I told myself at the beginning of the year that I wanted to do a hairstyle each Friday. So far I feel pretty good about myself, I’ve done all but one Friday! I started with how to use dry shampoo because we all need it, don’t we? The week after I showed you my “dirty hair approved” style which was an easy messy bun with two headbands. Then I showed you a personal favorite, perfect for your next hot date or party, a deep side part with a simple side French braid. It’s so pretty! I actually wore my hair similar to my dad’s retirement dinner.
Then I missed a week. But I was flying 19 hours with my kids half way across the world, so I’ve given myself a little break. You understand, right? Thanks!
Today I have another dirty hair approved style. Because let’s face it, my hair is dirty the majority of the time. So these styles come in handy! The beautiful thing about today’s hairstyle is that your hair won’t look dirty because of the wonderfulness of dry shampoo & back combing & twisting. It’s awesome.
Easy French Twist
What you’ll need:
- Teaser comb like this one because you’ll want the tongs on the other side.
- Dry Shampoo – Here’s what I use but check out this post for a list of other recommendations
- Bobby Pins
- Hair pins
- Hair spray – My personal favorite
Basically you tease the heck out of your hair all over, even all the way to the ends. Then you separate out the part with less hair and hold it forward. You’ll see why. Twist, pin, and tuck the rest into a French braid at the back of your head. Secure with bobby pins. Then take the side you left out and tease it so it has the same amount of volume as the other side. Secure it by tucking it into the twist you’ve already made. Smooth out and make sure it’s even, finish with hairspray & you’re done!
Just in case that wasn’t a good enough explanation, I’ve got a video tutorial for you! I really hope it’s easy to follow and I’ve got some lovely French music playing in the background!
I hope you get to give it a try this weekend or even on a busy day this week, it can be done fast! Have a great weekend!
