NEW YORK — “No bad hair days,” reveals Lina Hoss when asked about her cropped do. Fact is Lina has likely enjoyed more than 1400 such days since the age of 16-years-old when she resolved to cut her hair short. She admits to wearying of having long hair, a look that she says everyone seemed to have where she grew up just outside of Hannover, Germany. So one day Lina cut her hair short and the rest, well, is history. To say Lina has made the most of her look would be an understatement. Lina’s short hair not only emphasizes her exceptional beauty, but distinguishes her from just about every other model in whatever room, runway, or photo set she finds herself. A year ago her look landed an unforgettable cover of i-D by Daniel Jackson, which to this day is used on the front of her comp card, not to mention profile. Lina has also featured in a variety of advertising campaigns over the last two years of full-time modeling, including the current Gucci campaign by Glen Luchford. Lina’s runway CV has always been impressive having walked for amongst others Louis Vuitton, Valentino, and Saint Laurent, but this past season it was burnished all the more with appearances for Proenza Schouler, Burberry, and Gucci. What is the secret to Lina’s success? An insatiable curiosity for all aspects of fashion, oh, and plenty of chewing gum, both have helped stave off bad days, be they hair or otherwise.
