Why She’s a Babe: It’s the bowl cut. No, seriously. Before Tao got her new ‘do this winter, she was just another pretty face. But now, she’s designer Phillip Lim’s muse–Lim loved her hair so much, he made all of the other models walking in his Fall 2009 show wear matching wigs–and she’s been named to NY Mag’s “Top Ten Models to Watch” for New York Fashion Week. She was also the first Asian model to walk for Miu Miu this winter since 2007 (lame, considering Hong Kong is Miu Miu’s single-largest market).
They may get a bad rap, but bowl cuts on women are sexy. I got one when I was 18, and not only was it liberating–like a 90′s version of burning my bra–but it actually got me more attention from men, much to my surprise. Like smart, cool men whose idea of beauty wasn’t limited to the Sports Illustrated swimsuit issue and the Victoria’s Secret catalog. Bowl cuts have also been traditionally associated with hard times, and since we’re still in the thick of this nasty recession, there may be no other look that’s more now.
Dare you to bust out those scissors.
