The lockdown boredom has forced many girls to give themselves a drastic makeover, and the easiest way to do this is by going chop-chop and embracing the bob haircut. The latest haircut to have taken the beauty world by storm is the French girl bob. We’ve always looked up to French women for their effortless elegance; so, when this chic and rebellious looking French bob hairstyle flooded our social media feeds, we knew we had to tell you all about it.
This hairstyle is perfect for so many reasons; for starters, it gives you a major makeover if you’ve been sporting long hair all this while. Secondly, if you tried colouring your hair at home and failed miserably, it helps get rid of that too. And just like all the other bob hairstyles out there, it is seriously low maintenance. So, the next time you receive a message on the team group saying, ’Zoom call in 10,’ you will be ready in 5!
Wondering what sets the modern French bob apart from the traditional bob? Well, traditional bobs end at the mouth line and are usually coupled with brow-skimming bangs. The trendy French girl bob haircut is a little longer and ends at collarbone or cheekbone. You can skip the fringe completely or wear side-swept bangs to perk things up. Here are a few looks you can take inspiration from.

You don’t need to have silky and sleek looking hair, it looks equally chic and stylish on hair that’s a little textured.

Side parted, asymmetrical French bobs look effortlessly stylish. Part your hair on either side and give that fringe a complete miss.
