Nicole Kidman's “Jellyfish” Haircut Is Uncharacteristically Edgy

Nicole Kidman's Jellyfish Haircut on Cover of Perfect

There are good haircuts, and then there are haircuts that stop you in your tracks – and Nicole Kidman’s latest look firmly falls in the latter camp. The actor was recently interviewed by Jason Campbell for the cover of Perfect Magazine’s latest issue, and not only was she seen with hip-length red hair, but she also sported the perfectly on-trend “jellyfish” haircut.

For the unfamiliar, the jellyfish cut is the latest iteration of animal-inspired haircuts (remember “octopus” and “cobra” cuts?), and the style looks pretty spot on to its namesake: it’s a mix between a mullet and a bowl cut, with sectioned-off layers between the front and back sections of hair. “It’s essentially a version of a mullet that plays on shapes and contrasting lines,” Gregory Patterson, celebrity hairstylist and colour and styling expert for Sally Beauty, previously told POPSUGAR.

Kidman’s version of the look was styled pin straight, with the top section bluntly cut at chin length. The rest of her hair was left to flow down her back and to her side, with very subtle layers added throughout to add some texture. The hairstyle is a bold move for Kidman, who can typically be seen in more classic styles like loose waves or low chignons. While we don’t know for sure if this is the start of an edgier, more risk-taking beauty era for the star, for now, all we have to say is that she looks incredible. Observe her latest hairstyle below.
