The Best Hair on The Girlfriend Experience
Everyone talks about the sex and drama on Starz’s show The Girlfriend Experience, released all at once earlier this spring, but an overlooked reason to binge-watch the series is Christine Read’s long hair. You never know how the law student turned call girl, played by Riley Keough, will wear it to meet a new client.
The Cut’s Beauty Editor-at-Large, Linda Wells, already dove into the counterintuitive allure of the character’s relatively conservative look: There’s not one pair of translucent platforms or a single bandage dress in the whole show. Instead, it continually subverts our expectations of what a sex worker looks like. Just like the rest of us, Christine throws her hair up in a messy bun at her internship (except she has the budget to afford Céline).
