How-To: Modernized French Twist

The French twist is a perennial classic—depending on how you style it, you can go from glamorous to elegant to edgy. For this version, use your fingers instead of a brush to smooth the midlengths and ends before pinning the seam to make the twist look more “undone” and modern. Get the how-to!

HOW-TO STEPS

  • 1

    Apply Kadus Professional Dramatize It, a strong-hold mousse that gives volume for up to 24 hours, to the roots. Blow-dry, then lightly backcomb the roots of the crown and back areas. Smooth the midlengths and ends with a soft brush, then pull the hair to the lower back of the head, slightly overdirecting to one side. Create a “seam” in the back with pins.

  • 2

    Take the remaining hair and carefully, but firmly, wrap around one hand.

  • 3

    Gently withdraw your hand and hold the rolled hair in place. Secure the roll from the inside with hair pins.

  • 4

    Finish with a spray of Kadus Extra Lock, an extra-strong hairspray that can be an extreme-hold depending on how much you use.
