Top 5 French Twist Braid Ideas For 2024

A French twist braid hairstyle is not only a hairstyle that you will fall in love with the second you try it out, but it also comes in a number of different variations, which makes it a lot easier to adapt to your own personal taste.

1. Spiral French Twist

This French twist braid is so fun and original, and also a great alternative to a classic French braid. It emphasizes highlights, with the different shades of your hair intertwining so beautifully in it.

Ideal for: Round and square-shaped faces.

How to Style: Comb your hair out completely and section it out. Twist the sections and intertwine them to form a twisted braid.

Secure it with an elastic band on the nape of the neck. Style the low ponytail by either curling it slightly or leaving it straight and spray the braid with some hairspray.


2. Loose Braided Ponytail

If you have long hair that is not too silky and soft, and you want to achieve a more romantic hairstyle that will make you look like a princess, just try a looser version of the previous hairstyle that includes only three sections.

Ideal for: Square and heart-shaped faces.

How to Style: Repeat the process of the second hairstyle, but don’t tighten it up. Don’t forget to secure everything with a generous amount of hairspray.


3. Double Diagonal Braid

A French twist doesn’t always come in the form of a bun, but it also frequently appears in the form of beautiful braids. This diagonal twisted French braid is great if you like braiding and experimenting with your hair.

Ideal for: Round and square-shaped faces.

How to Style: Comb your hair and part it on the side. Start making a twist braid on that side towards the back and to the opposite side and secure it with bobby pins.

Parallel to that braid, braid a Dutch braid, finishing it off with a regular low braid on the side.


4. French Twist Braid with Bun

If you have a little bit of extra time to do your hair, try creating this French twist braid that looks so elegant and refined, and yet has a subtle, romantic detail that will make the whole hairstyle stand out.

Ideal for: Round and oval-shaped faces.

How to Style: When you have twisted your hair upward once, pin it with bobby pins and braid it downward, fixate everything with bobby pins and an elastic band at the end of the braid, and then tuck the end of the braid between the twist and the braid. Finish everything off with some hairspray.


A French twist with a braid is a perfect way to turn a stiff and almost boring classic French twist into an interesting, subtle, and romantic hairstyle that is appropriate for any age and any occasion.
