How to Make a Classic French Twist

Take a day to go old-school Hollywood with a classic French twist. A clean updo can make the difference between a good hair day and a great one. Check out our steps for getting this look at home!


Take your glamour to the next level with this classic French twist. First, part your hair as desired, then tease sections around the crown. Smooth your hair afterwards to make sure no knots are showing. Then gather your hair like you would for a ponytail. Wrap the hair around your thumb a few times, roll down until you can pull your thumb out, and secure the twist with pins. As an extra step, you can pull pieces forward around the face to create a softer look. Now take this old-school Hollywood red carpet look with you to your next formal event (or girls' night out, we won't judge).
