Get the look

Step one
Smooth, frizz-free hair starts with healthy, hydrated strands. This means conditioning your hair after every shampoo and treating your locks to a weekly deep conditioning mask. Not only does this help to lock in moisture and replenish lost nutrients, it also keeps your hair strong and maintains natural elasticity.

Step two
After towel-drying, apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray then blow-dry using a paddle brush. Once dried, use a flat iron to smooth out any remaining bumps.

Step three
Section off a medium-sized piece of hair on either side of your head and clip both up out of the way. Gather the rest of your hair into a low ponytail and tie.

Step four
Let down the sectioned off hair. Take one side and smooth it back towards the pony, then wind the ends around the elastic and pin. Do the same on the other side, winding the hair around in the opposite direction.

Step five
Spray your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray. This will add shine and keep frizz and flyaways at bay.

That's it!
