The French twist is an elegant hairstyle that you can make as sleek or as messy as you wish. For a lustrous look, use a smoothing serum to tame unruly locks and finish with a strong hairspray that will keep it all in place. If you want a more edgy, casual twist, use a volumizing spray before you blow dry and curl your hair; then twist the style in place. Before applying hairspray to the finished product, you can use your hands to tousle it to your liking. Charlene Wittstock, the Princess of Monaco, sported this fabulous hairstyle at her 2011 wedding to Prince Albert II.
