Do you ever wish you could make your hair look elegant without spending a lot of time styling it? Well, we're here to tell you that you can. All you need to do is master this simple deconstructed chignon, throw on your favorite party dress and go!

How to style it

Step 1
If you plan on washing your hair before styling your hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream after towel-drying, then blow-dry with the concentrator attachment. Use a paddle brush to guide the hair straight, and make sure to keep the airflow pointed downward.

Step 2
Once dried, brush your hair through to smooth it, then mist it all over with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to add shine and tame any flyaways. You should do this if you're starting with dry hair, too.

Step 3
Part your hair in the middle using a tail comb for accuracy.

Step 4
Gather your hair back as if creating a low ponytail, then tie it into a messy bun with a hair elastic.

Step 5
Pull the bun out a little bit so it's hanging slightly loose from the back of your head, then secure it to the nape of your neck with bobby pins.

Step 6
Tease a few small pieces of hair loose at the front to soften the look and frame your face, then finish with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray. For some extra sparkle, embellish your bun with a cute barrette or clip when you're done.

That's it!
