When it comes to all things hair, Parisians can honestly do no wrong. Not only have French girls mastered the art of perfectly undone hair, but they alway seem to lead the way when it comes to chic, effortless hairstyles that exude that certain je ne sais quoi. If you’ve ever hoped to emulate French-girl hair, there are a few signature haircuts and hairstyles that French women frequently turn to. From messy, textured bobs to elegant chignons, we’ve rounded up six gorgeous hairstyles that Parisians swear by. 

Collarbone Bob

Short, but not too short, this clavicle-skimming, layered cut has been a hit with French girls like model Jeanne Damas. Often paired with bangs and featuring soft, textured layers, this style allows for a lot more versatility than the classic bob, making it ideal for those who still want to be able to sweep their locks up into an easy bun or ponytail. 

Textured Chignon

There’s just something so feminine and effortless about the soft, undone chignons that seem to now be a trademark of French girl style. Not only does this hairstyle work for just about every hair type and texture but it’s super easy to achieve. Simply gather your hair at the nape of your neck, roll into a loose bun, then twist and pin in place. For an extra romantic touch, make like influencer Sabina Socol and pull out a few pieces of hair to frame your face. 

Off-Center Part + Messy Curls

When it comes to how French girls style their hair, they’re big fans of an off-center part. Not only is a crooked part more universally flattering, but it still gives the illusion of a middle part without being quite as harsh. Plus, an off-center part tends to look really nice paired with a messy head of curls as influencer Zoïa Mossour proves. 

Curly Bob

A curly bob with fringe is a style that continues to be popular with French girls with curly hair  and for good reason—it’s so easy to style. Whether you rock your curls a bit more messy or more defined like influencer Franny Fyne, you honestly can’t go wrong. Not to mention, there are so many variations of this cut, so you can really make it work for your face shape and hair texture. 

One Length Cut + Fringe

Walk the streets of Paris and you’ll be sure to spot many French women, like influencer Emmanuelle Koffi, sporting the one length cut with a bit of fringe. Inspired by French icon Jane Birkin, the blunt, one-length look not only feels super modern and clean but requires way less upkeep. 

Classic French Bob

Few styles are more chic or classic than a French bob. Sitting a bit shorter than the average bob, this cheekbone-skimming style is often paired with straight across or curtain bangs. The best part about this cut is that it’s super low maintenance requiring little to no additional time spent styling it. No wonder It-girls like Taylor LaShae can’t get enough of this look.
