Mob Wife Trend — Impact on Hair Styles

Written By Team Que 06 Mar 2024
Mob Wife hair trend and styles

The first trend of 2024 has arrived, and word on the street is that the clean girl is out and the mob wife era is in. We all became consumed with the idea of neutral tones, minimal makeup, slicked hair and quiet luxury in 2023. 

Get ready to do a complete 180; think bold, stealth wealth, voluptuous hair, animal print, faux fur coats and an iconic smokey eye. Mob wife aesthetic is the embodiment of more is more, and it's the perfect excuse to go a little more rogue. 

The trend started on TikTok late last year and gained significant traction among TikTok users in the first week of 2024. Since then, it has taken over almost everyone’s social media. We have even seen Jennifer Lopez, Dua Lipa and Kendall Jenner, just to name a few, successfully channelling the aesthetic.

Channelling Confidence and Power

We can look to the likes of Carmela Soprano and Adriana La Cerva from The Sopranos, Karen Hill in Goodfellas and Elvira Hancock in Scarface, with the style from the 80s and 90s also influencing people online. One thing they all have in common? Big hair. Bouncy, voluminous blowouts played a quintessential role in distinguishing an everyday woman from a mob wife.

It is clear that the whole aesthetic goes beyond simply looks, but rather it is a way of portraying a certain attitude and aura. In this instance, it’s about looking “booked and busy” and, most importantly, the unbothered attitude of a woman with money, ultimately being the walking example of wealth, confidence and authority.

How To Achieve The Iconic Mob Wife Blow Out

At Que Colour, we have gained global attention for our famous blowouts and layered butterfly haircuts. This trend has been calling our name, and we’re about to give you the hottest tips on how to achieve a larger-than-life, mob wife blowout that will not only look incredible, but maintain its volume and curl.  

Mob Wife Blow Out


A Classic Mousse: 

One of our best-selling products and for a good reason, My Nanna’s Mousse by Larry King is designed to help the hair to appear fuller, with a plumping and thickening effect. The hair is left with a soft, bouncy volume and shine. The product helps increase elasticity and provides a product-free feel. If you get one thing, make it this.

A Good Round Blow Dry Brush:

Your brush plays a vital role in the outcome of your blowout. Boar Bristle brushes provide more stretch and tension on the hair, leaving you with ultimate shine. The bristles are more gentle on the scalp and help redistribute natural oils from your scalp and add more shine.

A Nourishing Hair Oil:

The newly launched Spoilt For Choice Oil from Larry King is a true overachiever. We have been obsessed with the shine achieved from adding this to the hair before a blow dry. Formulated with rosemary oil, jojoba oil, argan oil and squalene, all rich in vitamins and minerals to help nourish and strengthen the hair as well as helping to soothe and restore the scalp.

Mob Wife Aesthetic Hair Colour 

It’s not a mob wife without rich, expensive brunette hair. So if you start noticing your friends switching to the dark side, there's a high chance they have been influenced by this trend. 

We love this for all the right reasons, it aligns with our message of healthy, hydrated hair versus over-lightening and processing. Not only does going darker require less maintenance, but we almost always see an improvement over time in our client's hair.

Our double glazed offering delivers incredible results and is an affordable way to get a celebrity-worthy shine, adding to that rich vibe exuded by mob wives. 

Put simply, a double glaze is two glossing services provided back to back. A clear gloss over natural hair, a semi-permanent copper colour or demi-permanent copper colour. This is followed by a second gloss (or glaze) at the basin, which gives the hair a shimmering hint of tone to add intense colour reflection and give the hair a filtered look.

Maintaining Your Brunette At Home 

The Christophe Robin Shade Variation Range is your go-to for maintaining a rich brunette between salon visits. These are pigmented masks that work to neutralise unwanted cool tones and nourish hair at the same time. The Ash Brown shade is enriched with liquorice extract to restore an intense, cool brunette shade. 

You don’t need a professional for this one; simply shampoo your hair like usual, towel dry, and then apply from root to tip and leave on for 30 minutes. Lasting only 2-3 washes, this is the ultimate no-commitment glaze! 



To wrap things up, it's clear that the strong, glamorous personas of mob wives have inspired a shift in hair trends. Big curls, voluminous updos and healthy, rich colour all serve as a way to channel the confidence and resilience embodied by these characters. 

Combine a nourishing pigmented mask, classic blow dry brush, and a few pumps of volumising hair mousse; you’re on the way to a bigger than life, mob wife hairstyle that screams booked and busy.

As always, our number one tip to nailing this trend is to have beautiful vibrant locks, because healthy hair always looks better!
