Creating a French twist doesn't have to be difficult. This classic updo is as easy as it gets with a little know-how. Add a little texture to this hairstyle and watch the shape transform from a slick French twist into one with maximum volume and fullness! Scroll down to learn how-to create a Classic French Twist.
For best results, texturize your hair with the Sam Villa Textur® Iron to create volume and soft, moldable texture making your hair easier to work with. To texturize your hair, take horizontal sections and spray a minimum of 6-8" away with Redken quick tease 15 backcombing finishing spray to protect the hair from heat and for maximum iron results. Use the Sam Villa Textur® Texturizing Iron tapping the plates down the length of your hair to texturize the entire head.
Create a part where you normally wear it using your Sam Villa Detangling Comb. Next, gather the sides and back of your hair into a slightly off-center ponytail. Use your Sam Villa Styling Brush to smooth out your hair into a nice tight ponytail.
Pinch the ponytail with your left hand and use your right hand to roll the length diagonally in (almost toward your right ear) to create a French twist in seconds.
Complete your French twist and tuck any loose ends back behind your twist.
Use long hairpins to secure your roll beginning in the center, then anchor the top and bottom with additional hairpins.
