Jennifer Lopez at Paris Fashion Week, July 6, 2014

Glam gal and L'Oreal Paris brand ambassador Jennifer Lopez sizzled at the Versace Atelier Autumn-Winter 2014/2015 presentation on July 6, during Paris Fashion Week. J Lo looked pretty far from "the block" when she stepped out of a black town car in Paris this week wearing a very fashion forward white ensemble, which she paired with a bronzed beauty look and sleek ponytail. The sultry, high-style look was a true Versace original!

You might not be able to get yourself a sequin-embellished dress/pant combo like Jenn's, but you can copy a few key parts of her look... mainly her ultra-chic ponytail! It's a style that's great to have in rotation as it can really work for day or night, which makes going from the office to a date totally doable. So, want to get the look? Here's how...

A super sleek style

Step one: Achieving sleek, smooth hair requires moisture to cancel out breakage and/or flyaways. Start by adding in a weekly hair mask to your regular haircare routine. Once you've rinsed out your hair mask and washed/conditioned as usual, towel-dry your hair.

Step two: Spritz heat protection throughout your lengths, focusing on the ends. Then, either let your hair air dry (to reduce heat styling) or rough dry your hair with a blow dryer.

Step three: Spray with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray and use a flat iron to smooth your locks. Divide the hair into 2-3 sections and work from the bottom up. Once you've straightened all of your hair, spray your brush with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and then use it to smooth the hair into a ponytail. Secure it with a hair tie.

Step four: If you need to, apply a small amount of smoothing serum to the ends of your ponytail to smooth them out and boost shine. And there you go!
