Gertrud Hegelund by Andreas Öhlund for Cover February 2011
I want to lop off my hair right this instant. Before I saw the shots of her blunt bob, I was ready to write off Gertrud as the standard girl next door model (fits the mode, but isn’t a particularly interesting model). With her hair cut, she suddenly became so much more interesting. Perhaps because the current trend of romantic long seventies hair has been boring me. That look is certainly pretty, but boring. Or perhaps she just feels more charismatic with shorter hair. In any case, I like the easiness of this editorial. I didn’t love all the looks, but I do like the overall feel to the editorial. Not to mention, that bob isn’t too put together; razor-straight would have been too perfect. Getrud just displays easy chic hair. Put together without being too contrived. And sometimes, it’s about having a good hair day to put one in an excellent frame of mind.
