Hair DIY: Giuliana Rancic's Smoothed Chignon(Art by Tanya Leigh Washington)Want to know how to get a red carpet-worthy pony a la Giuliana Rancic? Michelle Dittrich will show you how in ten easy-to-follow steps. 

Steps (starting in the top left and working down)
1. Prepare damp hair with L'Oreal Paris BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse, applying throughout the hair for lift and hold.

2. Thoroughly massage product into hair, especially focusing on roots.

3. Using a comb, create a clean part and press comb from side to shaft, helping to smooth style into place.

4. Next, dry hair with the part in place. Ensure you divide hair into small sections, concentrating on drying from the roots for a longer lasting blowout.

5. Once hair is dry, smooth back behind ears. Hold in place with a bobby pin.

6. If your bangs are growing out, like Michelle's, add extra pins around the face and behind the ears, to give some extra hold.

7. Mist the pinned style with L'Oreal Sleek It Strand Smoother Spray.

8. At the nape of the neck, fasten hair with an elastic to create a low ponytail. Twist into a tiny knot or chignon.

9. Generously spray hair with L’Oreal Lock It Bold Control Hairspray.

10. For extra security add more bobby pins or a second elastic. Otherwise, you're red carpet ready!
