Step 1: Gather Your Supplies

Before you get to work, you’ll need a brush, some bobby pins and a bit of hairspray (optional). You may also want to use a tail comb to help you part your hair.

Before starting on your French Roll, you’ll need to gather all your supplies.

Step 2: Brush Your Hair

Now it’s time to get your hair ready. Brush it out and make sure there aren’t any tangles or knots. Now you’re ready to start styling!

Step 3: Part Your Hair

Take your tail comb and part your hair down the middle. If you want to create a side part, part your hair slightly off to one side.

Step 4: Begin Roll at the Top

Put your brush under the top section of your hair and brush it up from your scalp. As you brush, create a twist. Keep brushing as you twist until you reach the crown of your head.

Step 5: Secure the Top

When you reach the crown of your head, hold the twist in place with one hand. With your other hand begin to pin the twist down with bobby pins. Do this until the twist is secure.

Step 6: Continue Rolling and Pinning

Continue rolling and pinning until you reach the nape of your neck. Make sure to secure each section with bobby pins. If you need to, use some hairspray. Just don’t use too much or it will look crunchy and unnatural.

Step 7: Finish it Off

Once you have rolled and pinned all the way to the nape of your neck, tuck the rest of your hair under the roll and secure with bobby pins. Give it a few spritzes of hairspray (optional) and you’re done!
