Daria’s New Haircut, by Christiaan


There’s plenty to love in the Juergen Teller-lensed fall Céline campaign (the flamingos, the dark-cherry jacket), but it’s Daria Werbowy’s short, milk-chocolate chop that warrants a double take.

Über-creative Dutch hairstylist Christiaan (just Christiaan…or Mister Marvelous, according to Byredo’s Ben Gorham, who recently collaborated on a cologne with him) coiffed Werbowy for the ad, and shares the story—complete with process shots!—exclusively with ITG:

“Daria texted me in feb
wanna cut it now
ok come over
long dead hair
ready to lose it
months earlier in st barth
she shaved the nape with me
that was now bleached and a few inches long
braided and separate
left that alone
rest just shagged up and around face
chin length
so she was left with fresh hair
a tousle on top
instead of on the shoulder
she took a while to own it
but no one dared to put her in extensions
that brought her the confidence back”
