1. Don’t Wash Your Hair Every Day

Washing every day strips hair of nutrients and its natural oils, leaving it looking dull.

Daily shampooing can also cause hair breakage, brittle strands, and dullness, and can dry out the scalp.

If you’re worried about your hair getting greasy too quickly otherwise: Don’t be afraid! Hair gets greasy because the scalp isn’t moisturized enough, so the sebaceous glands overproduce their own oil.

So if you take care of enough moisture and avoid a dry scalp, your hair will be far less greasy. And also look much more well-groomed, shiny and soft.

2. Use Silicone- & Sulfate-Free Shampoos

Sulfate is the substance responsible for the lather in shampoos. However, it attacks the scalp and hair very aggressively and therefore cleans anything but gently.

However, if you want your hair to look expensive, it’s essential that it isn’t damaged by aggressive ingredients or that your scalp is dried out.

Silicones, on the other hand, do seal the hair, giving it a nice shine, but they don’t wash out completely, making the hair look flat in the long run, as they encourage early oil production. This is also something we don’t want to have with expensive-looking hair.

In addition, it’s important to understand that the shampoo is usually only a few seconds or minutes on the hair and therefore most of the “good” ingredients which many manufacturers advertisecan’t be absorbed. Therefore, the simplest, gentle shampoos such as baby shampoo, for example, are suitable here.

ADDITIONAL TIP: Please never apply shampoo to the ends of the hair, as it can dry them out and cause hair breakage. Shampoo should be applied to the scalp for a short time to remove impurities and styling residues. When washing out it comes anyway in the tips and cleans them too, there you need and shouldn’t provide them with shampoo before.

3. Conditioner also in the Roots

Now you know that moisture on the scalp isn’t your enemy but your friend. And a very important one.

So periodically, you should also put your conditioner in the roots of your hair to give it the moisture it needs.

Especially in summer, when you might still have a sunburn on your scalp or your skin is drier from the sun, it’s essential to ensure it’s moisturized.

And here, you don’t have to worry about them looking greasy afterward. Just make sure you wash your hair out well and there should be no conditioner residue left behind.

4. Regular Hair Masks

To provide your hair with nutrients, vitamins, and minerals, you should do a hair mask 1-2 times a week. This can be, for example, rosemary, argan, or castor oil that you apply to the scalp to moisturize it and in the lengths and tips, a good hair mask.

Or you can also apply the hair mask to the scalp; it’s up to you. The important thing is that you don’t leave it out – as I said, it needs moisture to prevent dandruff and skin dehydration.

Also, I can only recommend that you leave the mask on overnight or for several hours so that the ingredients can really be absorbed by your hair.

ADDITIONAL TIP: You can make a sleek bun or braid with it wonderfully and go with it e.g. to the Gym – nobody will notice that because it holds bombproof like a good gel.

5. Scalp Massages

You should massage your scalp regularly if you suffer from hair loss or brittle hair.

This will stimulate hair growth and make your hair shinier. In addition, it does just insanely good and it’s a great balance to the stressful everyday life.

6. Cover Gray Hair between Hairdresser Appointments

If you want to know how your hair looks expensive, you should cover your gray hair between hair appointments.

Especially the roots will look unkempt otherwise.

7. Have Your Hair Cut Regularly

regular haircut (at least once every 3 months) is the name of the game if you want your hair to look expensive.

Trimming your hair eliminates split, damaged, or broken ends and accelerates hair growth instead of hindering it.

What is the Old Money Aesthetic?

The “Old Money Aesthetic“ refers to the nobility, the aristocracy, or the rich upper class in general. These are people who haven’t earned their wealth themselves but have inherited it.

A motif of this aesthetic that can hardly be overlooked is the sports of golf and tennis, which in most countries tend to be associated with the upper class. Polo or other equestrian sports are also seen time and again.

By stamping these motifs, you can see that it’s a timeless, very classically chic style that exudes pure elegance and therefore enjoys excellent admiration in society.

And contrary to what you may think, the enthusiasm for this aesthetic can be observed in all generations and even in the youngest fashion fans.

Because in truth, the hashtag #oldmoneyaesthetic has more than 90 million views on TikTok worldwide, while #oldmoney already counts 322 million.

So the trend is clear: fashion-wise, we’re finally moving back towards timeless fashion. Fashion houses like Chanel and co. will surely be happy about that!

Where Did the Old Money Aesthetic Come From?

As I mentioned, “old money“ has been passed down and inherited over several generations.

