French Twist With Holiday Sophistication

Pair your new LBD with a chic holiday hairstyle and you’ll be turning heads at that special soirée. Here is how you can re-create this pretty updo with five easy-to-follow steps from Justin German, Pantene Pro-V Consulting Stylist.

Step one: To give your hair the added boost needed for this modern style, start with Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Solutions Flat to Volume Shampoo and Conditioner.

Step two: Spritz damp hair with Pantene Pro-V Root Lifter Spray Gel and blow dry upside down for extra volume.

Step three: Add some curls to the crown of your head with hot rollers or a curling iron. Temporarily pin the curls aside, allowing them to set. This will give your hair the shape and height it needs. Pull out some strands to frame your face.

Step four: Pin up the back of your hair by twisting strands upward and securing with bobby pins. To create a French roll style, continuously pin as you twist, incorporating more strands as you progress upwards. To help secure the look, cross bobby pins in an “X” for a stronger hold.

Step five: Brush out the curls set aside earlier, then gently tease strands at the crown by back brushing, to create added volume. Pin into the twist at the back. Finish off your look with Pantene Pro-V Lasting Volume Hairspray.

Our tip: add a little bling or a bow for extra interest.
