Brigitte Bardot's sexy style has inspired women for generations.  It's the  combination of French sophistication and wholesome school girl that results in timeless chic.

Hollywood hairdresser Mika Fowler looked to Bardot as she helped a client create a bombshell pony with the Bardot signature teased crown.  This easy-to-replicate style helps a client feel successful and also shows off beautiful cut and color.  Fowler started off with a dry cut (WATCH video below) to get the requisite choppy fringe and then instructed her in a few simple steps to achieve ooh-la-la results.
