Karlie Kloss rocked up to the PEOPLE Magazine Awards 2014 on December 18 with the perfect party hairstyle: a textured chignon. The updo did a great job of showcasing her minimalist makeup look and bare shoulders, and we recommend you try something similar for your next night out!

Find out how to recreate Karlie's look with the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
If you don't have time to wash your hair, don't worry because this style works well with unwashed locks. Start by brushing your hair back off your face, then spray it with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray.

Step 2
Use your fingertips to muss the hair on top to create a disheveled, more voluminous look.

Step 3
Pin the top layers back, taking care not to crush or smooth the texture you just whipped up.

Step 4
Twist the rest of your hair into a chignon and position it over the top of the pins you used in step three.

Step 5
Gently tease a piece of hair loose on either side of your face to soften the look. If you want to loosen the hair on top, slide your fingers under the hair and slowly lift it.

Step 6
Complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray to keep frizz at bay and give your style long-lasting hold. All set!
