1. Start with clean hair, shampoo and condition your hair and towel-dry. Apply a treatment or oil to help detangle and smooth the hair surface – go for one that will also help protect against heat damage.
2. If you have naturally wavy or curly hair, spritz with a sea salt spray or spray gel to help set your natural curls.
3. For straight or fine hair, comb a large dollop of volumising mousse through wet hair.
4. Remove any excess moisture with a blow dryer before you start the styling process. To get more volume, flip your head upside down and scrunch with your hands.
5. Once excess moisture is removed, use a small round brush, blow dry sections of hair and roll the brush away from your face. If your hair is long, first divide it into four sections from ear to ear and straight down the centre, securing each section with a clip. Then complete the blow dry one section at a time. Tip: start at the nape or underneath section of your hair and direct the nozzle of your hairdryer directly down the hair shaft so the air is blowing along the mesh of hair. This will make the cuticle layer sit flat and reduce fly-aways.
6. Now use a curling iron, the size of the curl/wave will depend on the width of the curling iron. Wrap 1-2 inch sections of hair from mid-shafts to ends only (leave the roots straight). Curl random sections of hair in different directions to create a more haphazard, rough texture.
7. Gently tousle your hair with your hands or a paddle brush to break up the curls.
8. Finally, finish with a spritz of lightweight hairspray all over your hair to hold it in place all day.
