There comes a time in every It Girl’s life when she decides to succumb to 2017’s hottest hair trend: the beach-wavy, collarbone-length lob. For Elsa Hosk, longtime Victoria’s Secret model, Justin Bieber music video star, and former professional women’s basketball player (true fact), that day of reckoning was Thursday.
The Swede debuted her newly weightless ‘do on Instagram on Thursday, posting a sultry selfie in which she wears a black Chanel sweatshirt and distressed denim jacket, and her wavy blonde locks are artfully tousled and partially cover her piercing blue eyes. “Short Hair don’t care!! ?✂️?? been wanting this haircut for years.. finally did it, I feel like meee,” she exuberantly captioned the photo, crediting celebrity hairstylist Danielle Priano for the style. Priano also posted a photo of the model on her own Instagram account shortly after Thursday’s makeover. In hers, Hosk’s hair is blown straight, showcasing the edgy face-framing layers of the haircut. “#rockerchic new #haircut on @hoskelsa #hairbydaniellepriano ??????????????????,” she captioned the picture, a selfie Hosk appears to have taken in the backseat of a car.
Now that she’s crossed “chop off a foot of hair” from her summer bucket list, the 28-year-old can get back to her regularly scheduled summer plans: “Forgetting about city, work, and stress” and “taking more vacations,” as she told W earlier this summer at Revolve’s Hot in Havana pool party in the Hamptons. At the soirée, she also revealed her summertime anthem (“‘Despacito.’ I love to sing along to that one even though I don’t know what I’m singing”), her beach read (“I just started The Handmaid’s Tale but I’m not sure if I like it yet”), and genius sweatproof beauty strategy (“Less makeup, more fanning”). It probably won’t hurt that, just in time for extra muggy August, she’ll no longer have to worry about a long curtain of hair trapping the heat and getting stuck to her neck.
