With the Cannes Film Festival already in full swing in the South of France, some of our favourite international actors are hitting the red carpet with some serious style. French actress Lea Seydoux was wearing one of our favourite hairstyles – a refined bun, so we just had to recreate this look ourselves.
1. Start with hair that has been freshly washed and dried. For some added texture, use a volumising hair mousse or spray on damp hair.

2. Once hair is completely dry, apply a lightweight serum to the ends. Not only is this crucial for keeping the follicle healthy, but it will also make the hair look shiny.

3. Divide hair down the middle, then twist and pin into a bun. If your hair is thicker than usual, you might want to use a translucent hair elastic to keep it all in place. Then, just disguise it by pinning the shorter strands over the bun.
4. Set it all in place with a light finishing spray!
