Shortcut To Sexy: How To Get Brigitte Bardot’s Go-To ‘Do

What percentage of women would you say count Brigitte Bardot as one of their top hair idols? We'd say that number is pretty high. Bardot pretty much cornered the market on all things voluminous, wispy, and sexily undone — what else could wear a big bow on her head and look so damn hot?
Although Bardot's signature hair appears to be effortless, anyone who's ever tried to recreate those perfect undone waves on our mere-mortal heads of hair knows how difficult it really is to get right. To help us on our quest for French-girl perfection, The Beauty Department delivered with this how-to (hint: It includes the sneaky use of a single hair extension). Check out the full tutorial, and let us know if you're successful in your pursuit of those tumbling waves! (The Beauty Department)
