Hair Tutorial + Video: High French Twist Faux Hawk…

hair tutorial, retro updo, high french twist

A few weeks ago I styled my hair in this high French twist {featured in this outfit post} and had requests for an instructional hair tutorial. So here it is 😉 It’s a fun look because it sort of mimics a faux-hawk or a short haircut if you slick the sides back. If you leave it looser, it has a sort of modern retro/40’s look which I thought worked well with the military-inspired ruffle dress I was wearing. It’s an easy style once you get the hang of it. Also, in the first few minutes of the video I talk about how I air-dry my hair… if you don’t care about that part, skip to about 2:11 when the tutorial begins.


Watch my how to video here…

I used…

* small {metallic gold} bobby pins
* jumbo bobby pins
* clear plastic hair pins
* Bed Head Biggie Maxxed out hair spray
