A staple of every runway-ready look: dry shampoo!

Step 1: Refresh your hair with dry shampoo.

Spray the TRESemmé Fresh Start Basic Care Dry Shampoo through to refresh your hair. This also allows you to start off with a clean base before you create this runway hairstyle.

Step 2: Section your hair off and create a ponytail.

Part your hair down the middle and section it off so that there’s one small section on each side of your head and one low down in the back. Create a low ponytail using the small section in the back and secure it with a hair tie. Clip the front sections out of your way so that you can create a streamlined ponytail with ease.

Step 3: Twist the side sections.

Create this style’s signature attention to detail by twisting the front sections away from your face. Twist them until they’ve reached the ponytail and pin them into place at the base of the style.

Step 4: Create the bun.

Section the ponytail into two separate pieces and twist them around each other. When you’ve reached the end of your hair wrap the ponytail up and around itself to create a bun. Pin that into place.
