Ruth Bell, the Model with the Buzz, Swears by Cheerios
She can go through a family-sized box of cereal in two days. But that’s not the only beauty tip she has to impart.
The British model Ruth Bell was doing perfectly fine when she had long hair. She had been working since 2013 – along with her twin sister May – and she booked consistently solid gigs. Then: the buzz cut. For the spring collections last September, Bell, 19, opted for a dramatic, almost apocalyptic buzz cut and the fashion houses came calling: Versace, Gucci, Etro, Burberry. Here, the model with some 30,000 Instagram followers (and growing) breaks down her beauty routine and reveals the scent she stole from the boys.
Describe your look in three words:
Very short hair.
Beauty from the inside:
I love nuts and legumes — peanuts, cashews, almonds. Also, natural cranberry juice.
I currently don’t have one due to my crazy schedule! Walking to work is probably the most constant routine.
Snack of choice:
Cheerios. I can go through a family-sized box of Cheerios in two days. I think it’s a skill.
Nothing too complex; I cleanse and moisturize in the morning and before I go to bed. That’s it!
Favorite hair professional:
Paul Hanlon. He’s beyond.
I don’t really take baths, but I’m reading Ed Stafford’s Walking the Amazon right now.
To be honest I can’t sit still for too long, so spas are not my thing!
Always in your suitcase:
Always two bottles of perfume, so I can switch things up — nighttime vs. daytime.
Fragrance of choice:
Bleu de Chanel, even though I’m a girl!
Best advice from mom:
My mom was the one who inspired me to start cleansing and moisturizing my face. To this day I still use the same cleanser she does, but I change up the moisturizer!
Best advice from the pros:
Paul Hanlon showed me what grade to cut my hair, so I’ve always used that as reference when I do it myself.
Robin Williams. His humor was beautiful.Follow Us:
