It's a cut, it's a style, it's a color...it's French girl hair! You've heard us talk about it before, and now you can finally learn how to achieve the iconic look that's taking over the fashion world. You'll reach ultimate Parisian chic status in no time.
The right haircut is one of the most important elements of French girl hair. Ask your hairstylist to cut your hair into a lob that reaches your collarbones and then give you either long piecey bangs or 70s-style curtain bangs.
The overall style is a bit rock 'n' roll with slightly messy and irregular waves. Texture is key, as well as a bit of volume, so don't hesitate to add a texturizing spray or powder to your hair, especially if it's freshly washed - the more 'bedhead' it looks, the better!
French brown hair was made popular by a British hairstylist and was inspired by French brunette icons like Charlotte Gainsbourg and Caroline de Maigret. Depending on what your natural shade is, your colorist might have to do a pre-color treatment first before applying the brown color, so that no copper or reddish tones show through. Keep in mind that if you're a blonde or redhead this process could take a few hours, but the end result will be well worth it!
