Which hairstyle do you prefer from Natasha Poly?

L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Natasha Poly is an internationally renowned model by trade so it should come as no surprise to see her rocking gorgeous hairstyle after gorgeous hairstyle at the Cannes Film Festival. That said, it's hard not to be impressed...

Two of our favorite Cannes looks from the blonde beauty are a chic chignon and an ultra-sleek ponytail. The question is, which hairstyle do you like better?

Elegant updo

A sophisticated chignon is a style that's guaranteed to work for any formal event. Black tie, white tie, no tie... it's a safe bet. As Natasha proved on the red carpet in Cannes, it really is a winning look. Sometimes, simple really is best!

Get the look: If you want to try this hairstyle, the good news is that it's really easy, despite what the end result may suggest. Flat iron the hair after applying Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray the part your hair down the middle. Gather it all back into a low pony then pin all of the hair up in smaller sections to form the chignon. Finish with a mist of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray, smoothing down any flyaways on the top of your head.

Glamorous classic

While a lot of us put our hair up into a ponytail for a workout, doing laundry or anything where practicality comes first, it's worth remembering that it can also a gorgeous – not to mention glamorous – night out hairstyle. Natasha's pony was a great match for her emerald gown and let her intense eye makeup really take center stage.

Get the look: As with the chignon, start by straightening your hair then brush it all back into a high pony. Take a section of loose hair and wrap it around the hair tie, pinning it underneath to secure it. Spray some Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray into the palm of your hand and smooth it firmly over the tops and sides of your head to tame flyaways. Spray the whole style for long-lasting hold and you're done!
