Emily in Paris is growing up and heading into season 4. We have seen that Lily Collins is moving away from the girlish waves and becoming braver with her haircuts, first there was the chic French Fringe and now we have spotted a new addition the “French Step”.
This versatile trend has been around since 2021 and has been going through a few transitions, we first saw it as “The Hime” or “Princess Cut” and in 2021 it became an iconic look racking up 60 million views on TikTok. The haircut was named after noblewomen back in the Herian period in Japanese history, 794 to 1185. The hair cut was given to young women as a celebration of coming of age in a ceremony called Binsogi . It is a combination of two haircuts, longer at the back and shorter sharp lines at the front. The haircut gathered pace after lockdown and throughout history you are able to see that after key moments in history new haircuts are born. This one in particular was a rebellion haircut with people taking back power of their identity, showing their strength and resilience through a haircut.
We are loving the “French Step” on Lily Collins, it has added so much interest to her hair and given so many options when styling. We particularly love how it takes a boring ponytail to a new level of chic. The haircut can be personalised to suit any face shape, it can help to accentuate cheekbones or worn longer to soften a square shaped face. This haircut is so much fun and love that it is bringing clients back into salons for interesting haircuts.
ELEVEN Australia have introduced 2 cutting classes in the Undertone Collection, the classes will allow you to confidently create versions of this upcoming trend. Co-Creative Director and Co-Founder of ELEVEN Australia Joey Scandizzo said “The beauty of subtlety and the power of restraint. Clean lines with purpose, small silhouettes and fresh understated tones bring to life the UNDERTONE Collection. This collection explores four modern haircuts with finished styling. Working with classic fade barbering techniques and a stepped out cool bob with a square fringe, understated disconnections, and texturising techniques. The looks are versatile, lived-in, and very wearable. While each look can be transformative, these cuts and styles can be adapted to suit the individual needs of any client”.
