Explore the world and learn secrets for beautiful hair! This week, Madison Reed visits France to bring you hair care secrets, fashion-forward trends, and fascinating facts.

A magnet for lovers of gourmet food, fine wine, and fine arts, France possesses an irresistibly elegant charm. This elegance influences the fashion, style, beauty, and creativity which is displayed on every street corner.

Beauty Tip: Au naturale

A popular, au courant look for French women is to keep their hair, skin and nails all natural. With this style, if they wear makeup, they tend to lean toward the “no makeup look”–with just a little bit of concealer and foundation, eyebrows filled in, and lashes curled. The focus is mostly on treating the skin well, and appreciating the essence of all-natural beauty.

Hairstyle: the Twist

It’s a classic look that French women have worn for decades, and it still stands as one of the most popular hairstyles in France today. Convenient and stylish, the twist is a versatile variation of the bun, and can be created in multiple ways.

Fun Facts:

  • France has more visitors than any country in the world–approximately 79 million per year
  • There is only one stop sign in all of Paris
  • Coco Chanel’s real name was Gabrielle Bonheur
  • Paris is considered one of the most romantic places in the world
