Kendall Jenner cut her hair because she got the September cover of Vogue

I always find it bizarre when someone’s haircut becomes HUGE news. But it happened last Friday when Kendall Jenner previewed a “radical” haircut on her Snapchat. Kendall is somewhat famous for her long hair, and I actually think her long hair suits her. It gives her that ‘70s vibe, a vintage Ali McGraw vibe. But Kendall’s new haircut isn’t a crazy change. It looks like she just went for a blunt shoulder-length cut, and I bet her hair has more body and fullness now. These photos, of Kendall in that pukey mustard ensemble, are from Saturday – she and Kanye went to a fashion show in LA.

Still, no one knew why Kendall cut off her famously long hair. Was it a spur of the moment decision? Was it a break-up lob? Who cut her hair? Well, according to Us Weekly, Kendall chose to cut her hair for one of the best reasons ever: Anna Wintour wanted her to. Because Kendall is the cover girl for Vogue’s September issue!

For a most fashionable cause! Kendall Jenner debuted a short haircut via Snapchat on Friday, June 10, and according to an Us Weekly source, the cut was for Vogue’s September issue. As seen in the Snapchat photo, Jenner, 20, chopped her long, silky brunette tresses into a lob style. While most of her sisters consistently change their hairstyles, especially Kim, Khloé and Kylie, Jenner has maintained the same layered ‘do since the start of her modeling career.

But it all changed when Vogue called! A source on the set of Jenner’s shoot tells Us Weekly that the top makeup artists, hairstylists and photographers were brought in and told that they were styling the model for the cover of the fashion bible’s famed September issue. Us Weekly contacted a rep for Vogue, who stayed mum on the issue. “We never comment on rumors of future editorial,” the spokesperson said.

If Jenner does appear on the September issue, it would mark her first cover for the magazine. She has appeared in numerous fashion spreads inside the magazine. She also landed the cover of a special-edition minimagazine for Vogue in April, for which she posed in a polka-dot bikini.

Yes, Wintour has allowed both Jenner sisters to model inside Vogue, but so far only Kim Kardashian has gotten an American Vogue cover. And I’ve actually been wondering if Kim isn’t “due” for another American Vogue cover. Like, every month around this time, I start wondering, “Is this the month for her second cover?” But probably not if Wintour is giving Kendall the September cover, the most prestigious issue of the year. Will Kendall’s September cover cause the same kind of drama as Kim’s cover? Hm.

    Ol’ Dead Eyes on the September issue? Lucky us.

    • Ally8 says:

      My reaction exactly. Fraternizing with the Kardashians is clearly Wintour’s last and perhaps only stab at modernity in her fossilized magazine.

      • Gina says:

        This is exactly what I’ve been thinking. Anna Wintour has seriously lost touch. It’s time for her to move on and maybe it’s also time for Vogue to move on…seriously. The September issue isn’t the prize it used to be.

    • Alex says:

      *yawn* its so sad to see how basic Vogue is these days.

      • Megan says:

        Diana Vreeland is spinning in her grave.

      • Annaloo. says:

        Why, God???!

        Wintour needs to go, Vogue needs someone better to helm it. Kendall on the cover is the epitome of boring! Give it to someone else!!

    • Tiffany :) says:

      I saw her on the cover of Bazar yesterday at the grocery store. She looks so vacant in photos. Lifeless eyes.

    • ctkat says:

      I wonder if the cover isn’t several of these new models in a “The New Supermodels” theme- Gigi Hadid, Bella Hadid, Kendall Jenner, Cara Delevigne, etc. Because Kendall Jenner is not interesting enough to be on the cover by herself, and if any of the other K sisters were on that cover with her, the story would be about that.

  2. Tiffany says:

    Yeah, tip off the press PMK. Anna can always change her mind.

    • Sabrine says:

      They’re pretty much all boring, so may as well have Kendall on the cover as anyone else. They will make her look beautiful. She seems like a nice person who doesn’t get into a lot of trouble.

      • Locke Lamora says:

        I think she’s a nasty spoiled brat, judging by what I have seen/read about her.

        And when was she known for her hair? She always had thin, lifeless long hair.

      • Val says:

        I have the same opinion, Locke Lamora…

        I don’t think she’s the nicest one at all.

  3. Patricia says:

    Um…. What? It’s not even a new style really, just several inches shorter. How boring.

    • Val says:

      Seriously! Her hair wasn’t “long” it was barely past her shoulders! This is 2- maybe 3- inches. Call me when she shaves her head or something.
      This just seems like she’s copying Kylie, whose hair is the same length now.

    • Tiffany27 says:

      I was wondering too. It’s not even that dramatic of a cut. Just looks like a trim tbh.

