Cindy Crawford is getting real about aging — specifically about her aging hair.

The iconic supermodel revealed in a recent interview with InStyle that she wasn't totally prepared for how aging would affect her hair. Crawford then also admitted that seeing her 21-year-old daughter Kaia Gerber's gorgeous locks only makes her jealous!

"I look at my daughter and notice that her hair is shiny and healthy looking — she has my old hair, and I want it back!" she told the magazine.

"Everyone tells you your skin will age, but no one tells you your hair will age too," Crawford, 56, continued. "I think we all expect to get gray hair, but I wasn't aware that the texture was going to change, it was going to become more brittle, it was going to shed more, and basically just be lackluster."

This became Crawford's latest goal for her brand, Meaningful Beauty: to address not only my aging hair but to bring a solution to the market for the many other women out there experiencing these aging hair issues.

The model knows a thing or two about great hair — her legendary blowout has inspired many copycats as Gen Z recreates the look.

"It's always fun to see trends and styles come back around but updated at the same time," she said of the big blowout she made famous coming back around. "It reminds me of all the things about '90s style [that] I loved. There was an unapologetically sexy and fun attitude."

Crawford added that it's still one of her favorite looks! "To this day, I still like a great blowout with a round brush and then Velcro rollers," she said. "It gives you some volume and soft, shiny waves — I call it the 'Madison Avenue blowout.'"

Even though Crawford might envy her daughter's youthful hair, she's also Kaia's biggest supporter.
