How to Make a French Twist


The classic French twist is elegant and sleek, perfect for special occasions like weddings and black-tie parties. The modern French twist, a flirty modification of the classic, is good for cocktail parties, work or a night out on the town.



Things You'll Need

  • Large paddle brush
  • Pins

      Take large sections of your hair and, using a large paddle brush, begin to lightly backcomb everywhere. This will give your twist body and lift. Once all the hair is done, gently smooth out the hair without brushing out the backcombing.

      Gently brush your hair all the way to one side, making sure the hair is really smooth. Using as many pins as needed, pin your hair straight up the back.

      Gather the remaining hair. Put your thumb in the center and twist the hair around your thumb. Take hair as many hair pins and secure the twist. For added security, make sure you really gather the hair into the pin and push it into place.

      Finish the whole look with hair spray to tame any little flyaways or hairs that are coming out.
