New year, new ‘do.
The shaved head is shaping up to be the first big hair trend of 2022, with both Demi Lovato and Savannah chopping off their locks in the last days of December.
The “Sorry Not Sorry” singer, 29, showed off her “fresh start” in a snowy Instagram video filmed on FaceTime, while the 28-year-old “Best Friend” rapper posed in a pastel bikini to unveil her bleached-blonde poolside Posed. Buzz cut.
“She’s known for her hair — her long extensions, her artsy baby hair. So it was definitely a bold statement,” Kendall Dorsey, the hairstylist behind Savannah’s transformation, told Page Six Style.
“She wanted to refresh her hair for the new year. We did it on an island — it was really a spiritual, symbolic experience for her,” he continued. “It was a lot of nerves; it took us a few days to actually do it. We got the right moment, the right time, the right feeling.” had to look for. We meditated [beforehand],
Dorsey and Sauvity drew inspiration from Amber Rose’s “Bold and Beautiful” ‘do, with stylists using Dark and Lovely dye to take the “tap in” hitmaker blonde. And she’s not surprised to see other stars opting for similar super-short cuts, either.
,[The buzzcut’s about] Releasing all the things that happened over the years, allowing for that new beginning … it’s a symbol that it’s okay to let things go, to rebuild,” Dorsey said. “And to make an iconic fashion statement!”
But this attractive hairstyle is being discussed continuously for months.
Just look at “I May Destroy You” creator and star Michaela Koel, who stood out with her signature short shave at September’s Met Gala and Emmys. Or Tiffany Haddish, who has rocked the look on and off since 2020.
And then there’s rising style star Iris Law (yes, Jude’s daughter), who fast-tracked her fashion career last summer by swapping her long, dark locks for a platinum buzzcut.
“It’s so empowering and strong for a woman, at the same time elegant. It really accentuates your facial features and gives women the confidence to dress boldly to match their hair,” says Law’s Hairstylist Larry King told Page Six Style of the appeal of the look.
“It gives a strong, impressive, and beautiful finish, and I’m a huge fan.”
King recommends that people who are interested in going for an ultra-close crop follow Law and Sauvity’s lead by reaching for bleach, “so it doesn’t look so harsh,” and ask your stylist to contact the hairline. Ask to “leave some parts soft” around. Maintain a feminine edge. ,
The right styling product can also make a big difference in making the look perfect; King uses her own Larry King Haircare Velvet Texture Clay ($30.36), which she said “has a slightly oily baseline, so it nourishes the hair, leaving it feeling soft but not fluffy.”
But for some, like Jada Pinkett Smith, the decision to shut it down entirely is more than skin deep: The “Red Table Talk” host suffers from alopecia, an autoimmune disease that causes hair loss.
“When it first started it was terrible. I was in the shower one day and I had a handful of hairs on my hands,” the actress shared on her Facebook Watch show in 2018. It was one of those times in my life When I was really trembling with fear.”
After years of sporting shorter styles, the “Matrix” star finally shaved her head in July at the urging of her daughter Willow—who has recently worn the same look.
“Willow let me do it because it was time to leave,” Pinkett Smith wrote on Instagram at the time.
