How to Get a "Rich Girl" Blowdry Like a J.Crew Model

J. Crew

If you love shopping J. Crew as much as we do, you’ll have noticed something about the brand’s models (apart from their covetable clothes). No matter the length or texture of their hair, it always looks—to paraphrase Alex Perry—expensive.

While we have love for the occasional ponytail or bun featured on the site, it’s J. Crew’s particular brand of effortless blowdry we love most. Not sure what I'm talking about? It's “bendy” but not curly, textured but touchable, and looks as if it was inspired by Olivia Palermo. In hairstylist Anthony Nader’s words: “It’s the blowdry you have when you’re not having a blowdry.”

It’s definitely an elevated version of your stock-standard blowdry, but the truth is, unless you’re lucky enough to roll out of bed with this kind of hair (or well-to-do enough to afford bi-weekly salon styling sessions), “effortless” is actually a misnomer. To that end, we approached Nader for the intel on recreating it at home (he’s coiffed both J. Crew models and Palermo herself, making him an obvious choice). Keep reading for the how to on styling your hair like a J. Crew model in three simple steps!
