hey guys welcome back to my channel
today i want to share with you a very
easy foolproof way to achieve the
classic French twist I think this
hairstyle is so timeless and beautiful
it’s perfect for any special occasion I
know some of you have prom and
graduation coming up and I always think
that it would be perfect for a wedding
as well but i’m going to show you my
tips to achieve it so let’s get started
if you didn’t already know the French
twist involves a lot of Bobby pinning so
you will need quite a few bobby pins on
hand the longer your hair the more pins
you will need it’s a help you need
everything it’s smooth and in order i’d
recommend having a comb on hand but it’s
not necessary feel free to part your
hair as normal but parting her hair on
this side i think will really work best
for this hairstyle and we’re going to do
is just brush all of your hair back
making sure it’s free of any knots or
tangles so that we’re left with a really
nice smooth finish then you just want to
gather all of your hair as a back of
your neck nice and low making sure that
you’re grabbing all of those little baby
neck hairs as well is going to give you
a more polished finish and you just want
to make sure that everything is nice and
tight and smooth then grab the base of
your ponytail with your one hand and you
just want to begin twisting the base in
a clockwise motion keeping everything
nice and tight once you start twisting
it direct your ponytail upwards and
you’ll notice the twist of the French
twist just forms on its own now once the
twist has formed if you have excess hair
left out of the top like I do then what
you’ll want to do is secure the top of
your French twist to your head to help
hold everything into place I used about
six bobby pins and you want to make sure
that you’re inserting them on angles to
create X’s which will help keep
everything nice and secure if you have
short hair I’m jealous because you’re
done at this point but if you have excess
hair is sticking out the top like i do then
what you want to do is twist this
remaining hair and we’re going to tuck
it underneath the twist that we created
this is definitely a little trickier the
longer your hair
so you’ll have to work a little bit
harder to tuck it all in but there is a
pocket there and I promise if you are
persistent you can do it my biggest tip
for getting all of your hair into the
pocket is take your time it’s quite
tight in there so just use your
fingertips to really work that hair into
the pocket and you’ll find that it
starts going in really easy if your ends
become untwisted just twist them back up
again I find that this also makes it
easier to tuck your hair in and just
make sure that you are getting all of
those ends in there too you don’t want
any poking out once the hair is tucked
in it should all feel nice and secure
but I highly suggest Bobby pinning the
underside of the twist to your head I
used about five bobby pins inserting
them vertically as well as in an X at
the base of my twist just really hold
everything in place when you’re Bobby
pinning your hair you want to try your
best to keep them hidden but if some of
them are showing and you do want to
cover them up what you can do is grab at
the side of the French twist and gently
pull it over the bobby pins and then
secure vertically with a bobby pin into
place and you just want to repeat this
all the way up the French twist and this
will hide all of your bobby pins and
then for the front i’m just going to
take the end of a comb and kind of slide
it underneath and just gently pull up
these sections just to loosen them up a
little bit and not make it so pinned to
my head so there you have you guys that
is how you create this beautiful and
classic French twist hairstyle I’ve
