Short Cut: Jennie Penny

Jennie Penny, 26, is a freelance illustrator, writer and assistant to the artist Jeff Koons. Her hairstory is a common one for people with uncommon curls: “I've always had a complicated mane – dry, brittle and thin,” she wrote, “and I envy those with sleek, straight and fall-into-perfect-position hair,” She dreamed of “a confident cut that I can feel good about and not immediately reach for the iron, hair putty or a hat!” Her hair went from shoulder-skimming to skull-hugging, and she can now claim, “My hair is the last thing I worry about when getting ready in the morning.”
