French Twist

With the Oscars last night I decided that I wanted to try a little something more glamorous with my hair. It’s long and straight, and I really probably need a haircut, but I thought what the heck, let’s do something different. So I settled on a French twist. I’ve not always had the best of luck with this hairstyle. But I thought maybe this time is the trick. It did turn out pretty well after I found some good instructions on how to do it. So, here are some easy to follow instructions on a French twist.

Push all hair with your left hand to the right of your head, then anchor it firmly with bobby pins. With a brush, twist the hair on the right over the bobby pins, twisting it upward with your chin up or the hair will loosen. After it is twisted into place, anchor it with a hairpin at the crown. Now both hands are free.

Hold the roll and place hairpins (or bobby pins) in the direction shown in the drawing. Important: Since the hair is twisted upward pins must be placed downward.

Keep in mind these instructions are for a right handed person. If you’re a lefty reverse the instructions.

  1. Thanks for the tutorial. The line of bobby pins must be the key - my twists never worked out when I had long hair.

  2. That's a beautiful style - very fancy! :)
