Frizz can be one of the most annoying things about summer hair styling but you can smooth all of that extra volume into submission with a low-shine updo. A headband also comes in handy for any especially stubbon frizz/hiding unwashed roots.

Fortunately, ultra-sleek hair - almost wet look but not quite - is a big summer trend this year so why not use it to your advantage?

With the tutorial below, you can create a frizz-proof hairstyle in a matter of minutes! So, what are you waiting for?

Step one

Before you begin, brush your hair through to remove any knots. This will make the whole styling process a lot easier than battling Rambo-style through a tangled hair forest.

Step two

Part your hair to one side with a fine-tooth comb for accuracy. Don't worry if you haven't had time to wash your hair or your roots look a bit greasy at this point, the following steps will ensure nobody notices!

Step three

Warm a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum then smooth it through your hair, focusing on the front. You want enough for a decent amount of hold but stop before it starts to look slick. Shape the hair so it sweeps across the top of your forehead then pin it by your ear.

Alternatively, section off the hair at the front and spray it liberally – like, really liberally – with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray then pin by your ear and smooth it down firmly with the palm of your hand.

Step four

Gather your hair back into a chignon, French twist, bun... whatever you like as long as it's all up then mist all over with Bold Control Hairspray.

Step five

Put a headband on and you're all set!
