How to do a FRENCH ROLL

I am sure, just like myself, you all loved the latest up-do showcased in the Louis Vuitton parade. Here is the how to and pro tips for the French Roll from Marie Claire. I adored the addition of an exquisite and delicate headbands. So elegant, so poised!

1. Apply a body-building cream to damp hair and roughly blow-dry.
2. Spritz on a texturising lotion and scrunch it through your lengths to add bulk.3. Gather your hair at the nape of the neck and twist it, so you’re encouraging the ends upwards as hair rolls onto itself. The key is to keep the shape loose, but secured firmly with lots of pins in a vertical line down the back of your head.
4. Finish with a generous mist of flexible hairspray.

You’ll need: Redken Aerate 08 All-Over Bodifying Cream-Mousse, $28.95, Style Connection Wool Shake 08 Gel-Slush Texturizer, $36.95, and Hairsprays Fashion Work 12, $26.95.
Tip: “At Louis Vuitton, we did a more informal French roll,” says Guido Palau. “The hair was pulled back in a less severe way, with loose strands at the hairline, and the ends were left out of the twist. This gave it an edgy feel.”
