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

A tiny place with a warm, resort-like feel to it, the French Riviera is a coastal portion of the south of France. This area is not just a playground for the rich and famous—the beaches, views, and romantic getaways are open to everyone. From gorgeous sites to gorgeous people, the French Riviera is a must-visit.

Beauty Tip: The Perfect Bronze

From St. Tropez to Cannes, women everywhere on the Riviera sport perfectly bronzed bodies that glisten in the natural sunshine. It’s “in” to be bronzed all year-round, as the sun never stops. Women avoid baking in the sun (and you can, too) by using a shimmery self-tanner on their bodies and a glistening bronzer for their faces. Highlight the collarbone, neck and jawline with a bronzer two shades darker than the skin tone to achieve a gorgeous bronzed beauty look.

Hairstyle: Wet look

Women in the Southern regions of France are known for their elegant, resort-ready style—with long, light, and flowy silk dresses, movie star sunglasses, and hair slicked back in an ever-so-chic way. This style has a beachy vibe with an upscale touch. This look can be achieved with slicked straight hair, a dollop of mousse or styling product like Madison Reed's Style, and a very fine-tooth comb. Just comb your hair back to precision and lock it all in with a strong-hold hair spray.

Fun Facts:

  • Between the hours of 2pm and 7pm, most restaurants don’t serve food (which is possibly why the French stay so thin)!
  • One of the best food markets in the world is located in Cannes. The Marche Forville helps drive the point to why France is the gastronomic capital of the world.
  • The French Riviera has approximately 300 days of sunshine a year.
