Well one model’s hairstyle has gone viral and sparked a major beauty debate. People are very divided on whether her hair is just part of the brand’s carefree aesthetic, or if it was just poorly styled for the photoshoot.

Just to be clear, people aren't debating whether the model herself looks good or bad because she's obviously STUNNING. It’s strictly about the hair.

People had such strong opinions that the debate went viral and made its way back to the model, whose name is Marihenny. She told The Shade Room that "the concept of the brand specifically is to show that clothes can be comfortable wearable and naturally beautiful [sic]. So the natural hair and makeup fits right in."
