Gigi Hadid Proves She's A Cool Mom By Debuting Strawberry Blonde Locks In Her Runway Return — See Photo
Gigi Hadid showed off new reddish locks as she hit the catwalk for the first time since becoming a mom. The star's hairstylist Panos Papandrianos called her new look "ginger hotness."
The model debuted her fresh hair while walking the March 5 Versace show during Fashion Week and shared a selfie on Instagram that same day, captioning the post, "surprise."
"Opening & closing @versace is always an honor," Hadid gushed of the show, adding it was the "best" way for her to come back to the industry. She noted how "lucky" she felt "to be healthy, working, and in a safe/tested environment," where she could hug everyone she wasn't able to see during the early months of the pandemic.
"Thank you to everyone who made this possible, especially my Italian Taurus queen Donatella Versace," she added.
Hadid's friends couldn't get enough of her new 'do, with model Lily Aldridge commenting, "So beautiful G," while Queer Eye star Tan France wrote, "OBSESSED."
Her dad Mohamed called her "Strawberry muffin head with a cherry on top."
The Versace show marked one of the first times Hadid got all dolled up since welcoming her and boyfriend Zayn Malik's first child, daughter Khai, in September.
In a makeup tutorial, she admitted she doesn't always find the time to wash her face, and "I don't brush my hair for a few days" — but she noted that she wants to try and start spending more time on self-care, telling fans, "We should all try to focusing on taking time for ourselves."
"Just remind yourself you're doing the best you can," she added. "You're doing amazing. And to just give yourself grace. And if you've brushed you hair this week, I'm really proud of you."
Hadid seemed to inspire younger sister Bella, who dyed her own locks just days after. "We pulled an image of Stephanie Seymour from the ’90s as a reference," Bella's hairstylist revealed to Vogue. "Stephanie had soft warm highlights to frame her face and everything else stayed dark. We glossed her hair to a rich brunette and then I balayaged a few highlights around Bella’s face to emulate the warmth of Stephanie’s color."
