Jonathan Van Ness Just Debuted a Lob Haircut, and I’m in Love — See the Photos
This weekend, Jonathan Van Ness said goodbye to his long hair and a great big “hello!” to the lob life. That’s right, folks: Queer Eye’s resident groomer got a short haircut, and to absolutely no one’s surprise, it looks gorgeous. (As in, gasped-when-I-saw-it kind of gorgeous.)
The Fab Five’s beloved hair expert revealed his new cut on Instagram in an adorable selfie taken with the woman behind the magic: hairstylist Sherene of Arté Salon in New York City. The photo features JVN tucking some of his hair behind his ear to show off the cut, with Sherene smiling beside him in a polka dot mask and bright blue eyeliner.
“Got a new cut by @sherenethequeen I use to work with Sherene during my lovely time back at @artesalonnyc,” reads the caption.
From the looks of the photo, Van Ness had several inches taken off, seeing as his hair used to reach the middle of his back — and now it’s just grazing his collarbone. As for why he chose to go short, well, there’s a solid chance it has to do with how hot and humid the weather’s been this summer; perhaps he simply wanted to take the load off for a lighter and fresher feel.
He’s clearly not alone in wanting to go short for summer — some might remember that fellow Fab Five member Antoni Porokwsi recently debuted a dramatic buzz cut, which fans went wild for.
Speaking of which, based on the comment section of Van Ness’s post, people are loving his new look as well. Case in point: They’re leaving comments like, “Effortlessly chiiiiic,” “Such beautiful hair!!!!!!” and “um YES fresh cut 👏🏾.”
Needless to say, we’re obsessed with JVN’s short hair transformation and can’t wait to see how he continues to style it. In the meantime, check out his secret to perfectly air-dried waves.
