Choosing a hairstyle for a special occasion can seem difficult, especially if that occasion happens to be the most glamorous film festival on the planet. Natasha Poly, however, proved that a sleek updo can be the perfect solution when she appeared on the red carpet at the 67th Cannes Film Festival with a simple chignon.

Parted right down the middle then arranged elegantly at the nape of her neck, this style was sophisticated without appearing over-styled.

If you would like to try it on your own hair, the tutorial below might help...

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray
Flat iron
Tail comb
Hair tie
Bobby pins
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: Apply Iron Straight Heatspray evenly through dry hair and flat iron. Glide the iron through your hair without dragging it. The spray will act as a heat protectant while simultaneously helping to prevent frizz and flyaways. Alternatively, spray damp hair then blow-dry with a paddle brush.

Step two: Use a tail comb to accurately part your hair in the middle then gather everything back into a low pony at the nape of your neck.

Step three: Take sections of hair from the pony and loosely twist them before pinning them up. Keep going until all of the hair has been pinned.

Step four: Spray some Bold Control Hairspray onto the palm of your hand then smooth it firmly over the top and sides of your head. This will eliminate any remaining flyaways and prevent any more from forming.

Step five: Mist the whole style with Bold Control Hairspray and you're done!

Happy styling!
