classic French twist to help
make you the center of attention
S pring is that special time of the year when we feel
more conﬁdent and dramatic, attracting attention
and unveiling our glamorous natures. It’s a season
of proms, pageants and many other special occa-
sions, and it sure is the most appropriate time to
turn things up a notch, as well as bringing everybody’s at-
tention to your persona.
Main runway and fashion scenes will show us lots of up-
styles this spring season, such as French twists, knots,
braids, low or side ponytails, and while winter styles were
more polished and simple, this spring you will see more

PUMP IT UP
Separate the front hair from the back along the line that
goes from behind the ears through the highest point of your
head. Starting at the crown of your head, thoroughly tease
the top area by taking 1/2-inch slices, and spray each teased
section with medium hold hairspray. Continue to move for-
ward, either all the way to the front hairline to create a high
pompadour look, or leave 2-inches of hair at the front for
an elegant side swoop.
