Choosing the perfect hairstyle to go with a party dress, or more specifically a cocktail dress, can be a little daunting. There are just so many options to choose from and only a finite amount of time you can spend browsing on Pinterest after all! Fortunately, there is one style that looks good with any and every outfit while doing a great job of showcasing any jewelry you may be wearing. Introducing the sleek low bun. As seen on L'Oréal Paris spokesperson Sonam Kapoor during India National Jewellery Week on July 16, this style is a real classic!

To try this style on your own locks, all you have to do is follow the easy tutorial below...

Step one

Spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray by L'Oréal Paris and flat iron in sections, working from the bottom up.

Step two

Use a tail comb to accurately part your hair deep on one side. Choose whichever one feels most natural.

Step three

Smooth all of your hair back into a low pony. Use a brush to eliminate any bumps and secure at the nape of your neck.

Step four

Wind your ponytail into a bun and pin it into place. If you want a bigger bun, tease the hair before you wind it up.

Step five

Spray some Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Conrol Hairspray onto the palm of your hand then run it firmly over the top and sides of your head. Repeat as necessary until you have a noticeable sheen. Then, spray your style liberally all over and you're all set!

Et voilà, a party-ready hairstyle that you can wear with pretty much anything! You're welcome.
