Katy Perry's Fluffy French Twist
Katy Perry went way beyond the classic French twist with this sky-high version complete with iridescent ribbon accent. To recreate her look, we'll follow the standard steps and simply include a lot more backcombing. Begin the backcombing process and concentrate your efforts throughout the crown. It's also helpful to use a product like L'Oreal Studio Line Unkempt, Out of Bed Weightless Texturizer, Texture and Control to add some extra hold. When you've added a sufficient amount of tangle, sweep tresses away from the face (maintaining as much volume as possible) and to one side. While holding the hair with one hand, use the other hand to insert bobby pins in a vertical line from the nape of the neck to the crown. Then, using a lot of tension, twist hair vertically over the bobby pins. Once the twist has been created, insert bobby pins or u-shaped hair pins horizontally and close to the scalp. Loose ends at the top of the twist can be tucked and pinned into place. Finish the style with lots of maximum hold hairspray.
