Last week we brought you news of Scarlett Johansson‘s edgy new crop—and now we’re the first to get the inside scoop, straight from her hairstylist, David Babaii! “Scarlett cut her hair up to her shoulders earlier this summer. I saw her a month ago, and she’s like, ‘Let’s go crazier!’” the hairstylist told us. “When I saw her again, I gave her this extreme graduated bob. It’s a very technical cut with a punky, modernized vibe.” Babaii held his scissors perpendicular to the hair to “pick” into her strands with their tips. “By cutting at an angle, you’ll create some pieces that are thicker and some that are thin,” he explained. He also trimmed the back just about as short as he could go without breaking out the electric clippers. And according to Babaii, his longtime client expressed her reaction in a single word: “Loved!” We couldn’t agree more.
