When Jennifer Lopez appeared on Despierta America on January 13, 2015, her no fuss hairstyle couldn't have been more different from the glamorous, voluminous waves that she rocked at this year's Golden Globes. The actress, who is busy promoting her new movie The Boy Next Door, styled her honey toned locks into this wonderfully chic chignon. Simple yet classic, this look will take you from the gym to the office in style, so it's well worth adding it to your repertoire!

This style looks great with a sleek and straight finish, so use a moisturizing shampoo and conditioner and treat your locks to regular conditioning hair masks. Top tip: rough dry your hair with an old jersey T-shirt instead of a towel for a guaranteed silky smooth finish!
Choose a straightening product with heat protect ingredients and work it throughout the lengths of your hair, before combing it through to ensure an even distribution.
Blow-dry your hair, working a paddle brush down as you go.
Smooth a little straightening cream through your mid-lengths and ends, then brush the hair back away from your face and fix it in a high ponytail.
Twist the tail section of the ponytail around the hair elastic so that it forms a topknot, then pin in place with hair clips or bobby pins.
Smooth a little gel over the sides of your hair to banish flyaways, then mist strong hold hairspray over your new look to give it some long lasting hold.
Go and show off your effortlessly elegant topknot!
