Getting the perfect chignon isn't so hard after all!

There are many kinds of updo, ranging from intricate braids to sleek low ballerina buns. Somewhere in the middle lies this artfully pinned arrangement with its elegant sheen and subtle details. It's pretty, chic and – more importantly – easy to imitate.

If you're looking for a hairstyle that looks good and keeps your hair under control, look no further...

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray
Flat iron
Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand-Smoother Serum Spray
Hair tie
Bobby pins
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: Spray your hair evenly from root to tip with Iron Straight Heatspray and flat iron in sections. Start with the bottom layers and work your way up.

Step two: Brush the hair through and mist with Strand-Smoother Serum Spray. This will give your hair an instantly sleek, smooth finish that will give your locks the same understated shine you can see on the model.

Step three: Gather your hair back into a low pony and secure with a hair tie. Use a brush to remove any bumps at the back.

Step four: Split the pony into two sections. Twist each one, then wind them around each other and secure with plenty of bobby pins. Use pins that contrast with your natural hair color, and for more detail, tie a hair elastic around each twist, crossing it over at random down the lengths.

Step five: Tease a few strands loose at the front to frame your face, and finish with a mist of Bold Control Hairspray to keep everything in place.

Happy styling!
