Chop Chop / Super Model Style Cut

The haircut of the year has arrived. Vogue is calling it the Chop, others have named it the Karlie, after American super model Karlie Kloss. Ms. Kloss, already a fashion world veteran at age 20, cut off about seven inches of her dark hair late last year. Vogue declared it the “cut of the moment” in a four-page feature story in the January issue, saying “the season’s new hair is swingy, sexy — and refreshingly easy to wear.”

The style was the brainchild of the New York hairstylist Garren Defazio. The length, at just below the jaw, wasn’t so short as to be “out of proportion,” Mr. Defazio said. It rests just above the shoulders, with some layering in the front, and is topped off with bangs. He is emphatic that it’s neither a bob nor a shag, but a one-length cut with a slight layer in the front. It’s a low maintenance look that sets off the face. “I cut it to encourage her natural wave,” Mr. Defazio said. “It’s long enough so she can gel it back, add extentions for a longer look and it’s modern because it’s airy and rumpled. As for Ms. Kloss’s feeling about the cut, Mr. Defazio said: “Karlie in love with the new look and can’t stop touching it.” She doesn’t have to blow it dry, just shampoo, put on lipstick and mascara, and she feels finished and modern.”
Versions of the style cut, with its length hovering somewhere between the chin and the shoulder, and with a few layers and fringe of bangs, has been spotted on models like Arizona Muse, Catherine McNeil, Karen Elson and Lily Kwong.
When Kate Moss cut her hair really short, everyone started cutting their hair,” Mr. Defazio said. “When somebody notable finds their look, it catches on and becomes a trend.” The Chop has inspired an array of reactions online. Some ask is “Karlie Chop Haircut: The Next ’Rachel’?” Is short hair styles back in style. What do think ???
