If your stylist strongly advises you against taking the scissors to your hair all by yourself, it’s not because they want to prevent you from having full autonomy over your own body. It’s because they, as professionals in the field, have your best interests at heart. Think of it this way: How often do you hear a story about an unsupervised DIY haircut that actually has a happy ending? It’s the exception, not the rule. But things went a little differently for Chrissy Teigen and Khloé Kardashian yesterday, when they decided separately to take the reins on their own hair. The upside, however, was that they did so under the watchful eye of Jen Atkin, the renowned celebrity hairstylist they both swear by.
Using razor shear scissors, Teigen was able to put the finishing touches on her new 'do, a significantly shorter lob that Atkin created the same day. Kardashian took a lower-risk approach by wielding a Beachwaver, the one-touch device that creates perfect curls with just the touch of a button. Unsurprisingly, both stars headed off for their respective events with their hair looking as perfectly undone as always — and Atkin got the night off for once. (But not really.)
