A french twist is quite an elegant and simple hair style. To make a french twist you must start with hair length that is long enough to pull up into a pony tail with some length (at least three to four inches). The reason you need some length to your hair is that you will be need enough hair to fold to make the twist. Brush the tangles from your hair and pull together as if you were going to make a pony tail. Instead of making a pony tail you will take the ends of the hair you have in your hand and vertically begin rolling the ends towards the head. Take hair pins and place in the hair to hold the rolled hair in place.
