The New ‘Rich-Girl Hair’ Is Officially Everywhere

During New York Fashion Week, we started to notice that at many shows, hair on the runway looked rich and gleaming and had a slight curl. It was the kind of hair you’d see on fancy Italian women in the 1980s. We quickly named it “rich-girl hair” — and, sure enough, it popped up all over Milan and Paris. On the runways at Versace, Gucci, and Chloé, models wore their shiny hair with a soft bend. Guido Palau, Redken’s creative consultant, called the gleaming look at Versace “very glamorous, but in a nonchalant” way. This look is different from beachy hair — hairstylist Paul Hanlon, who created the polished look at Gucci, was quick to clarify that the hair was smooth and “clean,” not crunchy with texture.
