Bieber’s blunt fringe is what we’ll be copying this fall.
Bieber’s new look is courtesy of New York City–based hairstylist Panos Papandrianos, who went with choppy, lash-skimming bangs. The longer fringe flows seamlessly into her face-framing layers, which add dimension to her long, straight strands. It’s extremely possible that Papandrianos created the look with clip-in hair, especially since his Instagram caption says the style is “custom made fringe,” but we’re loving it nonetheless.
On the cover, 22-year-old model is also rocking her natural skin (and freckles!) and a trendy wide-brimmed hat, serving all the fall style inspo one could ever want.
Bieber’s cover goes beyond her gorgeous haircut, though. In the accompanying interview, she gets real about her insecurities within the industry and how she used to feel inferior to her fellow model friends. “My burn in the modeling industry has been slow, and I’ve had to learn to be okay with that,” she shared. “I’m shorter than most of the girls. Even though I’m 5-foot-8 [inches], I’m not a runway girl and I totally used to feel inferior to some of my friends. Look at Kendall [Jenner] and Bells [Bella Hadid] and Gigi [Hadid] … they’re all tall and doing every runway.”
But eventually, Baldwin was able to carve out her own unique path. “It was disappointing until I found my own lane,” she continued. “I don’t look short in photos. You can make it work and not have to do runway, and I’ve done a good job with that. I’m proud of myself for building a more commercial career that worked for me and being confident about it. I’ve hosted a show, I did major American campaigns, and a bunch of other things that I’ve really enjoyed. Sometimes I feel like I’m still finding my lane, but now I know I’m going in the right direction.”
