7. Fix Any Bad Hair Day With This French Twist Updo Hairstyle

Bad hair days are a thing. For me, every time I wash my hair and go to sleep without blowing it dry first is the ultimate nightmare.

The only way to fix it without going under the shower again is to make one of those fun updo hairstyles where you can have your hair messy and still get it to look great. Here’s one of my favorite.

A french twist is super easy, especially when you use hair sticks instead of multiple bobby pins to secure it.

Here’s what you need to do:

  1. Pull your hair into a low ponytail
  2. Twist down, then up into a pleat (like a French roll)
  3. Tuck the end of your hair inside the pleat
  4. Push hair stick through to secure the roll. I have used two crossed over as this holds better.

You can make a variation of this hairdo if you have a bit more time. Try adding a braid to your hairstyle. Decorate with pins and enjoy your beautiful look!
