Allure Exclusive: The First Look at Brooklyn Decker’s Short Hair

 

Brooklyn Decker is the latest celebrity to part with her long, tumbling waves and join Kate Mara, Emma Stone, and Halle Berry in the clan of the lob. “I get bored very easily and wanted to chop it off,” says the actress. “And Sienna Miller’s cropped cut made my decision very easy.” We got the first look at Decker’s awesome new cut and spoke with the team behind it.

“I made the first ten-inch chop to prepare for Brooklyn’s color, and everyone was very excited,” says colorist Rona O’Connor of the Lukaro Salon in Beverly Hills. She lightened Decker’s base tone to a golden blonde, added threads of ivory and strawberry for dimension, and faded the ends to a pale champagne for a sun-kissed look. Then Rona’s husband (and Lukaro co-owner), Luke O’Connor, stepped in to create the bob.

The first step was to tackle thickness. “She has so much hair, and that’s not a problem when it’s long—the more the better. But for her new bob, my challenge was to it thin out so it didn’t expand into what I call the sphinx look: flat on top and wide at the bottom,” says Luke. He started by lightening the bulk of hair underneath with thinning shears. “They’re measured by the percentage of hair they cut out of each section,” he says. “For example, I have 10, 20, 30, and 50 percent pairs. For Brooklyn, I pulled out the 50 percent one.” Then Luke cut vertically into the outer layer of hair to blend all the lengths together and create a jagged edge. “I like that I sort of look like a dude. It feels much more rock and roll now,” says Decker.

Oh and yes, Decker is wearing a T-shirt with a picture of herself picking her nose. On the plus side, it’s for charity!

Will you support Michael Kors’s Watch Hunger Stop project?

Michael Kors has devoted the month of October to the fight against world hunger by creating a network of global support.

The designer is urging its fans and fashion industry colleagues to show their support on October 16 for World Food Day, a United Nations initiative.
Watch Hunger Stop t-shirts will be distributed outside Michael Kors boutiques in New York, Berlin, Tokyo, Hong Kong and Rio de Janeiro. Recipients are encouraged to have a photo taken wearing the t-shirt, which will then be live streamed on billboards in Times Square.
During the whole month of October, Michael Kors customers will also be able to add a $5, $10 or $25 donation to their purchase, which will go directly to the United Nations World Food Programme school meals program.
Kors has already helped supply over 1.5 million meals to hunger-stricken children through the sale of his specially-designed 100 Series watch, which was launched in April 2013 with Halle Berry. For every sale of the watch, 100 meals are delivered to hungry children.
Kors is eager for a social media conversation to ignite dialogue about the solution to poverty and hunger. “Our hope for World Food Day is to get people talking about hunger, and about the many ways they can help address the problem. Donate, volunteer, talk, text, tweet – really, everyone can be an ambassador,” said Kors in a press release.
