Love this “slightly punky” French Twist by Guido of Redken for Bottega Veneta’s Fall/Winter 2017 Milan Fashion Week Show.  The front, not shown, was a modern take on the 1940s – with a roll  – but the back of the French Twist is something else, with some pieces sticking out, just so, casual but not messy!  After making the French Twist, just “pull out a few pieces using fingers, allowing them to hang loosely for a soft, romantic feel,” advises Guido, who did the hair for most of the important fashion designer shows for Fall.  Full steps on helenoppenheim.com – click HERE
