  • A french twist is a style where the hair is pulled back and twisted into a vertical coil.
  • Audrey Hepburn was one of the first stars to wear the elegant style (most notably in the iconic film “Breakfast at Tiffany’s”).
  • Whether you have short, medium, or long hair, this easy updo is for everyone.



Experimenting with your beauty look can boost your confidence. Regardless of what your signature hairstyle is, it’s always fun to mix it up and add new hair ideas to your rotation. Whether you’re attending a special occasion like a loved one’s wedding or just want to try a cute updo, we’ve got the perfect style for you: the french twist. While there are various cool hairstyles, including chic braids and Hailey Bieber-approved buns, the french twist hairstyle is a classic.

This style is extremely similar to the french roll. It looks elegant, shows off your neckline and shoulders, and even serves as a protective style where you don’t have to worry about your hair getting in your face. To learn how to do a french twist, we called on stylist Gina Schiappacasse of Hairstory, a cool downtown members-only salon. Here, she gives a french-twist-updo tutorial so you can master the look at home.
