One of the hottest haircut for women in 2023 is the French bob. This is a classic hairstyle that will keep your hair cut short right along your jawline in a blunt cut. You can pair your new look with bangs or no bangs it is truly up to you. Women love French bob haircut no matter what age they are it will leave you feeling chic and stylish.
For women, the French bob haircut represents a hairstyle that denotes independence, with a progressive tone and that appeared for the first time in the 20s on French actresses.
Easy to maintain, with a sexy allure, this hairstyle is similar to the usual bob haircut, the only difference is that the French bob hair is cut a little shorter. Usually, actresses wore their hair covered with a beret and it quickly became a Parisian style in those days.
Over time, this type of bob haircut has evolved and now we find it in different versions, including curly or with highlights or even in colors that stand out (such as pink, yellow, blue), sometimes tied in the tail but also in a bun.
“So the traditional French bob, which was a haircut up to the level of the mouth, has undergone changes over time, very rarely do we have requirements for an original Parisian bob haircut” says the hairstylist Alex Browing.
There are some funky styles with bright colors added in and some more traditional styles with simple highlights. You can wear a French bob with thin or thick hair as long as you style it correctly you are going to love the way you look.
