There was a time when the mere mention of Scandinavia conjured images of towheaded stunners and naturally platinum beauties—but a recent survey of modeling’s most recognizable faces tells a different story. These days, the same Danish catwalkers who dominate the industry also lead the pack for a new national signature in the form of their perfect golden brown hair color. Case in point: There is theater student–turned–model Mathilde Brandi, the full-browed and lush-lipped beauty who captured the eye of casting directors at Calvin Klein Collection, Coach 1941, Céline, and Isabel Marant last year—making her an instant honey-haired standout on the runways. Caroline Brasch Nielsen’s long, tousled tawny layers perfectly frame her slivered cheekbones, while Regitze Christensen opts for straight, highlighted strands that she often piles into a messy topknot. As for Victoria’s Secret model Josephine Skriver, her precise shade of brunette conveys the kind of bombshell sensuality that’s perpetually Insta-ready. And the veteran Queen of Cool, Freja Beha Erichsen, is crowned with a headbanging shag of chestnut hair to match her devil-may-care, off-duty style. Here, in honor of Copenhagen Fashion Week, see the great Dane stunners and the sun-kissed brunette manes that define their looks.
