I get so bored with basic buns. Yes they are easy. Yes they are simple. Yes they are effective. But who doesn't need a little spunky variety in their hair obsessed life? And thanks to my protective style rolodex I'm never stuck in a bored basic bun rut for long. Meet the Side French Twist with a Twist. It totally reminds me of a french roll gone rogue!
Side French Twist with a Twist
- Moisturize and detangle hair. (This style was created on stretched and air dried hair)
- Create a side part then separate hair ear to ear.
- Pull the left side across the back of your head. Secure with a pin. Repeat with the left side.
- Divide the back into four sections. Grab the first section closer to your ear and wrap it towards your head in a large finger curl, then use a pin to secure. Repeat on the next two sections, staggering each tuck to create the side twist.
- Double strand twist the remaining section then pull it across the top of your side french twist. Use a pin to tuck it into the opening of the curl on the opposite side.
- My hair isn't thick enough. No worries. This style makes your hair appear more voluminous than it actually is. Fine haired chicas can still rock this one.
- My hair has too much texture. Start the style with stretched hair. I usually go for bantu knots but a old braid/twist out would work just as well.
- My hair isn't long enough. If your hair is fully neck length, you can pull this off. Because your hair is tucked in, length isn't that big of a factor. Make your french twist tight. Then pick it apart a little at a time to create the illusion of a fuller updo. Neat hair need not apply!
