Volumized roots and smooth, swept-over bangs give Charlize Theron's sleek updo a hint of casual sexiness.
Step 1: Mix a nickel-size amount of straightening cream along with a few drops of shine serum and apply onto damp hair. Use the flat edge of a paddle brush to blow dry two-inch sections while pulling hair straight with each stroke.
Step 2: Once dry, run a flat iron over half-inch sections for extra-sleek results.
Step 3: Leaving a few layers out in front, use a natural bristle brush and smooth your strands as you gather them in back. Twist the length until it buckles into a messy bun. Tuck the ends in and pin securely into place.
