The Brachel: A Haircut Mixing Bardot and Rachel Green Styles

In the field of hairstyling, we like to revisit the classics; however, iconic cuts are always on top of the list. Proof is this fusion of Brigitte Bardot's and Jennifer Aniston's haircuts in the Friends series.

Is there any woman who, in the 1990s, did not ask her hairdresser for the "Rachel cut" in reference to the character played by Jennifer Aniston in “Friends”? What about the blondness and volume of Brigitte Bardot in the 1960s? From now on, no need to choose between the two icons. According to the website of the American version of Glamour magazine, when it comes to hairstyles, it's time to merge the two inspirations. The result of the combo? The Brachel cut, which finds its best ambassador in the person of American influencer Shay Sullivann.

The mixture of sixties and nineties heritage

On her TikTok account, the influencer shared a video of her haircut done live in a hair salon. The result is a mixture of sixties and nineties heritages, the curtain fringe of Bardot comes to frame the face, while the gradient game turns out to be very emblematic of the Rachel Green square.

The secret to sixties volume? Just like back then: good old-fashioned Velcro or heat rollers. And a good blow-dry to maximize the airy effect.

The good news is that the Brachel can work just as well for long hair as for a long bob.

No doubt that a work on the coloring with a sweep effect or subtle highlights will perfect this result at the crossroads of times and trends. And that Selena Gomez had already adopted two years ago.
