STEP ONE

Wash your hair and while it’s still damp, spritz with a heat protector product like TRESemme protect heat defence styling spray. Apply a volumizing mousse like Bumble and Bumble thickening full form mousse to create hold and volume.

STEP TWO

Dry the hair with a paddle brush, brushing the hair in different directions. Once the hair is 70 per cent dry, section the hair into four with your preferred parting.

STEP THREE

Take a medium sized ceramic brush and starting at the nape, blow dry sections of hair no bigger than your brush. Focus on creating root lift and volume at the roots, yet a smooth and straight finish through the mid-lengths and ends.

STEP FOUR

When you’ve finished blow drying, take a vertical section starting at the hairline from the parting to the front of the ear. In a two inch section, curl the hair rotating the irons in a half rotation, curling away from the face. Continue taking vertical sections working your way towards the centre of the nape area. Begin on the opposite side of the head and repeat the process, curling away from the face.

STEP FIVE

To finish the look, use your paddle brush to brush out the curls and mess them up a bit with your fingertips. Finally set the style with a fine hold mist hairspray such as L’Oreal Ellnett extra strength hairspray.
