If you were to ask people who they look to for hair inspiration, we bet many of them would note Jennifer Aniston as an icon. Especially her Friends character, Rachel.

Back when Friends was first airing on our screens in the mid ‘90s, “The Rachel” was a phrase coined because of Jennifer’s perfectly sleek, styled and flicked-out lengths. That signature style quickly prompted women across the world to print out snaps and eagerly rush to their hairdressers to demand the same look.

These days, fashion and beauty trends from the ‘90s are having a bit of a moment again, which has prompted celebs to undergo retro makeovers. And our favourite yet is Georgia Steel’s take on the classic Rachel hair.

Taking to Instagram to showcase her masses of glossy hair, the Love Island star simply captioned the snap, “Juicy”.

And her celeb pals were quick to compliment her look.

“Wow that hair,” said Geordie Shore’s Sophie Kasaei.

“Hair!” Amber Turner from TOWIE commented, adding a heart-eye emoji for effect.

Even though it’s clear that Georgia is blessed with gorgeous hair, as we saw on Love Island, it’s still easy to create this Rachel look at home. We had a chat with the very man who created this look, celebrity hairstylist James Johnson, to find out the steps…

James says:

I’m all about retro glam looks at the moment – from LA to Essex, Kim Kardashian has been inspiring us with natural hair kicks and flicks, while Amy Childs has been bringing back the supermodel blow-out.

To add a touch of “Rachel from Friends” to Georgia, we opted for a heavily layered hair look.

To do this, I used scissors and created feathered shaping around her front sections. This helps to frame her face and add movement to the long hair.

Sometimes long hair can feel heavy and “boring”, so this is a great technique to ask your hairdresser for, as it gives you a change without the commitment of a fringe or losing any length.

To style, use a round brush and curl inwards when drying – to maximise the flick. A hot brush like the Revamp Progloss Hot Air Styler, £49.99 here, can also help you get this salon blow-out look at home.

For Rachel-worthy gloss, don’t forget to add a style enhancer like ColorWow’s Dreamcoat Supernatural Spray, £25 here. A ‘90s look is all about movement and texture, so don’t be scared to get stuck in and create the flicks and sexy texture (sexture!).

Polished or undone, there are no rules with it.
