Love J.Lo's French Twist Hairstyle? Copy It in 5 Easy Steps!


Since you asked for a how-to when Beth first showed you Jennifer Lopez's soft updo a little while back, I had to make it happen. The French twist is a classic that every girl should know. Try J.Lo's updated version and I promise you'll get compliments left and right the first time you wear it! Now, here's how to copy the look: First, create a deep side part, and then pull your hair back as if you were going to do a ponytail. Face your middle and index fingers down. With the one hand holding the ends of your hair, twist your hair into a roll shape. Now secure the "seam" with hairpins or bobby pins, making sure to use enough to lock in the shape. Spread the top out to reveal the shape, then secure with more pins. Pull a few pieces out from around your face and you are ready to go.
