Who you calling Posh? One of the main reasons Victoria Beckham's loving her new, cropped cut is that it's crazy utilitarian.
Garren, who cut VB's hair on Friday night at his Fifth Avenue salon, (she took Allure creative director Paul Cavaco's advice--he suggested she call Garren during her cover shoot), speaks exclusively to Allure's Daily Beauty Reporter:
"After I cut her hair, she ran her fingers through it and was so happy when she realized she could do her hair herself," says Garren.
The Mia Farrow-esque pixie no one can shut up about--myself included--is perfectly suited to her whirlwind lifestyle, he says.
"She's a mother of boys and has her own fashion line. She needs a look that she can just wake up and go with." Garren styled it with just a quick mist of his Designing Spray Tonic and the cult product, Magic Move Hair Pomade.
So does that mean the rest of us overworked, overbooked, style-conscious folk should try a gamine? Garren's answer was quite diplomatic.
"The cut works on Victoria because she has such gorgeous, delicate features. Everything about her is so petite and beautiful." Tiny haircut, tiny features?I get it. (I have a more moon-y face, so I'm going to sit this one out.)
During the three-hour session, she also had her hair darkened, "so it's closer to her natural color." And obviously, won't demand as much time in the colorist's chair.
Victoria Beckham, low-maintenance? I love it.
