Bobs are having a serious moment right now, so trust Emily Ratajkowski to pull off the most lust-worthy of the bunch at last night’s Marc Jacobs fall 2023 show in New York. The model rarely switches up her signature long, brunette hair so was barely recognizable when she debuted a jaw-skimming Italian bob with a choppy fringe in the front row.
Rather than opt for a poker-straight version of the bob, Em Ratajkowski chose to embrace effortless, undone waves that looked as though they could have been air-dried, and a fashionable wet-look finish. “The undone nature makes it look flattering and super wearable for every day,” hairstylist Syd Hayes told GLAMOUR. “It’s great as second-day hair, too, as it’s so easy to adapt the texture.”
It’s not just the cut that Ratajkowski seems to have changed, but her hair color, too. Now, it’s a darker, almost-black shade, reminiscent of Uma Thurman’s character in Quentin Tarantino’s cult ’90s film, Pulp Fiction, albeit a less-graphic version with a softer, bedhead vibe.
In fact, the softness of Ratajkowski’s face-framing bob is also reflected in her makeup: buffed, bronzed cheeks with no sharp edges; blurry, over-lined nude lips, and eyes rimmed with a chocolate shade of eyeliner that is softly smoked out into smudged wings.
