All we want for Christmas: Zoella doing the “Rachel.”
The 1990s definitely got a warm welcome this past year, as we saw both industry insiders and fashion fans alike referencing this beloved decade with abandon. Known for its musical influences (long bob haircuts for both guys and gals!), sleek minimalism and stark, neutral palette, the 1990s was also the era that one of the most familiar hairstyles, the “Rachel,” came to the fore.
As part of our new—and super-fun!—series, 100 Years of Holiday Hair, we asked one of our favorite YouTube vlogger darlings, the always-on-point Zoella, for her modern take on this iconic layered hairstyle. Click on the video and scroll down below for a step-by-step take on giving a sexy 1990s twist on your long bob haircuts. You’re gonna love this one, gang!
