French Twist: A Timeless, Easy, Medium Hair Updo

Looking for an easy updo with an edge? The French twist is perfect.

I think the French twist is timeless. I’m really enjoying adding variants to this style right now—like a double French twist...It’s really a timeless look that is easy to put an edge on and give customization to the client.

To ensure the final look is sleek and polished, we suggest using a very strong hold hairspray like the L'Oréal Professionnel Tecni.Art Infinium 4. No need to worry about strands slipping loose on the dance floor when you're armed with this statement-making formula.

Girls With Curls: Updo For Curly, Medium Length Hair

This medium hair updo is so easy to achieve and lets you embrace your hair’s natural texture. That’s right: Curly-haired girls, listen up! All you have to do is twist and pin up sections of your hair, using bobby pins to lock the final shape of the style in place.

We suggest using a hair cream like L’Oréal Professionnel's Tecni.Art Dual Stylers Bouncy & Tender to create defined curls with a soft touch. The result? An effortless bohemian hairstyle that looks deceivingly intricate.

These updos have you looking as chic as ever—plus, they’re practically foolproof! Try one out to amp up your formal ‘do at any occasion.
