For years I thought my hair was too long to do a French twist.
All of the instructions that I’d ever seen left a lot of hair hanging out the top of my twist, and I could never figure out where I was supposed to stuff it all.
Then one day a friend showed me a genius way to twist all of my long hair up into a French twist. It literally took seconds. I was shocked!
Now? It’s still my favorite way to do a French twist in my long hair, but I also do it this way in my girls’ hair that’s not nearly as long. In fact, it’s become my favorite way to do a French twist in anyone’s hair!
This method is so quick and easy. If you’ve ever struggled to figure out how to make a French twist work, don’t despair! Give this technique a try.
My guess is that if you do, you’ll be throwing your hair up into elegant French twists like a pro in no time.

As I mention in the video, I can secure this French twist in a few ways.
- I can use a large Flexi-Clip since my hair is so long.
- I can use a set of You-Pins.
- I can use a pair of hair sticks.
Of course, you can also use a bunch of bobby pins criss-crossed under the twist. I prefer the Lilla Rose items much more, though. They’re prettier, and they are so much more comfortable than the handful of bobby pins I used before I met Lilla Rose.
Voila! A fast, easy style that looks elegant enough to see you to a wedding or evening out at a classy restaurant. What do you think?
Have you ever done a French twist this way?
