How To DIY Oscar de la Renta’s Modern French Twist

DIY Oscar de la Renta’s Modern French Twist As Seen At NY Fashion Week Fall/Winter 2015

Designer: Oscar de la Renta

Lead Hair Stylist: Guido, Redken Global Creative Director

The Scoop: Redken Global Creative Director Guido created a modern touch on the classic French twist that combined elegance with ease. “The look at Oscar de la Renta this season is very elegant and classic – very uptown chic. Though the finished look is very done, there’s a sense of ease to it. There’s the lines that I created by raking my fingers through the hair to pull it back into the French twist, and the shine that I added… The key here is to secure the French twist at the back of the neck, making sure it’s flat and tight against the head, which creates a super beautiful profile.”

How To DIY A Modern French Twist

  1. Apply a quarter-size amount of Redken Stay High 18 high-hold gel to mousse to damp hair and blow dry.
  2. Gather hair and rake with fingers to create comb marks, and then pull up into a French twist. Be sure the base of the twist is tight and flat against the head.
  3. Secure the French twist by pinning with open fasteners.
  4. Finish with a thorough spray of Redken Forceful 23 super strength hairspray for hold and lightly mist Redken Diamond Oil High Shine Airy Mist all over for added shine.
