How To Create Soft French-Girl Waves At Home, According To This Celebrity Hair Stylist

If the word "effortless" was to manifest itself as a hairstyle, it would be soft French-girl hair.

Soft loose waves are a go-to celebrity style: Blake Lively, Alexa Chung and Chrissy Teigen all regularly rock the French-girl look. Here, we show how you can too, at home. 

The perfectly smooth, bouncy-curled blowout had its moment, but now it’s all about lived-in hair—real texture, undone waves—the maybe-I-did-wake-up-like-this styles. And we couldn’t be happier.

Partly because it means our wash-and-go days have become more and more frequent, but also because on the days we want to do more than air-dry, it means we get to embrace the dreamy, fuzzy texture made famous by our favourite ’70s beauty icons. Couldn’t we all use an updated version of flower-child hair? Dylan Bradshaw thinks so, and as one of Ireland’s most in-demand stylists, he knows a thing or two about the trend. 

With his expert guidance, the Dyson Airwrap Styler (more on that later) and this step-by-step tutorial, you can master the soft French-girl waves look in no time. 


Below, Dylan Bradshaw shows us exactly how she achieves those soft French-girl waves we all know and love on none other than our very own editor, Amy Heffernan.

Back in 2016, Dyson sparked industry waves when it launched its first-ever hair product, the Supersonic Hairdryer. Now, roughly two years later (a long pause in highly anticipated beauty launch speak), it's hit us with an epic styling tool. Meet the Dyson Airwrap Styler, available in three different configurations of accessories and attachments (don't worry, we'll get to the logistics in a second) and sure to rock strands worldwide.

Regardless of whether you desire voluminous curls, effortless waves, or the smoothest of blowouts, the Airwrap is here for you. It ingeniously uses the Coanda effect to style the hair. The Coanda effect occurs when a high-speed jet of air flows across a surface and, due to differences in pressure, the air flow attaches itself to the surface. Taking advantage of this principle Dyson’s team of aerodynamicists created a way to style hair using only air combined with heat.

But how does it work?  First, it's powered by the Dyson Digital Motor V9, which pairs with the unique styling attachments. Essentially, it allows you to style without the need for extreme heat, which is kind of the dream, right? The writing on the wall? Great hair, without the extreme heat. Then, the different barrels and attachments give you the opportunity to customize your curl, wave, or sleekness. The Airwrap Complete features six attachments, while the Volume+Shape and the Smooth+Control  each contain four. 

So if your bank balance is telling you no more curly blow-dry appointments but your heart is saying otherwise, the Dyson Airwrap Styler combined with the tutorial above is your solution.
