Reinterpretation of an Old Classic

Some hairstyles are like a little black dress, they never go out of style. One such look is the classic French Roll (also known as the French Twist). From Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast at Tiffany’s to Catherine Deneuve, the French roll is beloved for its chic look and easy to achieve style. It’s worn by dozens of actresses on the red carpet and this season was a featured trend at New York Fashion Week. The best part about the roll is its diversity.

At Betsey Johnson I created a roll of extravagant proportions, extending the roll upwards with plenty of volume.

At Louise Goldin Anthony Turner kept the look sleek and simple, while at Clover Canyon Linh Nguyen used an Alice band to create an almost beehive effect.

So what to pair with the hairstyle of the season? A beautiful makeup look of course! While you can wear your French roll with jeans and a T-shirt or a pencil skirt and floaty blouse, there’s also a makeup look that can work no matter the occasion. Whether you’re heading out on a first date or having brunch with friends, nothing beats a cat eye. And the best part? All you need is some black eye liner and plenty of practice. While a bold lip may make some uncomfortable, a cat eye is a great way to make your eyes appear larger and adds some oomph to your look. Just look at Brigitte Bardot!
