The Real Star of Gone Girl ~ Rosamund Pike’s Bob


The latest ‘IT’ girl is wearing the latest haircut! Lets look no further than Tina Haukjaer Anderson, she should know a thing or two about it ~ she created it!

Rosamund Pike’s undercut bob shape has been the buzz of Hollywood ever since that fantastic thriller ‘Gone Girl’ came out last month, based on the novel by Gillian Flynn.

I would say if Ben Affleck hadn’t gone all full frontal on us, he would’ve got his thunder stolen by Rosamund and her ‘Tina’ bob.

While watching the movie, you can’t help but admire the razor sharp bob that was on the big screen, every movement Rosamund made, the hair swung with her. Even during the dramatic gory scene, her hair looked perfect! So, it does not surprise me to find out that, that haircut was done by a fellow Sassooner, Tina Haukjaer Anderson.  Ah! of course, now it makes sense, Vidal Sassoon, ultimate master of bobs.

Tina works at Vidal Sassoon training School in Beverly Hills as Senior Creative Director. Her expertise was fully utilized when she was called upon to style all the hairstyles for her friend Rosamund Pike’s character Amy Dunne in the movie, including all the wigs.

Here’s abit of Tina’s insight about the hair (excerpt taken from Sassoon Academy)

– “The Gone Girl haircut is classic Sassoon technique with a modern spin,” explained Tina. “All textures can wear this cut – curly, fine, thick, wavy – as long as the cut is tailored and personalized.”
– “The director [David Fincher] requested a seductive bob, so I decided to accentuate Rosamund’s elegant neckline and jawline by keeping the bob short.”

Anyway for those of you who have seen the movie, you know exactly what I mean, and for those who have yet to see it – GO!! Its been a long, time since an actual haircut has made such an impact on women around the world, creating a frenzy of women wanting their hair cut off to the perfect bob. I applaud you Tina for bringing that classic look (with a twist) back to life.
