Forget Headbands, These Are the Modern Hair Trends Coming Out of the New Gossip Girl
Thinking back, 2007 may not seem like that significant of a year. The early aughts were ending, the awkward 10s were approaching, and most millennials were in middle school, which is frankly not necessarily the time in our lives we want to remember. But upon closer inspection you'd see just how impactful it was to pop culture. Former Apple CEO Steve Jobs unveiled the first iPhone, Britney Spears's conservatorship was on the horizon, and — if you can believe it — Gossip Girl hit our television screens for the first time.
It didn't take long for the teen drama to gain traction. Soon enough, everyone you knew was wearing headbands to school, accessorizing their private school uniforms with sequined scarves, and using phrases like "lonely boy" and "seal the deal" in everyday conversations. Fourteen years later, the now-iconic show got its long-awaited reboot with a brand new cast and new HBO Max residence. So, does this mean we should expect these new Upper East Siders to catapult into the zeitgeist the same way the original characters did? Definitely — and for very similar reasons.
Euphoria may be the place you go for makeup inspiration, but we're betting the Gossip Girl revival will be your source for all things hair. Ahead, we spoke with the two women who helped build the iconic beauty looks from the original and new series, as well as how the show's lightning-in-a-bottle-success is likely to spawn a few more hair trends in the process.
