Chrissy Teigen and Jen Atkin continue with their joke feud on social media as Teigen pretends to fire Atkin: she says she will now be ‘saving a lot of money’.
Jen Atkin is a celebrity hairstylist who is known for being behind many famous hair-do’s. She works for Kendall Jenner, Khloe Kardashian, Jenna Dewan and Chrissy Teigen. With Teigen, Jen has a hilarious back and forth going on social media: every couple of weeks, the two throw digs at each other by way of captions and comments. Teigen has taken the joke feud to a whole new level by jokingly firing Atking from her glam squad altogether.
Taking to her Instagram story, Teigen said, “Looks like somebody is going to be saving a lot of money because she doesn’t have to pay Jen Atkin to do her hair anymore, oh hello.” She then showed off how her hair was piled on top of her head and held back by a large cloth headband. The style was significantly different from the glamorous designs Atkin is known for.
About two weeks ago, Jen threw shade at Teigen when she posted a picture of the cookbook author with John Legend, daughter Luna and her own husband, photographer Mike Rosenthal. She captioned the photo, “Anybody else starting to think Luna looks a bit like Uncle Mike?”
The two also went at each other when Teigen took to Instagram to wish Atkin a happy birthday. Posting at the very last hour, Teigen wrote, “17 minutes left happy birthday to my very funny and beautiful friend jenatkinhair you’re more than just hair I hope one day you’ll realize that.” Not appreciating the last ditch effort, Atkin replied, “Posting at the end of the day is the least you could do” to which Teigen swiftly responded with a rock-solid excuse. She wrote, “Yeah 1 my dog died and 2 I texted you a long time ago not everything I do is for likes.”
When Legend tried to salvage Teigen’s wish by adding more good qualities about Atkin, his wife immediately started questioning his efforts. She replied to his comment by tagging Atkin’s husband and writing, “wow @mrmikerosenthal u hear this s**t?”
Teigen also threw some (not) subtle shade at Atkin when thanking her for her glam at the pre-Grammy party. She mentioned Atkin in the list of “dear friends who I pay but they’re still very good friends.”
When Atkin tried to make a show of her friendship by saying, “I would do it for free” Teigen fired back with a simple, “but u didn’t“.
May these two continue to undermine each other forever!
