Marc Jacobs, fashion designer and aspiring driver, has always had a lustrous head of inky black hair. Currently, he wears it cropped close to his head, sometimes shrouded by a colorful babushka scarf. But last night, Jacobs posted proof of his wild mane potential in a post that he deemed a “throw (way the f*ck) back.” On Instagram, he showed off three of his identification cards from the early ’80s. The first slide was Jacobs’s Paris subway card, a carte orange, that showed the then-Parsons student with a shoulder-grazing Farrah Fawcett–esque winged silhouette. The second slide, an international student ID card, was Jacobs at 20 in 1983, sporting a shorter but still volume-packed wavy ’do along with a pair of studious round-rim glasses. The final blast-from-the-past image was Jacobs’s card for the New School of Social Research. In this unearthed treasure, Jacobs had a rowdy party-in-the-back cut, with slightly side-swept bangs.aJacobs has had quite the hair evolution over his career. In the early aughts, he went short with a Caesar cut, and at one point even dyed his hair Kool-Aid blue. But (as these new photos emphasize) it’s his earlier hair that is truly captivating: Throughout the ’90s, he made the bold move to wear a ponytail, sometimes slicked back or simply low, like a Founding Father. In the beginning of the aughts, the designer—who, at the time, was often seen in a pert sweater and collared shirt—had a mane that resembled rumpled university professor hair. Clearly, Jacobs can add “chameleon of coifs” to his ever-growing resume.
