The French twist is great for prom, weddings or any formal occasion. Here's how to do it:
- Slick back hair with gel. You can part hair on the side for a more stylish, trendy look or slick hair completely back with gel.
- Pull hair down at nape of neck & twist it. If your hair is super-silky, you might want help with a 'hair rat.' (I know, sounds awful, but it works). You can get these at any beauty supply store. These were used in the '30s & '40s to help women with upsweeps & French twists.
- Pin the twist into place. You will want to make sure you use enough pins.
- Spray your French twist with hairspray.
