British singer Rachel Keen (AKA Raye) has been making waves in the music scene with her catchy soft pop vocals and R&B-laced tracks. And while we’ve been listening to her latest single, Decline, on repeat, we’ve been also stalking her Instagram to get a glimpse of her most stand-out feature: her romantic rose gold curls.
After spending most of her time straightening her curls when she was younger, the 20-year-old has learnt to love and embrace her curly mane (as she rightfully should!). Needless to say, she’s a hair icon in the making and we’re obsessed with her. Keep scrolling and you’ll be, too!

Editor’s tip: Want to get on the rose gold bandwagon? Then you’ll need to switch up your usual wash and care system for one specifically formulated for dyed hair.
2. Because she’s the new ponytail princess
While Ariana Grande is the queen of ponytails, Raye’s feed shows us all that she’s the newly crowned princess of the pony! Yep, in every single shot the beauty is championing this practical style and showing us it’s far from basic.
3. Because she’s all about on-trend hair accessories
If there’s one thing that sums up Raye and her music, it’s her love for all things ’90s, which she also professes with her hair. How? By rocking it with the It-girl accessory of the moment: a scrunchie. Doesn’t it just bring back loads of nostalgic memories? Credit: @raye
4. But most importantly, because she loves her natural curls
You only need to turn on the news or flick through social media to see that all the radical hair policies that surround natural curly hair. However, Raye doesn’t let that get her down and chooses to show us all how gorgeous curly hair can be. Thanks for the #naturalhairinspo, R! Credit: @raye
Editor’s tip: It’s no secret that natural hair textures are prone to dryness and frizz, but using a hydrating hair mask can help out. Our fave for curls? The TIGI Catwalk Oatmeal & Honey Mask, of course!
This intensive nourishing treatment is great for curly hair, as it helps to repair and strengthen it, leaving it soft, shiny and super-hydrated.
