Get the look

Step one
Starting with damp hair, apply a straightening cream evenly throughout. Use a comb to ensure good coverage from roots to ends.

Step two
Blow-dry your hair in sections - top, middle and nape - using the concentrator attachment to minimize frizz. To guide the hair straight, a paddle brush is best as it lays the hair out flat. Don't worry if your hair doesn't end up perfectly poker-like, you just want your hair to be straight-ish.

Step three
Once everything is completely dry, brush your hair through to smooth it, then soothe any remaining frizz and flyaways with a serum. You can also use a hair oil to add shine and keep your ends nourished before moving onto the next step.

Step four
Loosely section off the top layers of your hair, leaving the bulk of it loose underneath. Split the sectioned hair into two halves, twist them a little, then tie them in a knot approximately an inch above the nape of your neck.

Step five
Secure the knot with a bobby pin, then complete the look with a generous mist of finishing spray. That's it!
