A Festival-Ready Faux Hawk French Twist Hair Tutorial

For our second installment of festival hairstyles with Maritza Buelvas, we worked on FP Me Stylist MeganMoon. Megan has the most amazing head of hair, and we love how this style gives it a rocker girl edge. The look is perfect to keep the hair off your neck while you get down and dance to the music, especially if you’ll be under the hot desert sun this weekend! To give it that little something extra, Maritza added the Feather Bobby Pin Set from our Hair Shop. The detail adds just the right amount of intrigue and style to spice it up.


Step One: Grab the back of your hair and form a French twist.  Secure in place with hairpins and accent with Free People’s Feather Bobby Pin.


Step Two: Let the front hang free giving your look a faux hawk appeal!


Get the look: Hollywood Graphic Tee, Moon Beam Choker
