The Formal French Twist
1. Begin by using an ionic blow dryer and round brush to create smooth, straight hair.
2.Use a large barrel curling iron (Remington’s T-Studio Pearl Ceramic Wand – 1 -1/2 inch) throughout your hair.
3. Brush hair back and hold (as if you are making a ponytail) and then start to twist. As you continue to twist, the hair will coil toward your head.
4. Tuck the ends into the base of your twist and pin in place. Flowers or jeweled hairpins in the seam of the twist add glamour!
5. Finish with hairspray to hold the style.
1. You can wear your hair wavy or straight in this style, so decide which you’d like to try and dry your hair accordingly (Remington T-Studio Ceramic dryer).
2. Part hair (center or off to one side) and secure a low ponytail at the base of your neck.
3. Spray the ponytail with an aerosol hairspray and wrap the pony into a bun, securing with bobby pins.
4. Finish with jeweled pins or a flower.
The Royal Highness Half Up/ Half Down
2. Use large hot rollers (Remington T-Studio Pearl Ceramic Heated Clip Setters) to add bounce.
2. After the setters have cooled, remove, brush out hair and decide on your part.
3. Take 3 inch sections above your ears and pull back in a ponytail with a snag-free elastic.
4. Wrap a section of hair around the ponytail to conceal the elastic.