    • Wren says:

      It looks almost exactly like what I did when my ends were getting really bad. Cut off about 4-5″ myself in the bathroom, hair length ended up just passed my shoulders when I’d gotten it all evened out.

      Not saying it’s bad, her hair looks quite nice. But it wasn’t remarkablely long before and it’s not remarkable short now.

  4. SM says:

    What’s happening to Anna!??!???is she possesed by an alien????

    • Goats on the Roof says:

      I kissed Vogue goodbye when they put Kanye and his trashy wife on the cover. This is just more of the same. I don’t know what’s gotten into Anna. Whatever it is, isn’t good.

    • Carol says:

      LOL! I think she might be.

  5. lilacflowers says:

    She needs to dial back on the makeup for a bit to allow her skin to clear up.

    • Pandy says:

      Yes, I was snickering at her chin zits as well. Mean, but oh well.

    • prettylights says:

      I like that shade of lipstick, actually just bought one very similar from MAC. Bold lipsticks like that are great for when you don’t want to wear much other makeup on your face but want to look alive.

      Honestly out of all of them I think Kourt and Kendall wear the least makeup. Compared to Kylie Kendall looks fresh-faced and young. I’m not going to shade her on the acne though. I’ve dealt with acne since I was 15. I wear makeup but not a lot and not every day, use organic skin care, eat healthy (mostly), drink tons of water and take vitamins and I’m still dealing with it at 31. Mine isn’t awful but it’s annoying enough that I feel gross sometimes. Sometimes there’s just not a lot you can do.

      • Anon33 says:

        It is low as f*ck, not to mention incredibly immature, to mock someone for acne. Jenner or otherwise. And despite what people without acne think, there’s generally not much you can do to make it go away (just wear less makeup! Drink more water! Um been there done that, didn’t work.) I’m nearing 40 and I never had acne until I was in my mid-20s. It’s not fun to deal with and it certainly isn’t funny.

      • Venus says:

        Eating dairy makes me break out. I wake up with a whopper and junior whopper on my face the day after I indulge in pizza or ice cream. Sucks ass.

  6. Erinn says:

    One thing I will say – I have major hair envy of the K’s. They have such thick, shiny hair. It’s really really pretty. I always want to go dark – I’m naturally a medium to light brown with auburn tones – but I looooove super glossy dark browns and blacks. It’d make me look soooo dead though since I’m already hella pale.

    • Jean Grey says:

      The Kardashians have been known to wear extensions for fullness. While they do have nice hair, it’s not that gloriously thick on its own.

    • swak says:

      Her hair looks much thicker with it cut. It looked a bit straggly before.

    • GingerNYC says:

      It’s mostly extensions, you can often see them if you look close enough.

    • teacakes says:

      Very little of that hair actually grows out of their heads, you can easily have the same look by getting extensions or a wig.

  7. Hegimal says:

    I reckon Kendall is very pretty but she has y got the life experience or intrigue to make her really interesting. She’s very very boring.

  8. Aiobhan says:

    I am so glad I cancelled my Vogue subscription last year. There are so many more interesting models than her that should be on that cover Binx Walton, Andreja Pejić, Jourdan Dunn, Liu Wen, Maria Borges, Margaret Zhang, Vivian Geeyang Kim, Bhumika Arora, literally anyone other than this card board box.

    • Seraphina says:

      I agree. And it feels like Vogue has sold out the Kim and Kanye. I think the power went to Anna’s head too

      • Alex says:

        Agreed. I no longer have a Vogue subscription and I only buy if someone I like is on the cover (rare but I bought the Adele cover for instance). Now I try and have my friend send me IT Vogue when she can

    • LisaMarie says:

      If Andreja Pejić showed up on Vogue, I’d buy the shit out of it. Cover models matter to me as a representation of what I’m going to find in the pages. I cancelled my Yoga Journal sub about 5 minutes after I pulled it out of the mailbox to see Hilaria Baldwin on the cover.

    • Miss Grace Jones says:

      YES! For the Maria Borges and Liu Wen shoutout. They are some of my all time faves at the moment.

  9. GoodNamesAllTaken says:

    Thats a really hard color to wear. And her hair is more trimmed than cut. I don’t get why she’s a thing. My nieces and their friends are her age and far prettier.

  10. Lex says:

    I don’t know if it’s the cut or outfit here but she looks so much like Kris Jenner here, it’s crazy. And not in a good way. Kendall’s modeling career has been slowing down in the last year compared to her friend like Gigi, who walks in shows and is getting designer deals. I wonder how much Kris paid up to get this cover.

