In case you haven’t noticed, we love learning how women in different countries dress, style their hair, and wear their makeup. For starters, we’ve compared and contrasted Italian and American lingerie preferences and analyzed the difference between British and American outfit choices. Most recently, I wanted to explore how L.A. girls are inspired by French haircuts, and I found the perfect person to tap: hairstylist David Pierre Pappalardo.
Pappalardo grew up in the South of France and now owns a chic West Hollywood hair salon called The Hair Atelier, making him the ideal person to offer insight on Californian versus French hairstyles. “French women have a very particular style. When it comes to hair, they tend to work with the natural texture, and they understand what their hair can and cannot do,” Pappalardo told Who What Wear. “They also shampoo their hair significantly less and that has an impact on the texture.” Keep reading below for his take on the specific French haircuts that L.A. girls are asking for right now, with the most popular one listed at the end.
