When you have less than five minutes to chat with Hailey Bieber, queen of viral manicures, save-worthy street style and much-emulated makeup moments, it can be hard to know where to start. It’s even harder when you can’t stop staring at her outfit: low-rise flared leather pants, sheer shirt, black bra, all by Saint Laurent. And then those delicious diamonds, courtesy of Tiffany & Co.?! Gagged! Lucky for us, the model and skincare entrepreneur touched down in Toronto just days after making a major hair change, so we at least had a starting point. “Honestly, I had been thinking about it for weeks and I was really back and forth,” Bieber told us at an exclusive VIP cocktail party celebrating the Tiffany Lock collection (hence all of those lust-worthy gems).
In case you’ve been off the internet for the last few days, on January 23, Bieber transformed her shoulder-skimming hair into a proper bob. Blunt and bold, the cut is sure to be the “Rachel” of 2023. So if you still have “new year, new you” energy or are considering taking the plunge on a hair makeover à la Hailey Bieber short hair, let this be your sign to go for it.
With Bieber and her new bob in mind, here are three reasons to make a hair change.
1. You can have so much more fun with your accessories
Bieber told FASHION that while she loves to collect vintage jewellery and is “a girl that loves pearls,” she also likes to occasionally mix it up. Enter the Tiffany Lock Earrings in rose and white gold, which took centre stage thanks to her short shag, and is a departure from her usual yellow gold. “Tiffany is so iconic and luxurious and I think sometimes it can seem like it’s not very wearable,” Bieber shares. “But with the Lock collection, you can dress it up or down, which is why I really like it.”
2. Hair always grows back
“The things that kept stopping me from doing it was I felt like my hair had grown stronger, and it was really healthy,” Bieber explains of her hesitation to lose a few inches. “I’m always wearing extensions. So I felt like for the first time it was like in a really good place,” she continues. But the great thing with hair is that it’s not permanent. Whether it’s the best haircut of your life or a major mistake like Claire from the second season of Fleabag, it will never stay exactly the same. If you really don’t like it, just wear a baseball cap (or a ponytail extension as seen on the show, IYKYK) for a few weeks and you’ll be fine.
3. If not now, when?
Bieber told us that after pondering a blunt bob for weeks, she just went for it. “I was like, ‘Alright, I’m just gonna do it’ because if I don’t do it, I feel maybe I’ll never do it.” Honestly, after the last three years, this is probably the best perspective to have. Wear your good bag, light the fancy candle — don’t wait for life to begin, make it happen now. And if Hailey Bieber said so… to the salon!
