Stylist Sessions: Fall for French Bob with Freddy

As the leaves change and the air crisps up, it's time to welcome the latest hair trend for Autumn/Winter 2024: the French Bob. In our first session with one of our stylists, we sat down with our resident master stylist, Freddy Pinzon. Here's why Freddy thinks the French bob is stealing the spotlight this season.

Reasons to Fall for the French Bob

Easy and Low Maintenance: Say goodbye to lengthy styling sessions. The French bob is all about chic simplicity, making it the perfect choice for those who crave a stunning look with minimal effort.


Texture & Movement: Add life to your locks! The French bob delivers incredible texture and movement, especially when paired with a fringe. Embrace the playful dance of your hair as you move through the autumn breeze.


Versatile & Effortless: Whether you're a trendsetter or a classic beauty, the French bob adapts effortlessly to your style. It's the versatile choice that complements any wardrobe and occasion.

Who Should Rock the French Bob

Freddy recommends that anyone with a long face can pull off this new trend — oval, diamond, or rectangle-shaped faces, that means you! The French bob works its magic by creating balance and making your face appear slightly shorter, achieving the perfect proportion.

In relation to age, Freddy tells us that anyone can rock a French Bob. It breathes youthful energy into every age, enhancing your features and adding a touch of timeless elegance.

Hair Types that Thrive with the French Bob

Soft Wavy Hair: Embrace the natural wave. The French bob loves soft, flowing waves (not coils) that add a touch of romance to your look.

Straight Hair: Keep it sleek and chic. Straight hair finds a perfect match in the French bob, enhancing its classic allure.


The Perfect Palette for Your French Bob

Any colour can rock a french bob, but all the different shades of brown seem to pop the most. Think dark brown, chocolate brown, golden brown, caramel brown – the autumnal hues are in season. Freddy recommends choosing the brown that speaks to you and let it be the canvas for your French bob masterpiece. 

If you want to go a little lighter, Freddy suggests going for honey blonde. Light up your look with honey blonde tones that capture the fading warmth of the season.

No matter what colour you choose, Freddy recommended opting for a full base colour; no foils needed. Let your French bob shine as a seamless, stunning block of colour.

Drying & Styling Tips

When it comes to drying, Freddy tells us to let nature do its work. Allow your French bob to air-dry for voluminous locks that speak of effortlessness.

Once dry, if you’d like to style your bob, Freddy loves elevating the French Bob style with textured waves. This amplifies that effortless chic look that the French Bob craves.
