Get the look
Starting with damp hair, apply L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Frizz Vanisher Cream evenly throughout and blow-dry with the concentrator attachment to minimize frizz. Use a paddle brush to straighten the hair as it dries.
Once dried, use a flat iron for any further straightening, then spray your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray. This will instantly add shine and tack down any rogue flyways.
Part your hair on one side with a tail comb, using the arch of your brow as a guide, then smooth your hair back in to a low ponytail.
Twist the pony into a bun shape and pin to secure it. For a more detailed look, you can braid the hair before securing it into a bun.
Complete the look with a veil of hairspray for added frizz control and long-lasting hold. That's it!
What do you think? Could this sleek chignon become your new go-to workday hairstyle?
