French Girl Look: This is how French women wear their hair now, and we want it the same way, please...
For hair inspiration, let's look to France again. Because there, the beautiful French women are now opting for this natural hairstyle, which we don't want to withhold from you.
French Haircut: These hairstyle trends reflect the ultimate “French Girl Look”.
Ever since the French bob, everyone has wanted hair with that certain Parisian charm. But French women also simply have a flair for aesthetics – also when it comes to their hair. We'll tell you here how they look best this season and what criteria they should meet in order to go the typical French way.
Who better to know how French women style their hair now than someone who is responsible for their hairstyles themselves? David Mallett is a well-known hairstylist with several salons, including one in Paris. And there his customers are pretty much in agreement with their requirements: They want natural movement in their hair and a look that looks perfectly imperfect, while everything is still just right. They want it to look effortless, although they may have put more time and products into styling it than they care to admit.
In an interview, David divulged how this can be imagined in concrete terms. The mix of shag, i.e. a layered cut with 70s vibes, and mullet, which is known in this country as a mullet, is particularly popular. This hairstyle combo, which according to the hairstylist works with straight, wavy, and curly hair, is reinterpreted in a French way for 2022 without losing its retro character. Overall, it's about an aesthetic that moves away from geometric lines and reflects the lightness and bohemian chic.
The main thing is that the look isn't too accurate, because if there's one thing French women don't like, it's a smoothly brushed sleek look with no rough edges. That's why step-cut ponies are still in great demand. By the way, for the French vibe, they are cut in such a way that they are reminiscent of frayed jeans. And what about the hair color? Similar to the cut, the French want something casual with a freestyle touch. Specifically, according to David, this means: "The color has to be dimensional. It has to be diffuse, soft, and undefined. It should blur and merge towards the roots. Excessively fine highlights are a big no-go!"
