When there's no time to wash your hair, you need a chic hairstyle that's easy to style and great at hiding any telltale signs of greasiness. Luckily, a sleek, low knot is both of those things, and it looks great with accessories, too!

To find out how to get the look, follow the tutorial below.

How to style it

Step 1
Starting with dry hair, spray the roots with Advanced Hairstyle BLOW DRY IT Longwear Spray and brush it through. The dry shampoo formula will absorb any excess oil.

Step 2
Part your hair in the middle using a tail comb for accuracy, then comb the hair through on either side to fix the part in place.

Step 3
Spritz your hair with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Iron Straight Heatspray and straighten your hair in sections.

Step 4
After straightening, mist your hair all over with Advanced Hairstyle SLEEK IT Strand Smoother Serum Spray to add shine and tame any unwanted flyaways.

Step 5
Gather your hair at the back and tightly twist it into a low knot. Secure with bobby pins.

Step 6
Complete the look with a final mist of Strand Smoother Serum Spray and you're all set!

For an ultra-glossy finish, take a small amount of Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Clean Style Gel and smooth it over the top and sides of your head. Just take care not to use too much or you may end up with a style that's a little too slick.
