As a model, Alessandra Ambrosio is used to changing up her look. Now the 16-year Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show veteran is jumping on the bang bandwagon. However, unlike many stars who have rocked faux fringe this year — from Lea Michele to Karlie Kloss — the model really made the cut.
Hairstylist Frankie Foye shared a photo of the model mid-haircut with the caption, “Let’s cut bangs!”
Ambrosio was clearly feeling her bold new look, showing off a picture of herself post-haircut on Instagram. She captioned the shot, “Private Island . Bahamas.”
The Brazilian beauty escaped to the Caribbean with fellow models, including many who also participated in the Victoria’s Secret Fashion Show in Paris a couple weeks ago. Although Ambrosio didn’t appear in the shots, Elsa Hosk, Bella Hadid, Emily Ratajowski and more showed off their modeling skills on Instagram with the Bahamas beach as their set.
Although Ambrosio rocked long flowy locks for this year’s fashion show, many other models opted to go with shorter ‘dos. Last year, model Maria Borges made headlines for being only the second VS model to walk in the show with her short, natural hair. This year, Borges was joined by models Jourdana Phillips and Herieth Paul in embracing their short, natural curls, calling themselves the “Buzzcut Angels.”
Other models eschewed the typical long, loose waves, opting to wear their hair as they normally do, including Alana Arrington and Dilone, who kept their hair short.
