After stumbling upon this romantic long style during Paris Couture Fashion Week SS14, we fell a little bit in love with it and decided it might be the best thing since... a bunch of other stuff we saw at Fashion Week. Seriously though, it's a great look and everyone should try it.

The retro silhouette and overall simplicity of this 'do make it perfect for all kinds of occasions such as date night, a night on the town, a party or even a wedding. And that's not all it can do! It also happens to be a lovely style that could bring extra femininity to workday attire, too.

The real beauty of this look, however, lies in the fact it's just so east to achieve. Only marginally more complicated than a ponytail (honestly), you'll be wondering why you never tried it before.

You need:

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

Step one

Apply a generous amount of Iron Straight Heatspray and then run a flat iron through your hair to give it a smooth, sleek texture.

(FYI, if you don't know why heat protectants like this are necessary, we have all the info you need over here.)

Step two

Take a tail comb and define a center or slightly off-center part.

Step three

Next, you need to take a section of hair from the front and twist it in towards the back of your head. Once you've pulled the twist an inch or so past your ear, secure using a bobby pin. Repeat on the other side.

Top tip: For bigger, more noticeable twists, use larger sections of hair.

Step four

Finish with a generous amount of Bold Control Hairspray and you're done!

That's it, this style really is as easy as we promised.
Happy styling!
