Bella Hadid’s At-Home Hairstyle Was Inspired by a Childhood Photo
Being isolated at home has inspired a number of people to try something new with their hair. Whether it’s a major makeover like going for a buzz cut à la Taika Waititi or letting grays grow in like Kelly Ripa has decided to do, having a little more time on our hands at home and a new sense of freedom to play around with our appearances has been a bit of a silver lining during a strange and stressful time. And Bella Hadid just showed her followers that having a little low-commitment fun with hairstyles can be inspired by looks you haven’t tried in years.
On Wednesday, April 1, Hadid posted 11 photos from a self-directed photoshoot at home — shared over three posts on her Instagram grid — in which she’s wearing “her favorite yellow jacket,” according to one of the captions. She’s not wearing a shirt under the jacket, and other than a little jewelry, the only other way she has accessorized with a dark bandanna.
The timeless look involves the bandanna being folded into a triangle and tied behind her head at the neck. As she has been wont to do lately, Hadid also left a few pieces of ’90s-esque tendrils fall from her hairline.
And where, pray tell, did Hadid get her inspiration for this style? A couple of hours after posting the series of photos to her grid, she shared a childhood photo of herself on her Instagram story in which the supermodel, no more than six years old in the picture, is wearing a pink, floral bandanna in the very same way.
We can only hope this starts a trend among celebrities and regular folks alike, in which we all dig up photos of childhood hairstyles and reenact them in the privacy of our homes — and in selfies on Instagram, of course.
