This Party Updo Is Not Your Mother's French Twist

We've said it before, and we'll say it again: When it comes to beauty, the French can do no wrong. So, it's no surprise that our favorite updo boasts the Parisienne seal of approval — the French twist has long been our go-to for occasions where a ponytail just won't cut it.
But, as foolproof as the French twist may be, we decided to put our own special twist (sorry, had to) on this classic style. So, we put our A-team (a.k.a. hair pro Michael Duenas and our assistant beauty editor, Tara) on the case. Check out the très belle result above.
