Kaia Gerber on Confidence, Beauty Lessons From Mom, and Golden-Hour Selfies
During any other year, Kaia Gerber would have been right in the middle of another Fashion Week when she hopped on a Zoom call with us, but because of the current circumstances (read: global pandemic), she was sitting at home with plenty of time to reflect on the last year — and that epic pink-hair moment.
In an effort to control the uncontrollable happening around her, she turned her attention to her hair: "I, like many people, decided to take [the uncertainty] out on my hair, so I bleached it," Gerber told POPSUGAR. "I'd always wanted to have pink hair, so I went pink." (This was in August 2020, and she documented the entire thing on Instagram.) But the color was short-lived.
With her shoulder-grazing brown hair back to its natural state, she admitted that while it was fun and exactly what she needed at the time, she doesn't recommend it. "My poor hair — it was like, 'Stop. OK, please stop,'" she said. "I really appreciate my natural hair now."
That's not the only thing she appreciates more now; she also used this last year to "get to know the woman I've become." The new Marc Jacobs Daisy Eau So Intense Eau de Parfum, which Gerber is the face of, couldn't represent that more perfectly. "It feels like a new scent for a new grown-up chapter of my life."
Ahead, Gerber shared how she fights her insecurities, her evolving perception of beauty, and more.
