The Flirty "French Disco" Hairstyle Trend Is Taking Over, Just in Time For Summer

The '90s may be praised for its accessories, but right now, it's all about the '70s-inspired hairstyles. You've probably seen the "Farrah Fawcett flip" all over TikTok and shag cuts just about everywhere else, but is the "French disco" hairstyle on your radar yet?

Coined by celebrity hairstylist and beauty-industry veteran Kevin Murphy, this trend is positioned to be huge this summer. "French disco is a look that we created at Fashion Week before the global lockdowns," Murphy told POPSUGAR. "It's a departure from the messy French-girl look that we all know — it's a bit more pulled together." Think: big, voluminous curls and lots of body and movement, "kind of like how you might swish your hair around because you are going out."

It's more polished and refined than the cool and effortless French bob without being stiff or too perfect. It's the kind of hairstyle you'd want to wear to the disco in the '70s, but with a modern update to make it feel fresh for 2021. After over a year of staying home and doing very little with your hair, the high-glam style is perfect for a summer of getting back out there (safely, of course).
