French Twist Trend For Fall 2012

Trend Alert: Come on Baby, Do the (French) Twist

What do stars like Katy Perry, Amber Heard, and Rihanna have in common? They're all fans of a no-fail, classic coiffure: the French twist. And they're not alone in their updo choices. At Fall 2012 New York Fashion Week, several designers, including Naeem Khan, Thakoon, Rachel Comey, and Lela Rose, all featured the elegant look in their collections. Each version was gorgeous, and thanks to the talented hands of the stylists who created them, had its own unique spin.

At Naeem Khan (upper left) and Rachel Comey (lower left), flirty eyeliner played well with these twists. But for the former, Bumble and bumble's Laurent Philippon opted for a "slouchy" style, making sure the tousled look wasn't too "hairdresser-y," and for the latter, models' looks were similar, but finished with a more polished touch. As for Thakoon (upper right), Kérastase's Odile Gilbert looked to Audrey Hepburn for inspiration, creating a style that incorporated faux bangs in the front. And at Lela Rose (bottom right), celebrity stylist Ted Gibson also toyed around with fringe-line detailing, forming an eye-catching roll off to the side. What's not to love? So come on little miss . . . and do the twist.
