There are few things more intimate and magical than a bathroom haircut from a friend, a relative, or a lover. The technique is also one of Jane Birkin’s secret beauty tricks. In a piece for The Guardian, she writes, “My best friend cuts my hair with kitchen scissors.” The 66-year-old fashion icon also likes to keep it simple with her favorite outfit, “an old pair of jeans, Converse and a man’s jersey.” She “[colours] her hair mousy brown and [wears] makeup only on stage.”
Birkin expresses some nervousness about her age and admits to contemplating a nip or a “tuck,” but she seems to have a beautiful perspective on aging, watching her body change with curiosity and what I read as a profound respect: “My distinguishing feature is the gap between my teeth. By the time I was 20, the gap had closed up. Now it's opened again; I don't know why,” she writes about growing older. I’m happy to see the gap, Jane; you look stunning as always!
