Not a mullet anymore, wolf cut nor a nonchalant Parisian bob. Billie Eilish, a chameleon artist and generation Z idol, with the latest cut, heralds the return of another hairdressing trend from years ago.
In the middle of this year, shortly before the premiere of her second album “Happier Than Ever”, Billie Eilish underwent a metamorphosis. She replaced the scaled tracksuits with the Gucci and Chanel logos with more tailored cuts, and dyed her ebony hair with a greenish regrowth into warm blonde. With the new color, she also decided to cut type wolf cut. Like a wolf’s mane, it is made up of cascading layers of strands of different lengths. It is a mix of aesthetes from the turn of the 70s and 80s of the 20th century. The transformation does not end there.
Yesterday, a photo appeared on the singer’s Instagram profile, in which she shakes a storm of short-cut hair. The platinum bob slightly going beyond the jawline was unanimously described by the fans as Marilyn Monroe. As it turned out, it was not the star of the golden age of Hollywood that was the inspiration. Billie later published a series of photos of her mother, Maggie Baird, from years ago in an almost identical cut. “Like my mother” – she wrote, announcing the return of the old trend.
