I’m a bit obsessed with French women and their beauty routines. From their skincare to their makeup and even their hairstyles, they always have the best product recommendations, and they also tend to know all of the tips and tricks to get that effortlessly chic look they’re so famous for. With 2024 set to be another big year for the bob hairstyle (amongst other short hair trends), I’ve been thinking about how French women often style their short hair, and I decided to do some research into the topic.

After hours spent scrolling on Instagram and TikTok and admiring all of my favourite French influencers, I realised that some key short hair trends kept cropping up again and again (pardon the pun). Not only did all of these trends look super elevated, but a lot of them are easy to re-create and give off those chic, Parisian vibes. So, if you’re thinking about getting the chop for the new year, I highly recommend that you keep on scrolling to see how some of the most stylish French women are choosing to wear their short hair. After seeing all this inspo I might even book a hair appointment myself…

It’s no secret that bob hairstyles are everywhere, but it seems that the wavy bob is the most popular style amongst the French fashion set. Loose, relaxed curls or waves really do give off that effortlessly cool feel. 

Want to really elevate the look? Opt for a chic middle parting for a polished finish.

This texture spray will help to enhance natural waves and curls. 

If you prefer to use a hair tool to achieve your waves, I highly recommend this wand from GHD.

Layered haircuts are set to be huge this year, and these French women are already one step ahead. If you want to add some volume or movement to your short style, then this is the trend for you.

It’s giving Rachel Green and I’m totally here for it.

A blowdry brush is great for styling shorter layers as it gives a really bouncy finish.

Don’t forget a blowdry product to protect from heat damage and assist in smoothing your hair. 

Want an easy way to switch up your short hair? A side parting might be the way to go. I’ve always been a middle-parting kind of girl, but there’s no denying how classy this looks.

No matter your hair type or texture, a side parting will instantly elevate any outfit.

A sectioning comb like this one will make it so much easier to get that sharp side parting.

Try adding some gel through your roots for that slicked-back look. 

Finally, for a really Parisian look, add a fringe to your short style. Not only does it look incredible with a bob, but it also adds that little something extra when you want to wear your hair up.

The combination of this blunt bob with a block fringe is seriously convincing me.

To keep your fringe looking bouncy and fresh, add a few quick sprays of this texture spray from Living Proof.
