If scrolling through Instagram feeds to find endless hair and makeup inspiration is something you do regularly, you probably are already familiar with 16-year-old singer-slash-model Mallory Merk. And if that name doesn’t sound familiar just yet, her smattering of adorable freckles, otherworldly glowing complexion, and pumpkin-spiced shag are surely on your radar. Mal’s striking features and equally captivating voice have quickly turned her into muse-status for the biggest music and makeup moguls alike - Rihanna, Kanye West, Lil Yachty, and Pat McGrath have all taken interest and featured her in their projects. Although Mal appears to be flawlessly juggling it all, she keeps it real every step of the way. Check out her EP with up-and-coming producers Herrick & Hooley: MM & HH. It's pretty dope.
