Rich girl hair is a look that was spotted all over the runways in Fall 2015 and quickly became a trend. Here's how to get it yourself and give other girls serious hair envy.
What is it?
Rich girl hair is loose wavy hair, often styled with a middle part. Your locks are meant to have a slight bend to them, but nothing more. It's important to note that while this style has waves in it, it's different from 'beach hair,' as no texturizing products or gels are used - hair must be perfectly clean, soft to the touch and very shiny. Although it can take quite a lot of work to achieve the look, the goal is for people to think that it's effortless and natural. Rich girl hair can work on any hair length, although it's ideal to have long hair for the look.
Healthy hair is the trick
Despite its name, you don't have to be 'rich' to achieve rich girl hair. You do however, need to have very healthy hair, and that requires a small investment in good quality products, especially hair masks.
It's also recommended to book an appointment at the salon with your favorite hairdresser so that they can help get rid of any split ends, touch up or update your color, and give you a deep conditioning treatment if necessary.
Once your hair is perfectly conditioned all you need to do to complete the look is to curl small sections of your hair. Make sure you only curl each one for 1-2 seconds and then seal the style in place with smoothing oil. You'll have Upper East Side worthy hair in no time.
