If you’re heading to a lot of parties this holiday season, coming up with the perfect hairstyle can be daunting.
The lazy girl’s French twist is one of our favorite fresh takes on the updo as it looks chic and sophisticated while being surprisingly easy to re-create (thanks to celebrity hairstylist Kylee Heath).
Take a look below to see how she puts together the perfect French twist in five minutes flat!
Start on dry hair that has been thoroughly brushed and blow-dried.
Use a fine-tooth comb to brush all your hair to the right, then crisscross bobby pins starting at the nape of the neck leading up to the crown, about an inch to the right of the center of your neck.
Separate the hair on the right side of your face just in front of the ear, and clip away.
Twist unclipped hair to the left, rolling the ends into themselves, then secure by crisscrossing more bobby pins, angling the pins down.
Note: Be sure you know how to use a bobby pin correctly (it’s not the way you think!).
Use a 1¼-inch curling iron to curl 1-inch sections of the remaining hair away from the face. Let cool, then separate with fingers.
