French Girl Bob With a Tousled Fringe
French girl hairstyles are currently dominating the mane game, thanks to the likes of Taylor LaShae, Jeanne Damas and Anne-Laure Mais.

The best thing about this look? If you’re looking for short fringe hairstyles that’ll flatter like no other, this cut is perfect for angular square-shaped faces, as well as fuller round faces. Now, you can’t argue with that, can you?
This is one for all you lazy girls! Why? A textured wispy fringe is one of the most popular low maintenance cuts. Not only does it require less styling (the messier the better), wispy fringes look just as good long and they do short, so fringe trims can be spaced out. Win-win!
Exude Brigitte Bardot vibes with this gorgeous short hair fringe look, that’s cleverly split down the middle for a romantic appeal. Oh la la!
