Lorde’s New Haircut Has Her Looking Like An Entirely Different It-Girl

Kendall Jenner and Lorde are two individuals who, despite their closeness in age, would appear to have very little in common. Kendall: major model about town, #freethenipple activist, essentially a Kardashian. Lorde: rarely shot by the paps, low-key member of Taylor Swift’s squad, brooding singer. But in a surprise twist, the unlikely duo now has one very important thing between them: a shared hairstyle. And it’s a lob.
Thanks to celebrity stylist Jen Atkin, Lorde and Kendall are now both sporting a similarly choppy, razored cut that hits somewhere between the chin and the collarbone for maximum dishevelment. “Short hair ain’t going anywhere,” Atkin captioned the Instagram debut of Lorde’s new look. The latest casualty of Atkin’s hair-cutting spree (her words, not ours), the singer’s new style is much shorter than her usual thick waves, but the cool, undone vibe flatters her well. It’s like we just discovered a whole new Ella Yelich-O’Connor under that wild mane.
