From bobs to top knots, all anyone could talk about on the 2015 AMAs red carpet was hair. Gigi Hadid nearly broke the Internet when she showed up with a short, choppy bob. Twitter erupted with questions: When did she cut her hair? Is this a response to her high-profile breakup? If she didn’t livestream the cut on Periscope, did it even happen? As it turns out, we had nothing to worry about. Gigi didn’t cut her hair after all.

Instead, the Victoria’s Secret model just wore a short half wig. Mind blown. According to Teen Vogue, her stylist Bryce Scarlett “used Gigi’s own face-framing shorter layers as a guide and then attached a half wig to the back of her head.” He blended the hair then made it look messy and effortless using Matrix Style Link Texture Builder. And that’s how the #JustOneNightBob was born.

Of course, half wigs are nothing new. They’re an easy way to try a different look, like a short haircut, without committing. Kudos to Gigi for experimenting with a new style, even if she sparked a Twitter meltdown in the process. We can all rest easy tonight knowing Gigi’s famous flowing locks are still intact.
