A new hairstyle is going viral on social media, and it definitely puts the class in classy. Thanks to TikTok and Pinterest, the old money aesthetic has been trending yet again, from clothes that make you look like you shower in gold, to this new hairstyle that frames your face in the most elegant way. The Old Money Bob is certainly not the first bob style to go viral on the apps, but it offers a more simple yet beautiful look to the trend. The hairstyle has been compared to that of Meredith Blake in The Parent Trap. Yes, the evil stepmother we all loathed that we all now want to be.
The Old Money Bob is a styled blowout look where your hair falls either exactly at your jawline or slightly under — whatever works best for your face shape. The hair should have a bouncy, shiny finish, with slight curls, and can be worn with a side or middle part. It’s similar to the look Zendaya rocked in February 2023 when she attended the NAACP Image Awards ceremony.
That full, voluminous finish and the short length are what give this style its defining look. It allows the hair to look healthy and silky, and gives you that expensive touch that just screams old money.
Different TikTok users have been experimenting with this Old Money Bob look, showing how well it fits different face shapes and hair colors. Just be sure to consult with your stylist on what version of this look is best suited for you.
This look is perfect for Valentine’s Day, too, if you want your S.O. to be as obsessed with your new look as you are. I’m already making a call to my salon — I’m all about this aesthetic for 2024.
