For French women, hair tends to be natural, and a little bit undone and messy. French women always lead the way when it comes to chic, simple hairstyles that look like they haven’t taken any time at all. And they always prefer to embrace their natural hair texture for natural-looking and chic hairstyles.
From short bobs to blunt fringes to lobs, here is a full rundown on what types of haircuts you should be asking your stylist. Some of them are very easy to maintain and ask for less hair salon visits. Here are some of the most chic hairstyles you might want to try !
The bob cut, also known as a bob is still very popular in France and continues to be seen all over the streets of Paris. This cut is a short to medium length haircut, in which the hair is typically cut straight around the head at about jaw-level. It can be with a fringe (or “bangs”) at the front or without.
Lob & Wispy Bangs
A lob is a long bob and the length is between long hair and a bob cut. The lob is cut just above the shoulders, at shoulder level, or just below. And this haircut has been really popular in Paris for a while now! It’s one of those haircuts that suit most women and is easy to style and maintain.
Short Undone Bob (French Bob)
A French bob is a form of a cropped bob that’s cut at chin-length and paired with bangs sitting at the brow line. This French haircut has been modernized by a blunt cut, heavy texture, and beachy wavy hair. And there are plenty of variations of the cut that you can choose to suit your face shape.
French women don’t like to look like they’ve spent too much time on their hair. And this hairstyle exudes perfectly the typical French style. You can recreate this hairstyle on naturally curly or wavy hair by allowing your hair to air-dry after washing.
Long, Blond & Layered Bangs
This hairstyle is inspired by ’70s Brigitte Bardot and it continues to be seen all over the streets of Paris. This type of hairstyle is a good option for anyone a little scared of bangs. Layered bangs blend into your hair and have tons of different lengths, which means you can style them however you want. Indeed, you can part them down the middle, have them lay straight, or throw them to the side.
Sleek Long Lob
A long lob is a lob that is cut below the clavicles. And it is one of the more popular hairstyles because it flatters most face shapes. It’s also the perfect hairstyle for those who have naturally straight hair. This long lob is very easy to style as well! After cutting your hair, ask your stylist to air-dry, then scrunch for a bit of texture. This hairstyle should never look overdone but should feel extremely natural.
