Sometimes, the simplest hairstyles are the most effective

Sometimes, it's good to strip things back to basics, especially where hairstyles are concerned. With so many choices, it's all too easy to forget just how good a simple, straight style can look... and how mercifully easy it is compared to a braided updos, vintage curls and the like!

The crisp lines make it obvious that some modicum of effort was made, creating a style that can be dressed up or down as needed. As for work, so for happy hour...

1/ Master perfectly straight locks

Step one
Starting with freshly washed, towel-dried hair, apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly throughout. Blow-dry with the concentrator attachment, using a paddle brush to guide the hair straight.

Step two
Part your hair wherever you like best, using a tail comb for accuracy. Then, touch up any areas that aren't quite straight enough with a flat iron. When straightening your hair, you should get the bulk of the work done with your dryer then use your flat iron as a finishing tool.

Step three
To give your style some extra gloss, spray it all over with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray. This will instantly tame any frizz and flyaways, and add shine throughout.
