Naturally, one of the over-arching themes in the Byrdie Australia office for 2018 is to live more like French-girls do. We've definitely got the croissant part down pat, and our beauty shelves are fully stocked with Bioderma's cult Sensiobio micellar water, so the next move we're making is tending to our hair

There's no hair inspo quite like French-girl hair inspo, so below we've rounded up 10 heavenly hair colours for you to screenshot and Pin to your heart's delight. From sandy blonde, to deliciously warm brunettes, there'll be a style to suit you. Keep on scrolling, and don't forget to double-tap your favourites. 

It-girl Taylor LaShae has the French-girl hair of our dreams. Her chocolate brown colour is the work of Athena at Oscar Oscar Salon in Sydney, if you're curious. Rich, sweet brunette is best when it's shiny, so opt for a colour-safe hair regime, and use L'Oreal Professionnel Serie Expert Vitamino Color A-OX Shampoo ($26) to protect your hair. 

Jeanne Damas proves that natural colour need not be boring. Her ashy brown looks incredible with just a touch of lightness through the ends. French-girl balayage, so it seems. 

Aside from looking like a baby cherub, French model Thylane has hair to die for. Her natural brunette melts into a delicious shade of golden blonde. Keep yellow tones at bay with a wash of Fudge Clean Blonde Violet Toning Shampoo ($22) once a week. 

This dirty blonde as worn by Pairsienne journalist Sabina is the perfect lived-in shade. Golden highlights are made edgy with a hint of regrowth. The chicest way to save money on salon appointments. 

Camille Rowe is our forever French-muse, and her dark, sandy blonde is just right. Use a bit of salt spray to give it a lived-in vibe. 

Louise Follain looks heavenly with this mocha brown hue (against her olive skin, it's magic). Ask your colourist for a rich, warm brunette, then all you'll need is a baguette. 

Another cool, ashy brown that looks natural yet extremely chic. French beauty blogger and makeup artist Violette is the ultimate French girl beauty muse—I mean, look at those eyes. 

French model Sonia Ben Ammar (who's also a Dolce and Gabbana muse—no biggy) wears this glossy mahogany shade like it's nobodies business. Keep long lengths in check with a hydrating mask like Oribe's Signature Moisture Mask ($89). 

Not quite blonde, but not really brunette, Lily-Rose Depp's shade is natural, and low-maintenance (in true French-girl style). Bonus points for natural texture, too. 

French model and influencer Camille's glossy blonde is definitely the work of a hair magician. The root shadow keeps it cool, while the creamy blonde is super luxe.
