French Twist hairstyling

French Twist is that it can be easily adapted in numerous ways to give it unique and an edgy sizzling look that works with up to the minute fashions and styles.  A French Twist can be fashioned from just about any length of hair or type of texture. 

Even super short tressed young ladies can be French Twisted with a little help from pin on ponytails or instant add-on hair extensions.  

How to do a French Hair Twist Style?

Use your hands to smooth and collect your hair into a tight ponytail. Make sure that the pony section is very smooth.  Once you have it in place hold it with your hands but do not pin it. Holding the entire ponytail twist it all the way around twice, in a clockwise direction. This twisting action will hold the base of your hair closer to your head and give you a tight base to work against. Hold the base of the ponytail in your left hand. With your right, hold its end up, pointing directly up towards the ceiling.

With your right hand, gently fold the end of the ponytail, about the top third, down towards the nape of your neck. Fold the entire ponytail down under itself, towards your nape so that is it less than half as long as it was. Curl the folded ponytail in your left hand. There should be a slight hollow between the ponytail and your scalp.

With your right hand, begin to gently push the upper right hand portion of the folded ponytail down into the hollow. Continue pushing the hair underneath your left hand into the hollow so that the folded ponytail is slowly rolling inside the hollow. The twist is complete when you can't push any additional hair into the hollow and the folded ponytail has become a tight roll. Create a seam by tucking in bobby pins that are the same color as your natural hair along the line formed where the right hand edge of the roll meets your scalp starting at the bottom.

Place bobby pins all along the seam up to the top of the roll, concealing them just under the roll. Begin to push the upper portion of the ponytail over into the space with the other hand, so that the folded part is slowly rolling over into it. When you have pushed all the hair in, secure with hairpins along the seam formed by the join, starting at the bottom. Conceal the hairpins by pushing them right underneath the roll.

Challenges while doing the Coils and Twist hairstyles

  • When twisting hair from side to side it is important that you physically move your whole body weight from one side to the other.
  • Stand to the right shoulder first then the left shoulder and repeat.
  • Keep hair flat to head, do not hold out at an angle or tension will be lost.
