The site showcases stylists’ professional expertise and promotes the latest industry innovations. Through smart, conversational content, Salon Secret brings stylists to their clients in a new way.

Just in case you missed the memo, it’s time to give your curling tongs and straightening iron a rest. Messy, just-rolled-out-of-bed ‘French girl’ hair is in, and it looks like it’s here to stay. Here’s how to get this effortless, tousled look regardless of your hair type or texture.

 

The French Twist Hairstyle

 

Start by sweeping your hair to the side and pinning it in place. Twist the length of the hair and lift it up, tucking it behind the portion that you pinned, and secure once again. Embrace the messy look – there’s no need to use hairspray to tame those fly-aways!

The French Bun

 

Add some bounce and shine to your locks with texture-enhancing Messy Cliché Styling Spray from the L’Oréal Professionnel French Girl Hair styling range. Next, tie your hair up into a very high ponytail. Pull at the strands on the crown of the head to ensure that they aren’t secured tightly and to create a relaxed, messy look. Wrap the length of the hair around the hairband and secure loosely with pins. Pull out a few extra strands to finish off the look.

 

The French Braid Hairstyle

 

Perfect for girls with thick hair, the French Froissé Styling Cream from the L’Oréal Professionnel French Girl Hair styling range will give your locks texture for this style. From there, if you can French braid your hair, do so. If not, a regular plait will work. The key to adding laid-back French sass to either look is to pull on your hair after braiding to create a messier aesthetic.

 

We’re sure you’ll all agree that ‘au naturel’ has never looked so good! A big thank you goes out to our French sistas for helping us simplify our morning routines and embrace our natural beauty. French girl hair for the win!
