The Gone Girl Haircut

Rosamund Pike’s performance in Gone Girl needed a haircut to perfectly complement the plot. Don’t worry – no spoilers here – however, the woman behind Rosamund’s striking cut, Sassoon Senior Creative Director, Tina Haukjaer Andersen discusses how to get it and why anyone – including you! – can wear this soon-to-be, iconic look. 

“The Gone Girl haircut is classic Sassoon technique with a modern spin,” explains Tina. “All textures can wear this cut – curly, fine, thick, wavy - as long as the cut is tailored and personalized.”

To get this haircut, you first need to have an honest conversation with your hairstylist about your texture and how much time you’re willing to spend on your hair.
  • If you have curls and spend 15 minutes getting ready in the morning, then you can wear this cut naturally. A knowledgeable hairstylist can cut angles that enhance the texture and create a more expanded version of this look. 
  • Or, if you tend to invest more time into your hair and like a polished, sleek version, this cut can be styled with a blow-dryer and touched-up with a flat iron for any occasion. 
It’s also important to tell your hairdresser the features that you want to highlight.
  • Like to play up your eyes? A fringe is a perfect add-on to this haircut.
  • Love to accentuate your profile? This cut works well tucked behind the ears.
  • Want to highlight your cheekbones? Layers can add variation to this look.
As Tina noted, “The director [David Fincher] requested a seductive bob, so I decided to accentuate Rosamund’s elegant neckline and jawline by keeping the bob short.”

Last, you must select a hair stylist who has the education to cut this look. 

“Naturally, I recommend you visit a stylist at a Sassoon Salon or Sassoon Academy location since we all had to master this specific cut to join the Sassoon team,” Tina explains. “However, we train over 180,000 hairdressers a year at Sassoon Academy. Ask your stylist if he or she has taken a Sassoon course, and if the answer is yes, then you’re in good hands. All Sassoon courses cover the methodology behind this cut.”
