Not How They Have Made the Dance Their Own in Paris
Unless you speak fluent French, or studied French in school more than a year, the chances are slim that you can even begin to understand those two preceding lead-in sentences. Fortunately, they are referring to a new, gorgeous French-influenced hair trend that is totally easier to accomplish than any attempt to learn the language ever was. Everyone knows what a French twist is–the woman’s hairstyle where the hair is tucked into a vertical roll that runs down the back of the head. (And no, it’s not some type of Parisian version of the wildly popular dance made famous by a long ago Chubby Checker chart-topping dance song!) The french twist, a la modern style has come back, but with amazingly stunning style you wouldn’t believe, unless you saw it for yourself!
Make Your Undone French Twist a Secure One
The Undone French twist can be done on any length and any texture of hair. And all you need to do the basic style is a hairbrush or comb and some bobby pins. For the most superior hold you can get, it’s really worth investing some time in purchasing the Dianne brand of bobby pins. their superior holding ability makes it possible to secure any style without worries or constant repinning. The investment of time will come from you finding a place where you can buy them. Google them and get yourself some. You’ll be glad you did! The style breaks down into two processes: the left side, followed by the right side. The “finish” is accomplished by leaving the ends unpinned, and just hanging down, freely. Before you begin, thoroughly brush your hair to make sure you have no tangles to interfere with the style. Gently tousle your hair, and then put the brush away.
The Left Side
Begin by pulling the hair on the left side back, gently running your fingers to rake through it as you go. Once the hair is pulled all the way back, secure starting from about an inch above the hairline at the nape of your neck all the way up the back of your head about 5-6 inches with a line of bobby pins lined up vertically.
The Right Side
For the right side, you will be working in sections, with the top section being fuller than the others. Using only the fingers again, pull the top section loosely back, and when you get to where the left side’s bobby pins are, go just slightly over these to obscure them, and take the section and wrap it around, making what was the outermost hair of that section now the side facing your head, and secure with bobby pins underneath, not visible. Leave the remainder of the section to hang down. It will be successively secured by the other wrapped sections as you move downward with the wrapping. Each section should be roughly 1.5 inches wide, but gauged on your hair’s thickness, of course. Once you get to the nape of your neck hairline, use bobby pins to draw up both sides into the twist, so they’ll appear to be more fused with the entire style. Finish off with a little hairspray, and you’re done. This style can be done with a middle part or a side part, but if you do it with a side part, make sure the section you begin with is the side the part is on, or the side with less hair.
