Blow-dry your hair using a soft-bristle brush. As you’re drying, brush the hair away from your hairline. Create a deep parting on one side, then spray your favourite hairspray on your hands and smooth over to flatten any flyaways.
For the next part of this easy hairstyle, sweep back your hair into a low ponytail at the nape of your neck, leaving a small section of hair above each ear free. Tie up the ponytail securely.
Divide your ponytail into two pieces, and then tie them into a knot around the base of your ponytail. Pin the rest of your hair around the knot in a bun-like style to secure.
For the final step of this oh-so-easy hairstyle, pull the loose sections of hair that you left out from the front across your ears and pin them into the bun. Finish off with a spritz of hairspray to make sure everything stays in place.
Your simple, chic and incredibly easy hairstyle is done! Could that have been any easier? Now off you go; you’ve got people to see and things to do!
