Let’s talk about major waves across pop culture hair changes! From our favorite Sex and the City, star Ms. Carrie Bradshaw, to our What’s My Name pop star Rihanna. Let’s take a stroll down memory lane with the ladies that influenced our own hair glow ups throughout the years.
The Infamous Carrie Bradshaw Mane
Our favorite shoe obsessed New Yorker gave us inspiration for years, not only from her shoes, style or dream job, but her luscious mane! The Sex And The City character gave us the most natural hair inspired look with her bouncy perm curls! The character didn’t exactly come with these vivacious curls. The true actress, Sara Jessica Parker always rocked straight sleek hair or smooth soft curls. It was not until Carrie Bradshaw was born that brought her into the voluminous iconic hairstyle we idolize today. It was the curls that gave us some serious curl envy! These curls were voluminous, dramatic and radiant. It’s what every girl wishes to have. We recommend our Titan 3, this curling iron set is made with 100 percent titanium barrels to hold curls from even the thickest most coarse hair! Try out the 19mm barrel for this particular style to get those tight spirals just like Carrie Bradshaw.
Kim Kardashian Goes Platinum
Kim Kardashian brought edgy and fierce, when she changed up her signature dark brown hair for a platinum blonde look. She never ceases to amaze us! Let’s chat about how she achieved this look. This hair color isn’t the easiest to achieve. It is one of the biggest transformations your hair can go through. You must have patience as it requires time and commitment. Thinking about following in Ms.West footsteps? Consider nourishing and restorative hair products like the NuMe White Truffle Serum. Bleaching your hair can cause major damage, consider products that will keep your hair from breakage and dryness. You want your hair to be in good condition before diving in.
Friends Gives Us “The Rachel” Haircut
Jennifer Aniston might have the most iconic hairstyle in television history when she debuted “the Rachel” haircut on the television show “Friends”. The blow-out, blonde highlighted choppy hairstyle was the biggest hair trend in the mid 1990s. Pop culture refers to this iconic hairstyle as a reference when talking about the 90s. The Friends actress herself wasn’t the biggest fan of this haircut, but nonetheless it became significant with her iconic character on the show. The 90’s have been making a huge comeback lately, what better hairstyle to symbolize the 90s then the Rachel look? The caramel/blonde highlights, choppy cut or blow dry hairstyle is giving everyone major hair inspiration. Emulate Rachel’s blow out style with our Signature Hair Dryer to keep gravity-defying bounce.
Ariana Grande- Sky High Ponytail
Ariana Grande became a hair trendsetter when she stepped out in her signature sky-high ponytail. She stepped up the ponytail hair game! Making this simple ponytail her signature look. Do you want to recreate this look? You will need these four essentials: hairspray, a straightener, bobby pins and a hair tie. A straightener that helps maintain frizz is essential for this look, like the NuMe Megastar Hair Straightener to give you sleek straight hair before sweeping your hair into a ponytail. Don’t forget to leave a small section of hair outside the ponytail, this will be used to wrap around your hair tie! Add a few spritz of hairspray to lock down any stray hairs. You’re ready to go, giving out full “Ariana Vibes”.
Rihanna’s Red Bob
Red hair dye was flying off shelves in 2011, when the pop icon Rihanna stepped out in a fiery red hairstyle. Rihanna's red hair color became synonymous with her Loud era of music! Suddenly, every girl whether your hair was short or long were rushing to the salon chair for a fiery red look. The singer rocked her red locks in long weaves, short bobs, and even a pixie cut. This hair transformation is one of the more notable in recent years, as women asked for “rihanna red” locks when mentioning their hair inspiration.
