Here’s how to put a French Twist together:

  1. Start by prepping your hair with  Iles Formula Finishing Serum to give your hair a more nourished texture and make it easier to style
  2. Sweep all your hair to one side and place bobby pins vertically to keep it in place all day long
  3. To create more volume and dimension, comb all hair back and tease both sides
  4. Gather hair in one hand, twist tightly, and pull up into a roll. Tuck and insert bobby pins vertically to secure the roll in place.
  5. Tuck, the loose ends of the hair inside the twist and use more pins to hold the ends in place.


4. Ribbon it

Top knots are super versatile for every occasion. Wearing one at Thanksgiving will make you look and feel very pulled together while giving off effortlessly chill vibes. And adding an Iles Formula Twilly to the top knot only makes it look classier. Just check out the example below!
