Eva Longoria is always a joy to watch on the red carpet, and at this year's Cannes Film Festival, she didn't disappoint! The L'Oréal Paris spokesperson's messy chignon updo was like something out of a fairytale, and it's a totally real-world appropriate look.

So, if you're in need of a new updo, or just want to inject some A-list glamor into your hairstyle arsenal, try the tutorial below!

How to style it

Step 1

Spritz towel dried hair with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Quick Dry Primer Spray then rough dry your mane until it's only slightly damp.

Step 2

Apply Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Thermal Smoother Cream through the lengths and continue the blowout using a round brush to add movement.

Step 3

Once dried, use a 1" curling iron to create some extra waves. If you don't feel super confident with a round brush, skip it and do all the curling when your hair is totally dry.

Step 4

Spritz the roots on top of your head with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Lift the hair up with your hands, then tease it from behind with a fine-tooth comb to add volume.

Step 5

Loosely gather your hair at the back, leaving some tendrils loose at the front. Tie your hair into a ponytail just below the crown of your head.

Step 6

Messily twist and pin the pony to the back of your head to create a disheveled bun. Then, to finish, complete the look with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray for long lasting, humidity resistant hold.
