Want to learn how to do your hair or your daughter’s hair in a French twist? Learning how to do hair in a French twist is a definite and clear advantage. It is a beautiful and elegant hairstyle. Not only is the French twist a gorgeous style, it’s casual enough for jeans, yet classy enough to wear to a prom or an elegant dinner party. It’s also a low maintenance style. Once you do your hair up, you can wear it the entire day without having to stop and re-do it all the time.
The first thing you need to do is to gather your hair up into a simple pony tail. Make sure that you like the way the hair around your face looks. Having a few wisps next to your face can be a good thing.
Next, hold your pony tail up in the air and begin to twist it. Which way you twist doesn’t matter, but two to three twists should do the trick. You should feel the pressure of the twist on the back of your head.
Next, you will fold the twisted pony tail in half, and secure the bottom part of the twist in with the pony tail holder. The middle of the twist will now be at the bottom of your head.
Now comes the most challenging part of learning how to do hair in a French twist. You need to twist this halved pony tail again a few more times.
You’ll get the hang of it after you practice a few times. Now twist it, and finally pin it to your head using your hand.
Now you secure the twist to your head with several bobby pins. If you push the pins in just where the twist meets the hair on your head, you’ll be able to hide the pins more effectively.
A small mirror can be invaluable if no one is helping you. Hold it up in front of you while you stand facing away from the bathroom mirror, checking to see how your hair looks.
If you like what you see and feel confident you’ve learned how to do hair in a French twist, spray it down with a bottle of hairspray and voila! You’re ready to go.
