Lily James wowed with a sleek look at the premiere of Cinderella in London. 

Step one:

Before styling, you need to prep your hair. This style works best on clean hair, so get your locks ready by washing them with Charles Worthington Shine Booster Shampoo, and finish off with conditioner to get a glossy look.

Step two:

Towel dry your hair thoroughly and then apply a smoothing serum through your locks to recreate Lily's poker-straight style.

Step three:

This look works best with a centre parting, so create a clean line by using a comb. Next, blow dry your hair straight, brushing through with a paddle brush for maximum effect.

Step four:

Apply a heat-protective spray to your tresses to avoid damaging them, and retain their gloss. Then, use a flat iron to straighten your hair. Work your way down from the top of your roots to the tips of your hair to avoid any flyaways, for the edgy polished look which Lily rocked on the red carpet.

Step five:

Set the hair in place with a hairspray such as the Charles Worthington Style Setter Brush Out Hairspray. Spritz the product onto the paddle brush and then brush through the hair, tucking it behind your ears as you go.

Step six:

For the ultimate glossy finish, complete your look with a fine mist of Charles Worthington Shine Booster All Over Gloss Spray.
