I've made no secret of my obsession with French-girl hair. There's just something effortlessly chic about the strands of our continental fashion friends that I can only ever hope to replicate with my own five-minute work hairstyles. However, I think there's one style in particular that French girls lead the way in above all others: the fringe. A tricky thing to get right, fringes are notorious for being both high maintenance (in terms of regular trims and hair washing) and difficult to pull off. French women, however, seem to have discovered the perfect fringe formula, and trust me—it looks good every single time.
Their secret to fringe success? A centre parting that separates their bangs into two sections. It works for all hair types, but the key to that effortless French vibe is allowing a bit of your forehead to shine through in the centre. Keep scrolling for TK of the best French-girl fringes around.
Fringes can require a little maintenance to look their best. Thankfully, this brush is suitable for all hair types—it's particularly good for thick and curly strands—and is great for using for blow-drying your fringe into place.
A greasy fringe is never a good look, but bangs are prone to oiliness due to their constant contact with our forehead. This French pharmacy dry shampoo soaks up excess oil when you're in-between washes.
