L'Oréal Paris spokesmodel Freida Pinto has been having a glamorous time of it at the Cannes Film Festival, not least because of her great hairstyle choices! While it's not always easy to combat frizz in warm weather conditions, the Slumdog Millionaire actress managed to do just that on the red carpet with a sleek ponytail. With a sharp side part and subtle wet-look sheen, it was the ultimate in chic night out hair. As such, we thought you might like to copy it...
What you need:
Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray
Advanced Hairstyle TXT IT Deconstructing Gum
Step one: Mist the hair evenly with Iron Straight Heatspray then flat iron it in sections. Start with the lower layers and work your way up. If you prefer, you can blow-dry with a paddle brush to create a straight texture.
Step two: Use a tail comb to part your hair on one side, in line with the arch of your eyebrow.
Step three: Smooth your hair back into a low pony at the nape of your neck. Make sure to secure it in the middle, not to one side.
Step four: Warm a very small amount of Deconstructing Gum then sweep it over the top and sides of your head to create a subtle sheen like Freida's, and you're done!
If your hair is really prone to frizz, you may also want to spray the lengths of the pony with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spay. This will give the hair a touchable, sleek finish while helping to prevent flyaways.
