Here’s the second of our four easy French girl ‘dos for
and how to get the look in less than 10 minutes

If  you want your hair to look chic and on point for your festive frivolities, New Year’s Eve parties and all the accompanying summer soirees, but you’re lacking #inspo? Our friends at Franck Provost have to the rescue with four ultra chic and simple hair styles that will take you everywhere this summer for the holiday season and beyond.

Here’s the second do: {first one here}

Before you start: If your hair is wavy, ensure you blowdry it straight and run an iron through it to get that sleek finish.

1. Add a smoothing cream such as L’Oréal Tecni.art Liss Unlimited and Liss Control Plus high gloss serum to damp hair. Blowdry with a boar bristle brush to create that super shiny finish. Don’t create volume, so keep your blowdrying in a downward direction. Direct hair away from the face and behind ears.

2. Create a middle part. Take a large section out on both sides from the start of the part to just behind the ears. Keep those partings very clean and clipped away for now.

3. With a Mason Pearson brush, start smoothing the rest of the hair into a low ponytail. Spray that first ponytail with L’Oréal Tecni.Art Air Fix hairspray to smooth all flyaways down.

4. Now get the left section you clipped away and smooth it out with a brush until it’s super sleek. Give the section a little spray with flexible hold hairspray. Remember, hairspray can make hairstyles look dull and stiff so avoid using a lot for this style.

5. Keeping the section very wide and flat, wrap it over the top of the ponytail and secure with pins as far under the ponytail as possible.

6. For the right section do the same. Smooth the hair out until it’s perfect and keep it very flat, then wrap over the top of the left side. Hold it there and then give it a little shot of hairspray.

7. Grab a blowdryer and diffuser on high heat and set the hair in the shape. The diffuser will stop all the wind of the blowdryer, but the heat will help to set the hair in this new shape.

8. Keeping the hair flat, use a very long bobby pin the secure underneath the ponytail. For extra hold, make sure the bobby pin goes through the elastic and up inside the ponytail.

9. Finish this look off with lots of L’Oréal Wet Domination shine spray for a super polished look, using a toothbrush around the hairline to smooth all those baby hairs.

10. Run the Liss Control serum down the length of the ponytail to keep out moisture and humidity.
