Freida Pinto is a red carpet regular who just loves a low chignon – see here and here for further details. As a result, the L'Oréal Paris spokesmodel is very adept at styling her hair just so for the most prestigious of events, like, say, the 100th Annual White House Correspondents' Association Dinner. No biggie...
For this star-studded event, the Slumdog Millionaire actress rocked up with a low chignon that was a little bit windswept and very elegant. In short, the perfect match for both her dress and the occasion.
Here in the real world, this is the kind of hairstyle that is totally ok for work with plenty of scope to dress things up a little for a night out, too.
What you need:

Flat iron (optional)
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray
Step one: Apply Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly through damp hair and blow-dry. Use a brush to guide the hair straight.
Step two: If you need to, use a flat iron to smooth over any especially stubborn areas.
Step three: Use a tail comb to part your hair in the middle or slightly off-center. Comb the hair through to fix the part.
Step four: Gather your hair back into a low pony. Before you tie it, gently tease a couple of wispy strands loose on either side of your face.
Step five: Split the pony in two and twist each half. Wind the two sections around each other to form a bun and pin.
Step six: Flatten any unwanted flyaways by spraying some Bold Control Hairspray onto the palm of your hand and smoothing it over the sides of your head.
Step seven: Mist all over with Bold Control Hairspray and use your fingertips to lightly smooth the wispy strands back away from your face.
