If you want to try a fresh new look that is both pretty and practical, we have the perfect updo for you! This sleek, wavy hairstyle is easy to achieve, it works for most hair lengths, and the minimalist feel lends itself perfectly to statement makeup and wardrobe choices.

To find out how to recreate it, just follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
This updo is especially great because it works well with dirty hair. All you need to do before styling is some detangling with a paddle brush or wide-tooth comb and you're good to go.

Step 2
Use a tail comb to trace a deep side part, then comb the hair through on either side to fix it in place.

Step 3
Mist your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray and straighten it with a flat iron. At the front, twist the iron to create a big wave on the side of your part with the most hair, then brush it through.

Step 4
Arrange the wave so it curves over your forehead and out toward the side, then secure it behind your ear with a bobby pin.

Step 5
Gather the rest of your hair back into a bun or French twist, and secure with as many pins as you need. The exact amount all depends on how thick and long your hair is. If you have a fairly short haircut, you might find it easiest to twist and pin the hair up in small sections.

Step 6
Complete the look with a generous amount of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Fine Control Hairspray.
