How-To: Disheveled French Twist by Jenny Balding

The holidays are just around the corner and clients will be attending an array of work & play parties this season. Jenny Balding, NYC Cutler/Redken Stylist shares her favorite style to take clients from work to play – achieving this look in under 10 minutes!

How-To Disheveled French Twist:

  1. • Start with day old hair as you’ll have some texture in your hair and it will be easier to manage.
    Use dry shampoo to really boost the texture of your roots (Redken Pillow Proof Dry Shampoo is excellent!). Spray throughout your roots and even the mid-lengths to create body and texture. Shake through with your fingers.
    • Use a light hairspray for a little hold – Redken Fashion Work 12 Versatile Hairspray works best as it is a versatile spray. Mist over all and shake up with your hands to really create body and movement.
    • Section out the crown and front area and pin to one side.
    • Sweep the sides and back together and then twist upwards and pin. Make sure to use hairpins (U shaped pins) so they can really anchor the hair.
    • Take your top section and roll under and pin at the crown for a little height in this area.
    Loosen the hairline a little with your fingers to work suits your face shape best then add a hair accessory of your choice.
