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