The Flowing French Twist

EXPERT TIP

This fresh-looking French twist hairstyle is ideal for embellishing with a flower or elegant hair clip for even more drama. Remember to keep ends trimmed for this style to look its best.

HOW TO ACHIEVE THE LOOK

STEP 1

Wash and condition hair.

STEP 2

Towel-dry hair until damp and scrunch with a towel to help prevent damage and split ends.

STEP 3

Cover a wide-tooth comb with mousse and work it through your hair from root to tip. Blow-dry hair completely, using a round brush underneath your hair and the blow-dryer on top to straighten hair from root to tip.

STEP 4

With your hands, gather all hair into a ponytail slightly below the crown of your head and skewing toward the left, about 3 inches from your left ear. Smooth the front of the ponytail with a flat brush, first brushing the middle section of your hair and then the sides. Once hair is smooth, secure the ponytail with a rubber band.

STEP 5

Once the ponytail is secure, spray 3-4 pumps of detangler in your palm; rub your hands together and work the palms of your hands over the surface of your head, not the ponytail.

STEP 6

With both hands, twist the ponytail inward to create a roll that covers the rubber band; the roll should be in an up-and-down direction (parallel to your nose) and consist of only 1-2 rotations. Once the twist is in place, thread bobby pins throughout the twist to secure it to your head, leaving the ends of the ponytail free. Start the bobby pins at the top of the twist, angling them down and hiding their ends inside the twist. We recommend using 3 bobby pins between the top and middle of the twist and another 3 between the bottom and the middle of this French twist hairstyle.

STEP 7

Place your left hand over the twist to keep it stable; with your right hand, brush through the ends of your hair with a small boar bristle brush. This will keep the ends looking smooth and uniform.

STEP 8

Seal this French twist hairstyle with an aerosol extra hold hairspray, spraying it about 10 inches away from the hair. Focus the hairspray on the twist and the top of the hair, not on the length.
