Cindy Crawford reveals her ultimate hair inspiration

And it’s not who you would expect

Beauty Crew Contributor / May 25 2017

As one of the original supermodels, Cindy Crawford has been a beauty icon for well over a decade. Known for her voluminous hair and perfectly shaped eyebrows, as well as her mile-long legs, the model no doubt picked up a wealth of beauty knowledge during her time in the spotlight. However Cindy recently revealed that the one thing she wasn’t expecting to age, which has taken her by surprise, is her hair!

The model revealed to PeopleStyle: “No one warns you that your hair changes so much. I knew I was going to have to start colouring it, but didn’t realise the texture was going to change. That was one of the biggest surprises about ageing”. 

She continued to explain that when she goes to the colourist, she has a very specific colour in mind and her inspiration for that colour (reminiscent of her 15-year-old self) is her daughter, Kaia Gerber. “I try to colour my hair so that it looks natural,” Cindy says. “I look at my daughter’s hair and I am like, you have my old hair and that is what I want, so I am taking you to the colourist!”


Cindy also revealed her top tips for protecting her hair is to use less heat on it when styling. “I am fortunate because I still have a ton of hair but am less likely to use a lot of heat on it. I put it in a topknot so if I do have a quick blow-dry, it helps it last another day,” she says. 

It turns out we have more in common with Cindy Crawford than we thought! We know how important taking care of our hair is as we age, and we also have a serious girl crush on her daughter Kaia Gerber. See Kaia and Cindy’s standout beauty looks from New York Fashion Week.
