Kaia Gerber Is Staying Right On-Trend With Her New Cut

As the daughter of supermod Cindy Crawford, and with a buzzing modeling career of her own, 17-year-old Kaia Gerber is typically the one starting trends, but even she was eager to get a jump on one of summer’s hottest hairstyles: the chin-grazing bob. 

Gerber took to Instagram over the weekend to debut her new ’do, courtesy of Redken Global Creative Director Guido Palau and stylist Sandy Hullett. “We had been discussing cutting her hair for a little while now. She wanted it shorter, and for it to look a little more ‘boyish,’” Palau says.

To achieve the effortless look, Palau prepped her strands with Redken Nature and Science All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner and let it air dry. “Using a razor, I kept her ends choppy while loose-cutting her hair into a short bob shape,” he says. “Once the cut was finished, I sprayed a few spritzes of Redken Triple Dry 15 Dry Texturizing Spray and tousled with my fingers to give the look a sexy, summer feel.” Mission accomplished.
