as one of the most sought-after celebrity hair stylists in the business, Ted Gibson is most known for working over the tresses of top celebrities like Angelina Jolie, Amanda Bynes, Demi Moore, Renee Zellweger and Anne Hathaway.
recently, Ted gave insiders tips to create the perfect updated french twist hairstyle.
take a look:
step 1: begin with a spray of your favorite volumizer and blow dry with a medium barrel brush.
step 2: backcomb the crown of your hair for volume and height. starting at the crown, grab small sections of hair, hold up firmly with one hand and insert a fine-tooth teasing comb halfway between roots and ends, glide comb downward. by creating volume through the top, it looks more modern.
step 3: next, create the french twist by starting at the bottom of hair and twist and pin into a twist.
step 4: spray hairspray to the twist to create a firm hold. use your fingers to pull pieces out to make it look a little undone.
simple enough, right? try it yourself, it's super easy, and you can make it as messy as your comfortable with-- have fun!
