Old Money Hair

Old Money Hair

In an everchanging landscape of fashion, beauty and lifestyle trends, Old Money style is making a profound statement. The trend is deeply rooted in the classic, polished looks of decades gone by, with its enduring charm a testament to timeless elegance. Thanks to TikTok making phrases like “quiet luxury” go viral, and the recent glamour of the Saltburn movie (cue the Jacob Elordi swoon), the Old Money appearance has had a modern resurgence.

Here at Foxy Locks, we’re big fans of the trend, and how it blends vintage charm with contemporary flair. In this post, we delve into the iconic Old Money style, and how it redefines the look of the elite to be fresher and more accessible.


The term ‘Old Money’ refers to having generational wealth, passed down through families for centuries. Old Money hair is understated, sophisticated and dignified. Styles are neat and intentional, natural in colour and texture, and sleek in appearance. Think of the polished waves of the 1920s, the loose chignons of the 1950s, and the voluminous blowouts of the 1980s – each era reflecting a blend of grace and luxury.

Today the heritage trend is experiencing a revival in a big way. Opulence has been reimagined to suit the 21st century woman. Fashion-forward influencers play a huge part in amplifying it to the forefront of our attention. So… how do we achieve the Old Money hair look?


Foxy Locks Remy extensions are the perfect tool to help you pull off the Old Money hair look. With invisible wefts that are discreet and undetectable at the root, your natural locks blend seamlessly with Foxy Locks lengths for a style that is chic yet subtle. Simply apply your Remy clip-in extensions as normal prior to your styling process for longer, thicker locks.

Voluminous Waves

1.Start by washing your hair with a salon quality shampoo and conditioner. Towel dry by gently squeezing and patting the moisture out of your hair rather than rubbing to avoid damage and frizz. Evenly distribute our Luxury Gold Oil throughout your hair as a heat protectant product.

2.Using a large barrel curling iron, take medium-sized sections of hair and curl away from your face. Hold each curl for about 10-15 seconds before releasing.

3.Once you’ve completed a full head of curls, let your hair cool to set in place. Then, gently run your fingers through to loosen the waves.

4.Add volume by lightly teasing the hair at the crown of your head. Flip your head upside down and spray with a flexible hold hairspray to maintain the volume and lift without stiffness

Elegant Ponytail

1.Brush your hair to detangle and remove knots. Apply a smoothing serum to tame flyaways.

2.Gather your hair into a mid-height ponytail at the back of your head. Secure in place with a hair elastic.

3.For a thicker, fuller ponytail, apply Foxy Locks’ Remy Clip In Ponytail Extension. Slide the clip under the base of your natural ponytail, then secure in place by wrapping around and fastening the Velcro closure.

4.Conceal the hair tie by taking a small section of hair out of the ponytail and wrapping it round the elastic or extension. Use a bobby pin to disguise the leave out underneath your ponytail.

5.Spritz with Shine Spray for a rich fragrance and gentle sheen.

Low Chignon

1.Prep the hair by detangling and applying a texturizing spray or wax for grip.

2.Pull your hair into a loose, low ponytail at the nape of your neck and secure with a hair tie.

3.Twist the ponytail around the base to form a bun. Secure in place with hair grips.

4.Gently pull out a few face framing sections to soften the look and give a more romantic, relaxed appearance.

5.Accessorize with ribbons or bows for a feminine touch.
