Wavy Hair Showdown: French Girl Hair vs. The 70s Blowout

French girl hair versus 70s blowout

French Girl Hair and The 70s Blowout are both wavy on-trend hair styles that walk the fine line between casual, sexy and sophisticated. So, do you go for fringed and messy or polished and voluminous? Here we compare the two looks...

French Girl Hair

The look: The waves are subtle, irregular and just a bit messy in the most beautiful way possible. The whole look is topped off with a lash-skimming fringe that's long and airy. Magnifique!

The style: This look is the epitome of effortless beauty "à la française". It's chic, seductive and casual all at once. For the fashionista about town, this is the style for you.

What the editors say: Pulling off this look requires a number of key components to come together well in advance. Firstly, you need a classic French Girl hair style - preferably with bangs. You also need to colour your locks a deep French brown. From there, it's just a matter of adding the waves!

The 70s Blowout

The look: There's no bell bottoms in sight, but this big, voluminous style signals the return of the seventies! This retro-inspired look is centre parted to create stunning symmetry and then styled into thick waves that cascade around the face.

The style: What strikes you most about The 70s Blowout is its ethereal and feminine quality. The style is polished enough to wear to the office yet casual enough that it wouldn't look out of place on the weekends.

What the editors say: Redhead, brunette or blonde: whatever your shade, The 70s Blowout will look sublime on long locks. Finish with a spritz of shine spray like L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.ART Shower Shine to give your waves hold and sheen.
