TikTok is back at it, and is now promoting the “clean girl aesthetic” - which, for once, is a perfectly healthy and easy look to achieve. But what is clean girl aesthetic exactly, and how to achieve it? This is your ultimate guide to live the life of a minimalistic queen.
1. Clean Girl: How To Be Aesthetic (back to index)
You probably heard of “that girl”, now get ready for the clean girl. But what defines a clean girl exactly? Let’s have a look together.
The stereotype of the clean girl orbits around neutral tones, minimalism, skincare, wellness, yoga, healthy food and a good workout session every now and then. What’s not to love about this healthy trend? Let’s have a look at the major bullet points to focus on in order to quickly achieve this effortless, flawless look.
- Eat healthy
- Invest in good skincare
- Start exercising
- Use the “no-makeup” make up method
- Change your wardrobe to neutral tones
- Wear white sneakers
- Learn how to style your hair
- Keep your eyebrows, nails and lashes done
2. Clean Girl Aesthetic: You Are What You Eat (back to index)
The number one rule of a clean girl is that you can’t be clean on the outside if you’re not taking care of your inside with just as much care. A clean girl is always wary of what she puts on the table when it’s lunch time, and opts for healthy snacks to sugary, fatty products.
The “you are what you eat” concept also applies to your hair and skin, which can gain a lot of benefits from a healthy diet. We have talked more in detail about how what you eat can influence the beauty and health of your hair in our blog: 6 Foods to Eat for Healthy Hair.

3. Clean Girl Aesthetic: Skincare Day Every Day (back to index)
Clean girls are characterised by that glowy, dewy look. Their skin flawlessly reflects the warm sunlight in golden hour selfies and their minimal highlighter is always popping as if they are glowing from the inside. How is that possible? Well, whilst there are some skin conditions that may need professional help to be dealt with, a good skincare routine is a good basis to start from. Cleansing and regular, gentle exfoliating, followed by spf and moisturiser are usually the first steps to a good skin care routine. Imagine, Kim Kardashian’s skin care routine has 9 (!) steps!

4. Clean Girl Aesthetic: It’s Time To Workout (back to index)
Nobody likes the idea of starting to work out from zero, but I can promise you - you’ll end up getting addicted to that boost of endorphins! Exercising regularly is good for mobility, keeps your blood circulation flowing nicely (giving you that natural flush!), keeps your muscles toned, releases stress, helps with anxiety… Do I have to go on with the list of benefits?
5. Clean Girl Aesthetic: No-Makeup Makeup (back to index)
A clean girl always keeps it minimal, but doesn’t miss out on being well groomed, cleansed and moisturised. If you’ve been keeping up with your skincare routine, chances are you have already seen a great improvement in the way your skin looks and feels, but this might not always be enough - you may want to add a little something for a day out, or even just for work. In that case, always remember that the clean girl makeup is studied to look as if you aren’t wearing any! Natural, nude tones and light coverage are the key to the perfect clean girl makeup. Top tip: make sure your mani-pedi is always on point!

6. Clean Girl Aesthetic: How To Make An Aesthetic Outfit (back to index)
The clean girl knows that less is more, and as this trend is based on minimalism it’s easy to see how the obvious choice falls on neutral tones, delicate patterns and monochromatic outfits.
Workout, lounge and shapewear sets from brands such as Fabletics, Skims, and Gymshark are a fan favourite; tones such as a black, white, grey, brown, cream, olive green, powder blue, dusty pink, sand and stone are the preferred colours. White, chunky sneakers are usually preferred - however, flat sandals are a common option during the warmer months.

7. Clean Girl Look: Hair Aesthetic (back to index)
Last but not least, let’s talk about hair! The clean girl usually sports either a blunt cut or long, healthy tresses that she always wears in an orderly, elegant manner. From the casual messy bun to the edgier double Dutch braids, a clean girl will never be seen with her long, layered haircut all messed up. If you don’t want to get a blunt cut but you don’t have the necessary volume and length to achieve these hairstyles, you can grab your human hair extensions here and experiment with the latest hair trends.
Clean Girl Hair Aesthetic: Messy Bun
The messy bun quickly became a timeless classic, so much that even Hailey Bieber made this hairstyle her go-to hairdo for her wedding. Quick and easy to realise, you can achieve a messy bun with the aid of clip-in hair extensions.
@thekeirajones I think I’m onto something here… #messybun #cleangirlaesthetic ♬ original sound - Keira Jones
Clean Girl Hair Aesthetic: The Retro Ponytail
Made famous by model and aesthetic queen Bella Hadid (and subsequently sported by Kylie Jenner) this hairstyle has quickly broken the internet with its popularity - and it’s easy to see why. You can make it yours and achieve a fuller, healthier look with a mini wrap-around clip-in ponytail hair extension.

Clean Girl Hair Aesthetic: The Claw Clip Updo
Claw clips are back! Like many other Y2K hairstyles (pssst… you can read more about Y2K hairstyle ideas here) claw clips have recently made a roaring comeback and have already been spotted on celebrities such as Jennifer Lopez.

Clean Girl Hair Aesthetic: Glass Hair
If you have a blunt, even haircut, then you may want to give this trend a go. Glossy, shiny and neat, the glass hair trend goes hand in hand with the rest of the clean girl aesthetic. Made viral by celebrity hair stylist Chris Appleton and his muse Kim Kardashian, the glass hair trend quickly became a TikTok sensation.

Clean Girl Hair Aesthetic: The Spiky Bun
Also known as the “model off-duty” hairstyle, this top-knot twist is yet another hairstyle gone viral after model Bella Hadid accidentally made it famous. Simple but effective - just like the rest of the clean girl look.

8. Conclusion: (back to index)
The clean girl aesthetic is more than a hairstyle or an outfit! Instead, it promotes a polished yet minimalistic lifestyle to live and breathe, particularly revolving around self-care, wellness, and health. The clean girl knows how to put herself first, when to turn her phone down and how to live life through positive affirmations, manifesting abundance and oozing ultimate class. The trend draws inspiration from celebrity models such as Hailey Bieber and Bella Hadid, with hints from the Kardashians and actors and singers such as Selena Gomez, Ariana Grande and Millie Bobby-Brown. Are you ready to embark on a journey of self love with this trend?
