MODERN has the exclusive how-to on how to achieve this look using L’Oreal Professionnel products. Follow the steps below.

1. Prep hair with Dual Stylers Liss & Pump-Up and Tecni.Art Crépage de Chignon and power-dry.

2. On the right side of the head, create a C-shape parting from the high recession to the left nape of the neck to form two sections.

4. Smooth hair on the left side of the head and secure with a bungee.

5. In the ponytail, prep hair with True Grip and backcomb.

6. Spray Tecni.Art Next Day Hair and roll ponytail. Secure with hairpins and Tecni.Art Extreme Lacquer.
