Backstage at Fashion Week, a reporter asked legendary hairstylist Orlando Pita what he thought the "haircut of the moment" was. In response, Pita practically recoiled: "I am so sick of magazines telling women that they need to look like one thing in particular. I would never answer that question. Hair is all about individuality."
The remark was met with more than a few smiles, because, in our age of tapping everyone from Jennifer Lawrence to Siouxsie Sioux for inspiration, he couldn't be more correct. Why try to define a generation when beauty is finally — albeit slowly — becoming more democratic?
Following Pita's philosophy, we decided to create a fall haircut story that was neither definitive nor preachy, but rather, fun and (hopefully) inclusive. Here, you'll see singers, models, and other stars who've won us over with their bold — or not-so-bold, but still beautiful — cuts.
