Whenever a celebrity debuts a dramatic new chop, it's always difficult to know if the new 'do is permanent or some hairstyling trickery. Gigi Hadid has fooled us before, debuting retro bangs at Paris Fashion Week last year (the fringe was faux), and even shocking us all when she stepped out onto the red carpet at the 2015 American Music Awards with a chin-length bob—which turned out to be a very well-styled wig.
This morning, many a Hadid follower scrolled through their Instagram feeds to find a surprising photo of the model sans her dirty blond locks but with a bleached blond pixie cut in their stead. At the time, the only caption accompanying the photo was a trio of the scissor emoji. Hadid is always one to stay ahead of the trends, but this usually manifests itself in her fashion-forward street style while her tresses remain their signature length. Fans took to the comments to weigh in on the new look, and guess whether it was some April Foolery or the real deal.
It wasn't long before Hadid herself set the record straight, commenting, "Jokes, jokes … happy April Foolz Fwenz."
