Hairstylist Jen Atkin is taking a moment away from her celebrity clients (Khloé and Kim Kardashian, Chrissy Teigen); her website, Mane Addicts; and her outstanding new product line, Ouai, to work with one of the baddest b*tches in Hollywood: Barbie. Jen announced via Instagram that she created four looks for the iconic Mattel doll, all focused around hot hair looks.
She said: "Just arrived at #pfw and can finally debut my collab with the biggest Muse of all time @barbiestyle !! I had the honor of creating 4 new looks for her inspired by today's coolest hairstyles. First up, the high pony! The definition of #ponytailgoals with a super thick, FLIRTY textured pony a lot like versions I've done on my clients. Do you DIE for Her dark strands pair perfectly with a dark lip? Its so NYC chic! THIS IS A MAJOR DREAM COME TRUE... I literally still have my childhood barbies shoes and brushes!"
Jen is not the first beauty pro to give Barbie a makeover — last season, makeup artist Pat McGrath started the trend.
Thanks to Jen, Barbie definitely looks like she's ready to sit front row at Paris Fashion Week with a voluminous, shiny high ponytail that begs to be Instagrammed. Her vampy lips and matching jacket seal the deal that she's still the original Queen B. Barbie's second style is an of-the-moment lob, which reminds us of the buzzy chop Jen gave Khloé in October 2015. The third Barbie is a stunning redhead with a cut Jen says she gets requests for often (long bangs and relaxed waves). And she teased that this look was likely inspired by her hair pro BFF, Lauren Andersen.