    • Becki says:

      I totally thought the same thing about her looking like Kris in these pics. For me, I think it’s the glasses, but she definitely looks like her mom!

  11. Nancy says:

    I think Kendall is the least offensive of the sisters. Like her or not, whether she got her modeling career out of name and fame, she’s bringing in the dollars. I think a lot of the dislike of her is hate through association. Just a girl doing her job no different than any other young model, just she is a product of that pagan. Healthy hair needs a good cut every now and again.

    • Erinn says:

      I think so too.

      Honestly… in comparison she keeps her head down and does her own thing. I don’t have any real issues with her. At least she seems to want to work, and I’m not going to fault her for that. How many every day folks have gotten a start in an industry because of connections that they have? A LOT. It’s all about who you know in a lot of ways… and I’m not going to give her flak for it.

    • GoodNamesAllTaken says:

      I think a lot of it is hate through association, too, but also that she would never have been a model without that association. She doesn’t have the looks or the talent.

    • Zapp Brannigan says:

      The least offensive of the sisters is like calling her the less smelly poop, it’s still poop.

    • Moonstone says:

      I agree. I’m not a fan of anything kardashian or Jenner but it really bothers me when people call her boring, do they expect her to make a sex tape or change her whole body and face like the others, or even pull a Britney Spears, she is just doing her thing, everybody has a different personality, not all of us are bubbly and perky, being an introvert is a good thing.

      • claire says:

        That’s not the criticism. It’s that she’s boring in a model sense. She doesn’t have “it.” No one wants her to do any of those things above, they just don’t want her chosen above others with superior talent, just because she’s part of that trashy idiotic family.

  12. Megan says:

    I like the haircut, but what is up with those glasses?

  13. nicole says:

    I always feel very weird when i see kendall with any of her brother in laws. she seems to have a borderline inappropriate relationship with them, especially scott. i can’t put my finger on it though… just something off.

  14. UCatwoman says:

    Yes, because this is bigger and more important news than the tragedy in Orlando, according to PMK.

  15. Goodnight says:

    Her hair was never really that long, and the cut isn’t really a big change.

    I’ll never understand why people freak out about a haircut. It’s hair. It grows back.

  16. Felice. says:

    It was Tyler the Creator’s fashion show. It was actually pretty entertaining. Anyone could buy tickets and he gave everyone a free pair of shoes.

  17. Brea says:

    Out of the nepotism models, I thought Gigi would get the September cover first.

  18. hey-ya says:

    …kylie is the more remarkable sister…think of how she used to look to how she looks now…she must be making 10 times more money than kendall…however, her lifestyle …poor kid..

  19. Talie says:

    You’re right…she does look very Ali MacGraw…

    • AnnaKist says:

      She always reminds me of Katie Lee, the foodie and ex-wife of Billy Joel.

      I’ve never bought Vogue, and never will. I see it now and again in the docyor’s waiting room – that’ll do me. My questions are: Why is the September issue of Vogue so important? Is it only an American thing or does the same apply in other countries? (I’m in Australia.)

  20. Lucy says:

    I want to see Rihanna wearing that whole outfit, hair included.

  21. Kimbers says:

    That length is truly trendy currently as everyone’s hair is growing back from the pixie and bobb cuts of the last few years. Glad too bc some of those ladies did not pull off short hair.

    • me says:

      Yes I’ve been seeing this length everywhere. I was going to cut my hair this length a few months ago but decided not to as EVERYONE has it now lol.

      • Eden75 says:

        Me too. I sat on the fence about cutting mine for about 2 months and didn’t. I’m happy I didn’t now. Everyone I know has either grown it out to this or cut it to this. I’m sticking with my way too freaking long hair for now. (I can sit on it. I really should cut it but, nah.)

  22. LisaMarie says:

    In much the same way that Supermodels are gone, and the term no longer has the meaning it once held, so it is with Vogue. I haven’t felt the urge to read an issue in years.

  23. Bridget says:

    It just looks blah on her. The lob looks incredible on some women, but on Kendall it just looks boring.

  24. ReineDidon says:

    Also her face looks more plastic now. Her skin isn’t thin and glossy from lasers. It is thick and plastic. I think she also went down the fillers route.

  25. Ok she cut her hair, but she’s still squinty eyed.

  26. Nicole says:

    I would rather see the hot guy that is the son of Italian Vogue’s editor than these dead eyed fish.

  27. teacakes says:

    I would have understood Gigi getting the September cover, but Ol’ Dead Eyes here? wut.

  28. Nik says:

    She doesn’t bug me. Has a legit job without boob and as$ shots every 5 minutes on social media. She’s embracing her dream of being a model.