Moreover, families with old money don’t come from middle-class or working-class families but from businesses or fortunes from several generations ago.

On the other hand, the so-called “new money” was earned recently. The new rich are first-generation millionaires and billionaires.

Accordingly, the “Old Money Aesthetic” originally came from families with aristocratic titles (titles of nobility) in Europe or also from the WASP culture (White Anglo-Saxon Protestant) in the United States, who can afford, for example, the sports of polo, golf or tennis.

In series like “Bridgerton” or “The Crown,” we see again and again such families, who with their elegant, chic style, contribute to this style (again) gaining popularity.

What Are the Characteristics of the Old Money Style?

  • Bright colors like white, light blue, or rose
  • High-quality fabrics like linen, cotton, silk, wool
  • The stereotypical tying of the sweater around the shoulders
  • Tennis clothes like tennis skirts or polo shirts
  • No flashy designer logos
  • Hats, silk scarves, and gloves are often-used elegant accessories

How Do I Look Like Old Money?

Learn these essential elements of the old money style and you’ll soon look just like them.

And the good thing is that you don’t need the same fortune to do it because you can store affordable alternatives with these basics.

The only thing that matters is that you learn the basics of their style and the secret tricks of their aesthetics.

1. Light Colors

Especially in summer, a simple and super helpful tip is to go for lighter colors like white, light blue, pink, yellow, or other light pastel shades.

This is because the rich know that light colors protect them from excessive sunlight and make them look much neater, friendlier, and, most importantly, chicer.

Dark clothing quickly looks dull and can leave a rude, distant impression, which should be avoided at all costs, especially for rich people.

After all, just because these families are already wealthy doesn’t mean they don’t want to expand their wealth. And for that, good contacts and extended business relationships are essential – so their overly bright clothing sets a foundation stone for friendly, open conversations here.

So if you’re also interested in networking with successful, interesting personalities, you should heed this simple but effective tip.

2. High-Quality Fabrics

Harmful materials can ruin your outfit within seconds. Because even if you think that most people don’t see the fabric composition of your look: They do, unfortunately.

Maybe not necessarily the direct fabric mix, but still, you see – and worst case, you smell – the lousy production and manufacturing of these items.

Pieces from predominantly synthetic fabrics should be taboo from now on! They only make you sweat excessively anyway, always look cheap, and look anything but elegant.

Therefore, I recommend, especially if you’re on a budget, that you create capsule wardrobes with 20-30 elegant, timeless pieces for each season, which you can combine in the most diverse chic ways. This will not only save you a lot of time and stress but also a lot of money.

So invest instead in a few high-quality materials, for example, linen, cotton, wool, silk, or cashmere, instead of unnecessarily many pieces in poor quality at the worst of almost fashion stores to own.

3. Tie a Sweater Over Your Shoulders

Who doesn’t know this preppy, adorable look?

I put together a few outfits in this style myself yesterday. Even though I loved tying sweaters over my shoulders before, I realized how much it makes the outfit more elegant.

And I highly recommend this to you, too: tying a sweater over your shoulders has such a great, casually elegant vibe that puts you right into that “right off the tennis court” flair.

It’s basically a simple trick, but it works wonders and is practical too. When it gets a little chilly in the evening, you’ll have something you can throw on immediately, and you won’t have to lug a jacket around.

4. No Flashy Designer Brands

Something that wealthy, “old money” people probably hate the most are flashy logos that scream, “I want to look rich. “

Since these people 1. don’t need it and 2. don’t find it elegant, you won’t see anyone with old money walking around like this.

And that’s a good thing – it gives us the advantage of not wearing designer pieces to recreate this aesthetic.

With high-quality materials and a good fit, everything is already done – it shouldn’t even be recognizable from the outside, from which brand an item is. And if you can see a logo, it should be a small, minimalist logo such as on Ralph Lauren or Lacoste Polos*.

How Do I Get An Old Money Aesthetic?

Since there is more to the “old money aesthetic” than just dressing accordingly, I recommend you become more and more the best version of yourself on your journey to be able to live this lifestyle in the long run.

This means, for example, visiting places where old money people hang out to get inspired by them or maybe even connect with them. These can be fancy restaurants, golf courses, or even tennis courts. You might even attend a polo match near you. The main thing is that you’re surrounded by people who inspire you in this regard.

In addition, you won’t get distracted so quickly, and you’ll be able to integrate more and more of the other themes that old money people deal with as well, to integrate these aesthetics not only into your clothing style but also into your lifestyle.
