The Modern Rachel is the trendiest vintage haircut around. Its degraded structure and all in volume have already succumbed to some celebrities like Selena Gomez or Hailey Baldwin. Now, it's social media that the '90s haircut is being followed.
On May 27 this year, Friends fans revisit the series with nostalgia in the special episode: The Reunion. The opportunity to learn more about the behind the scenes of the shoot, to decipher the relationships between the actors but also to review their looks. During the ten seasons of the series, Jennifer Aniston is distinguished by a singular hairstyle. She appears with an airy haircut, cut in layered and made up of several levels. She was so popular that she ended up being named The Rachel in honor of her character. It is one of the most copied and requested cuts of all time. The style is more popular than ever in 2021. Following the broadcast of the episode, searches for Rachel Green's iconic hairstyle have seen an increase of + 179%, says Glamor, according to data from Just My Look. An observation that goes hand in hand with the current trend. The Y2K is a movement that revives the forgotten beauty trends of the 90s-2000s. No wonder the vintage and iconic haircut is regaining its nobility. Style hashtags and videos are on the rise and are hugely popular. Same story with the stars. Chrissy Teigen, Hailey Bieber, Meghan Markle, or Selena Gomez... All have displayed Rachel Green's haircut lately.
While retaining the basics of the '90s style, The Rachel is modernized to keep up with the times. Cut in a gradient just above the shoulders, the hair combines three styles. It is a subtle blend of the shag cut, a long bob all embellished with a curtain fringe.
To style it, the straightener is abandoned in favor of the hairdryer and the traditional round brush for a blow-dry while volume. Layered strands frame the face and take the shape of a heart. A volumizing shampoo can be a perfect ally to complete the style.
