The New NYFW ‘It’ Chop We Are Lusting Over

Move over, Lob, there is a fresh new cut in town which we are sure will be taking over the beauty world by a storm. 

The new shorter style is far more low maintenance – you can work with the texture of your natural hair – and it really embraces the 70’s trend, which, incase you didn’t know, is still huge right now.

It might only be the start of NYFW, but we have already seen the chop backstage on models and on the runway, at Brother Vellies and Creatures Of The Wind. So what is it? We’d like to refer to it as a shabby chic style, it’s a short chop with a centre parted full fringe, but what sets it apart from the rest is its wild shape.

Rather than reaching for the straighteners or getting a blow dry at the salon, this look lets you work with your natural texture – hurrah, so you can let your stressed out strands breathe for the time being. The look works best for girls with thicker hair that has some texture, if your hair is fine and straight, it might end up looking a bit drab, so make sure you add some movement with a tong and some salt spray, but essentially anyone can rock this chop.

If you are thinking of going to the salon to get the new look, ask for razor-cut layers, but they need to work when your hair has dried naturally, so make a point of saying this to your stylist, especially if your hair is curly. If you cant face loosing the length, then just go for the fringe instead and add texture to your longer locks with some texturing spray, like Bumble and Bumble’s Surf Spray, £22, which was used backstage at brother Vellies to get the nonchalantly disheveled look.

Just like the lob, we have a feeling the stars are going to be picking up on this trend in no time, and we’ve got a feeling it will be huge.
