If, like us, you’ve spent the better half of this year in lockdown, it’s safe to assume that a trip to the hair salon is first on the agenda, after reemerging into the world again.
And while we patiently wait to cure our hair fatigue with a fresh new ‘do, why not spend the time working up the courage to make a dramatic chop?
Enter: the French Girl Bob.
Perfect for the summer seasons, this on-trend hairstyle is a must-have for those after an adventurous change. The style sits at a rather short length, finishing at around cheekbone-level, and can be paired with a front or curtain fringe to complete the look.
But alas, sporting the bob—à la It-girl Taylor LaShae—may not suit every face shape, so it’s important to understand how a stylist can make that judgement call, before you commit to the look in the salon chair (and potentially scream sacré bleu).
After all, given the warmer weather headed our way, low-maintenance tresses and leaving your neck open for a fresh breeze is hard to pass up.
“This bob is only for a very small group of people and is best suited for your wash-and-wear women that have a little bit more of a natural curve to their hair,” said Joey Scandizzo, Co-Creative Director of ELEVEN Australia, as per ELLE Australia.
When it comes to French Girl Bob upkeep, the style is gloriously low maintenance. Thanks to the dramatic nature of the cut, there’s no need to spend hours in front of the mirror fussing over each strand placement. In fact, the messier it looks, the better.
