I haven’t had a model crush since my teens, but I’ve been following New York-based, Lithuanian model Nora Vai (née Giedre Vaisnoraite) on Instagram for a while now, and I can’t get enough of her doe-eyes, gamine features and her ability to transform—she is at once, edgy, innocent, tomboyish but also incredibly sexy—an absolute chameleon.
Of course, it’s also difficult to get past that incredible bowl cut, and she makes me crave a short crop (if only I had that face!).
Prior to becoming a model she studied fashion, dabbled in styling and streetstyle photography, and had designs on staring her own label. Although she resisted the call to the modelling world, chopping her hair cemented her place in the industry.
At a push I’ll be requesting this hairstyle on my next trip to the salon, unless my hairdresser advises against it. No doubt she probably will.
