7 New Updos Anyone Can Wear
In a hair rut? These gorgeous and wearable styles, inspired by the looks seen at Fashion Week, are just what you need
French twist with a twistYou're probably already familiar with a traditional French twist, but this look, done by Ouidad for the Timo Weiland show, has a messy, modern spin. The key to keeping this look fresh: Ditch the brushes and use your fingers to style the look. Here's what to do:
Step 1: Apply a heat-protectant gel, like Ouidad Climate Control Heat and Humidity Gel, $13, and do a rough blow dry on hair to bring out your natural texture.
Step 2: Using your fingers, create a side part in your hair and pull hair back into a low ponytail.
Step 3: Very loosely pull the pony up and twist and pin into that classic French twist shape. Don't worry if strands fall out or it looks messy; that's kind of the point.
