Would you like to change up your go-to work hairstyle without making your morning routine longer and more complicated? If so, this sleek, side-parted pony could be perfect for you. It's polished, chic and has a seriously businesslike air about it.

With an elegant yet minimalist vibe, it won't distract from the task at hand, and it won't force you to compromise on style either. It's hard to believe we didn't fall in love with this hairstyle for those exact reasons until now!

Get the look

Step one
Starting with damp hair, apply a smoothing heat protectant such as L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream then blow-dry with a paddle brush.

Top tip - Use the concentrator attachment to focus the air in one place and keep frizz at bay.

Step two
Once dried, complete any final touch-ups with a flat iron. Once everything is totally straight, use a tail comb to part your hair on one side, using the arch of your brow as a guide.

Step three
Use a brush to smooth all of your hair into a low side pony and tie. Take a small piece of hair from the 'tail and wrap it around the elastic, then pin underneath to secure it.

Step four
Complete the look by giving it a glossy finish. Mist Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray all over and smooth down the top with the palm of your hand.

What do you think? Could this be your new power 'do?
