The French twist is a classic hairstyle that many women consider a staple and when we found it combined with one the all-time best hairstyles ever – the humble ponytail – we just had to make a tutorial. This is basically the hairstyle that has it all. It's chic, it incorporates some interesting detail and it's also pretty easy to recreate.

As far as finding the perfect party hairstyle goes, this style has you covered!

You will need:

- Hairbrush
- Tail comb
- Bold Control Hairspray
- Bobby pins
- Hair elastic

Step one

Begin by brushing your hair through to remove any tangles. This will make the styling process a whole lot easier, trust us.

Step two

Next, use a tail comb to trace a line along one side of your head, just like you would do for an extreme side part. Then, separate the smaller side section of hair from the rest. Once you've done that, clip the larger part out of the way while you style the side section.

Step three

Starting at the top of your head, you need to create a rolled twist with the smaller side section. To do this, spray first with Bold Control Hairspray, paying particular attention to the roots and then simply roll your hair inwards with your fingers to create a mini French twist. Work from top to bottom and add in more hair as your work/roll your way down.

Step four

Once you reach the nape of your neck, use bobby pins to secure the twist and let down the larger section of hair that you clipped up earlier.

Step five

Gather the loose hair with the ends of the French twist and secure into a low ponytail using a hair elastic. Spray once more to fix the style and you're good to go.

Happy styling!
