Mastering the Parisian Chic Wavy Hairstyle

This look is so French that as soon as you give it a try, you will feel like François Hardy immediately.

First of all, as a disclaimer, this hair style will only really work for people with at least medium length hair that is straight or already wavy hair. Bangs are optional, but definitely add to the look. As someone with ridiculously curly hair, I would have to straighten or relax my hair first and then give this look a try.


Here’s what we’re going for with this: You step out of your Parisian apartment looking put together but also a but like you forgot to comb your hair that day. You sit at a cafe, unbothered, smoking your cigarette and feeling effortlessly chic and French. All that it takes to feel that is this easy wavy hair style.

The style has been perfected by Laurent Philippon, a famous fashion hair stylist who really knows what it takes to make the look work. And while most French girls probably are already too chic to put in this much work for a hair style, the rest of us have to try a little harder. But with the help of a curling iron, a brush, and some trusty hair spray, the look is easier than it looks to achieve.
