Is it just me, or is "old money" style so popular right now? Everyone is opting for classic, high-quality pieces that make their outfits look ultra-expensive. However, recently I've been seeing this particular aesthetic make its way into the beauty industry, with lots of timeless, chic hairstyles gracing my Instagram and TikTok feeds. Of course, the bob hairstyle is taking centre stage, but forget your usual iterations of the short haircut because I'm calling it: the "old money bob" is the chicest style to opt for this winter. I know what you're thinking—surely, not another bob trend to get on board with. But don't panic, as this is such an easy style to re-create and I just know that it'll be in fashion for years to come.
What I love about this bob hairstyle (and what makes it stand out from the rest) is the fact that you can tailor it to suit you, no matter your hair type. The main difference is that this style has a super-elegant, polished finish, and often sits in line with or just below the jaw—think Meredith Blake in The Parent Trap. When it comes to styling, it's all about voluminous roots, bouncy curls and shiny ends that turn inwards, giving off all of the glossy vibes. A lot of people are also opting for face-framing layers to give it that '90s feel. In fact, after doing some research, it seems that this hairstyle was very popular in the '90s, with models such as Linda Evangelista famously sporting it. And if you really want to lean into that old-money aesthetic, don't forget to add a pair of retro sunglasses to finish off the look.
