How to Get a Sleek Formal Style

One of the loveliest and freshest styles you can wear to a formal event is a sleek and simple style like the one Jamie Lynn Spears wore to the 2007 Kid's Choice Awards. This "Orange Carpet" style is never out of fashion as it highlights the best-ever fashion accessory, a fresh, pretty face. Just add some great earrings like Jamie Lynn, and you too can be Award Show ready in just minutes.

Simplicity is the key to this style. While the hair is slightly wet, apply setting lotion throughout. Then, using a fine tooth comb, part hair far over on one side and slick back gently from the face on the smaller side. On the other side, comb hair into place pulling down toward the ear before sliding to the back. Secure both sides together at the base of the skull using a non-damaging elastic.

Jamie Lynn's style is finished off by making a smooth and simple "bun" out of her ponytail. To accomplish this, pull a little hair out of the bottom before beginning. Then take the ponytail and pull through the elastic a second time, being careful not to pull all the way through. Pull from the underside so the ends are underneath. This will cause the hair to form a loose bun. Take the loose section of hair that you pulled out before and wrap it around the elastic so it doesn't show. Finally, pin any loose strands out of sight and finish off with a shine enhancing hair spray.

Don't forget, sleek styles that keep your hair close to your head show off your face. Don't try this style right in the middle of a major breakout or other complexion crisis.
