Chrissy Teigen's new hair is a nod to Rachel Green and we love it

Could we BE any more of a fan of her new look?

There's no denying that we love ourselves a bit of nostalgia, and our obsession with 90s beauty trends isn't going anywhere any time soon.

Case in point: our fave Chrissy Teigen has just debuted a new style that's a modern take on "The Rachel" haircut, and we're lowkey obsessed. 

The original hairstyle, made famous by Jennifer Aniston as "Friends" character Rachel Green, was created by stylist Chris MacMillan back in 1995, and has gone down as one of the most iconic looks in hair history ever since.

I'm sure we all remember it, but just in case, here's a little reminder of what the original looked like...

Funnily enough, Aniston herself wasn't actually a fan of the haircut; she once described it as "not my best look" and "the ugliest haircut I've ever seen" in an interview with Allure. (We think you're on your own with that one, Jen, as the rest of us thought you looked great!)

Fast forward 25 years and the style clearly still wields a big influence. Chrissy Teigen's new look is a modern take on the original shaggy cut, created by her hairstylist Tracey Cunningham. The new 'do is layered, long bob perfection, complete with blonde highlights and layered side bangs.

"New hair who this, it's me obviously I don't get it," Teigen captioned the post with her signature wit.

And it seems that her fans agree with us on the Rachel Green front. "Giving me early 90s Rachel cut," one follower wrote, while another posted, "Did you get The Rachel?!"

"The Rachel is timeless. You look fab," a third added. We couldn't agree more.

It goes without saying that we're happy to take any beauty pointers Chrissy throws our way. Next up, check out the facial oil she swears by for her glowing skin.
