There’s something about the start of summer that makes us want a clean slate—new clothes, new beauty products, and, most importantly, a new ‘do. If switching up your hair for the summer typically consists of adding blonde highlights and cutting long layers, why not go for something totally different? This year, we’re in favor of losing length—and we’re not the only ones! Tons of celebrities are staying on-trend for summer 2019 with short haircuts.

One of our favorite short hair transformations of the season so far is from none other than Kaia Gerber. The model and actress recruited Guido Palau, Redken global creative director, to transform her dark brown, shoulder-length mane into a chic, layered bob haircut.

This isn’t the first time Palau’s work behind the chair has caught our eye, either. He recently revived the ‘80s claw clip during Alexander Wang’s Fall 2018 New York Fashion Week Show.

Interested in an easy breezy chop for summer? Palau says you can steal Gerber's vibe by aiming for a short, androgynous cut.

Kaia’s new haircut was actually inspired by her and her desire to change her lookWe had been discussing cutting her hair for a little while now. She wanted it shorter, and for it to look a little more ‘boyish.’

Keep scrolling for all the details on how Palau achieved Gerber’s chic bob.

How To Get Kaia Gerber’s Chic Bob Haircut

Before starting the cut, Palau prepped Gerber’s hair with the Redken Nature + Science All Soft Shampoo and Conditioner. Formulated with naturally-derived birch sap, this sulfate, silicone, and paraben-free shampoo and conditioner system cleanses, softens, and replenishes moisture for beautiful, healthy-looking hair.

Once Gerber’s mane was cleansed and conditioned, he allowed the hair to air dry fully. Then, Palau got to work creating a choppy bob haircut.

“Using a razor, I kept her ends choppy while loose-cutting her hair into a sexy, short-ish bob shape,” Palau says.

To complete the look, he applied a few spritzes of the Redken Triple Dry 15 Dry Texturizing Spray and tousled Gerber’s hair with his fingers. This aerosol dry texturizing spray provides hair with airy volume, beachy texture, and medium hold for hairstyles without crunch or build-up.

Ready to try a chic bob haircut for yourself? This trendy, celebrity-approved cut is also insanely practical for beating the dreaded summer heat and is super easy to style. What more could you ask for in a summer haircut? Save Gerber’s photo for inspiration and head to your stylist ASAP.
