The Classic French Twist Updo

The classic French twist hairstyle is one of my favorite styles when my hair is growing out from a bob cut. All you need is for your hair to be long enough to pull into a high ponytail at the back of your head, a rat tail comb to twist your hair to the side and tuck the loose ends under, a few bobby pins to secure it into place, and voila! you have the stylish and sleek French twist.

You can also combine the French twist with a high teased crown to make an updo-beehive combination, the way Audrey Hepburn wore her hair when she played Holly Golightly in “Breakfast at Tiffany’s.”
