There are few styles more classic or swanky than a French twist, but sometimes its inherent polish can feel too formal. This clever adaptation keeps the grace and beauty of a pleat but adds a casual element by leaving ends loose. This dressed up ponytail is perfect for a casual wedding or a night on the town.
