This summer we all want to be back in Friends star Jennifer Aniston's 'Rachel' haircut - but in this new, cooler version.
The love for the aesthetic and fashion of the 90s is going nowhere at first. We want to wrap ourselves in light-colored denim pieces, slip dresses, and platform sandals and also bring back one or the other hair and beauty trend. We're looking for inspiration for this from the fashion icons of the past few years - one of them: is Jennifer Aniston aka Rachel Green from the cult series Friends. She is not only remembered for her cheeky sayings or her thin eyebrows but especially for her haircut: the Rachel cut. And this is celebrating a big comeback in summer 2022!
From the moment he debuted on the show in 1995, Rachel's haircut was an instant hit, being restyled by women from all over the world. The voluminous, shoulder-length cut, which is characterized by its many layers and bounce, became one of the most sought-after cuts of its time. And this year, too, the Rachel cut seems to be returning in a new, modern version, at least according to beauty retailer Just My Look, demand has skyrocketed by 179 percent.
A more mature, slightly longer, and even cooler take on the haircut, the Rachel 2.0 is the perfect summer hairstyle for anyone who wants to embrace the 90s trend and bring back some nostalgia. The Rachel 2.0 also features choppy layers that frame the face perfectly. Because it consists of many layers, it gives even the thinnest hair more body and volume.
The haircut should end just short of your collarbone for the ultimate 90s look. It is also important that your hair is light and fluffy. Volume shampoos and sprays help here. After washing, you should apply a conditioning oil or serum to your hair to avoid any frizz. Then, blow-dry the hair over a rounded brush, slightly twisting the ends outwards. Fix everything with hairspray and tousle vigorously for the undone look.
