There’s A New Hairstyle In Town And This One Was Taken From The Unlikeliest Character: Introducing The Lord Farquaad Flip
In recent weeks, you might have been noticing a new hairstyle trend making its way through social media. From Selena Gomez to Khloe Kardashian, every Insta-girl has been sporting a Lord Farquaad-esque bob with a flip. Honestly, the new trend is euqal parts curious and nostalgic. Who hasn’t thought about Lord Farquaad’s hair over the years? His hairstyle was the first hairstyle many of us were able to differentiate.
Remember Lord Farquaad from Shrek?
We all know Lord Farquaad, the ruler of Duloc and Shrek’s enemy. The evil monarch plots to become King by marrying Princess Fiona, and he will stop at nothing to get what he wants —even torturing the cute Gingerbread man. Farquaad is short, and he overcompensates for his lack of inches with a big attitude and sassy hairstyle, the one that we will refer to as: The Farquaad Flip.
So why is this hairstyle trending?
Jesus Guerrero, the stylist behind the Kardashian-Jenner flips says it’s “an easy chic look” that will help you channel your inner Lord. “I love how simple it is, yet it exudes so much power,” adds Guerrero. Achieving the Farquaad flip is pretty simple. “To create this hairstyle, brushing with a small round brush is key,” Guerrero explains. “It helps create that full flipped in look.”
The long bob with the ends notably flipped inwards, aka the Farquad Flip, has made its way into Instagram’s creme de la creme, making Lord Farquaad undeniably, an influencer. And we have proof.
Here is one of the first sighting of the iconic ‘flip.’
Selena Gomez made her triumphant return to the AMAs in a (Shrek?) green Versace dress and a hairstyle that can only be described as Farquaad-ian. People were too excited about her return to the stage that they overlooked the hairstyle.
The Farquaad Flip was spotted at the TIFF red carpet thanks to the “Hustlers” cast.
Jennifer Lopez wore the cut on the TIFF red carpet like nobody else could. It looked so good on her that you kind of forget about the hairstyle being a part of the “Shrek” empire.
Khloe and Kylie were twinning in the style.
Just last week, Kylie Jenner and Khloe Kardashian drove the point home with not one, but two matching Farquaad flips at their epic annual Christmas party.
Here is Chrissy Teigen looking all cute.
Even everyone’s fave, Chrissy Teigen, has been spotted sporting the look. Coiffed by Jesus Guerrero, celebrity hairstylist to the Kardashian clan.

A little longer and with more volume, but the ends are flipped inwards and that’s all that matters.
Even Becky G in doing the flip and making it super impressive.
The ‘Mala Santa’ singer has been spotted in the style of the moment too, albeit a shorter version. There’s no escaping it!

And if a celebrity hairstylist loves it, that’s it, it’s officially a moment. The flip has been cemented.
Lastly, Bella Hadid giving us a half-up Farquaad flip moment.
