How To Do A French Twist
Still searching for that party-perfect hairstyle that will make you the most coveted cutie pie under the mistletoe? Some of the best holiday updos are DIY. The classic French twist never goes out of style and you can do at home with ease—this hairstyle is elevated to something boldly modern when you amp up the volume with a soft, subtle pompadour. Try on French twist hairstyles in our virtual hairstyle studio or follow these tips to get the look on your own.

To create a smoking hot French Twist without spending big bucks at a salon, wash your hair with volumizing shampoo and conditioner. Towel dry, apply mousse to damp roots and blow dry hair using a large boar-bristle brush. If your hair is wavy or curly, run a flat iron over your mane to get a straightened effect. Tease your hair at the crown into a subtle pompadour and gather it into a low, tight ponytail at the nape of your neck. Grab the ponytail from the bottom, twist it upward to one side and tuck it under, securing with bobby pins that match your hair color. A pomade or styling wax will keep the top and sides slick and prevent fly-aways. Pull out a few face-framing tendrils to soften the look or pull your bangs off your face to spotlights gorgeous features. Try a sexy side-swept look if have long bangs or long layers in front. Create an off-center part , swoop long strands across your forehead and secure with a pretty accessory or basic bobby pin behind one ear. -Stephanie Simons

not a stupid question at all! um i use a round flat bristle brush but i'm sure u can prob use a comb. i like to spray a tiny bit of hairspray after just so it stays poofy, and then comb a layer of hair over it to hide the teased part. This comment has been removed.
sorry, this might be a stupid question...but what kind of brush/comb do people use for this hairdo? and do I need to spray my hair AFTER I tease it? This comment has been removed.
