‘Mad Men’-Inspired French Twist from Cricket

This fall, take a leap into the swinging ’60s with this Mad Men-inspired French twist from Cricket. What looks better with a tight pencil skirt and sweater than the coyly demure, volume-pumped hair styles worn by Betty, Joan and Peggy? To get the look, bust out your Cricket Amped Up Teasing Brush custom designed with boar and nylon mixed multi-level bristles and follow the steps below. Happy styling!

    Step 1: Divide hair into sections – one section of hair on either side of the face to be pulled back later (not too much hair, save it for the good stuff in the back!) Divide the remaining hair into two sections (horizontally, not vertically – you aren’t making pigtails) at the top of the crown.
    Step 2: Take a portion of the third section at the crown of thehead and back-comb or tease the base of the hair using the Amped Up Teasing Brush, creating a bodacious bird’s nest! Spray it with hairspray and tease section forward, and secure with bobby-pins at the crown of the head.

    Take the second middle section and repeat teasing motion with the Teasing Brush and layer it over the first bump and pin in place.

    Pull the front side sections smoothly and tautly around and pin it right underneath the bump on either side, to help hold the elevated hair in place and prevent spillage.

    Take the remaining hair at the base of head and pull strand together as if creating a pony tail, twist and pin tuck into the twist from the top down.
