How to Get Chic French Girl Hair


We admire them for their joie de vivre because being effortlessly chic and sophisticated just seems to come naturally to French girls.

The clothes, the food, the wine, the attitude! It’s that whole vibe that French girl’s have which we are constantly chasing. So it’s no wonder the Parisiennes’ signature low-key aesthetic also extends to the way they style their hair. It may look effortless but we all know looking like you “haven’t” tried requires a lot of time (and product).
What’s the secret to getting tres chic tousled tresses? How to get chic French girl hair? Luckily for us Francophiles there is no need to travel abroad to learn these secrets, we have a brand new spot right here in Las Vegas at Fashion Show, created by our own un expert en cheveux a la française, Signature Salon by Claude Baruk.
If you have been binging Emily in Paris and longing to add a dash of French chic to your look, this is the place to get that effortlessly well-coiffed (or should I say de-coiffed) cut, colour and style like a French girl.
I sat in Claude’s chair to get a taste of the French Girl hair experience with one of his expert blow-outs and we chatted about how to get chic French girl hair.
French Girl Hair Secrets

Three Secrets to French Girl Hair from the Expert Himself, Claude Baruk

Un- “In France we love the natural. The “not styled” effect, but styled. It may take you a bit of time in front of the mirror but the final effect should be that you didn’t spend any time on it. We call it négligé. It should look very natural and say ‘I didn’t have time to do my hair’ but it’s perfect.  It’s the French version of  ‘I woke up like this’.”

Deux- “The French love quality hair products. Kerastase is extremely famous in France which we carry in the salon, but the French also love niche brands.  There are a few of these niche brands that I love that will be coming to the US market soon, that my salon will be able to help you discover like Mon Shampoing and from the South of France Vegetalement Provence.  Both product lines are cruelty free, clean beauty comprised of organic botanical ingredients. ”

Trois- “Balayage is a signature French girl hair technique. Balayage is a French word meaning ‘to sweep’ or ‘to paint’. It allows for a sun-kissed natural-looking hair colour, similar to what nature gives us as children. Rather than dyeing the hair with one single lighter colour, there are two shades, and one is always slightly darker. This gives that true Parisian vibe.”
