Description

Big, bold and blonde is the main idea for this look. The locks were set in rollers to enhance the body and volume, and to also encourage the bounce of the waves added to make this hairstyle as big as possible. This look is great for those looking for a style that will turn heads and will need plenty of hairspray or laquer for hold and shine.

Styling Steps

1. Apply Mousse

Mousse

Apply styling mousse to damp hair, using your palm as a measuring guide, and evenly distribute it along the hair shaft. Styling mousse will add hold and can help achieve better results.

2. Use a Blow-dryer and Fingers to Dry Hair Messy

Dryoffmessy

Using your blow-dryer, flip your head upside down and dry your hair using your fingers until your hair is completely dry. Remember, the messier, the better.

3. Use Large Hot Rollers

A large hot roller is used to give your hair a larger curl and to add lots of body.

4. Apply Hot Rollers on Top

Topbackroller

Take a section of hair from the front of your head no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller down the hair shaft until it meets the top of your head and then secure it in place with a pin or clip. Continue this step until a row of hot rollers has been applied along the very top of your head. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

5. Apply Hot Rollers Through the Back

Backdownroller

Take the entire back section of your hair, and then starting from the crown, take a smaller section of hair no wider than the diameter of the hot roller and comb it through to ensure there are no knots. Place the roller at the ends of the section of hair, being sure to smooth the ends under, and then twist the roller down the hair shaft until it meets your head and then secure it in place with a pin or clip. Repeat this step until you have reached the nape of your neck and the entire back section of your hair is completed. Keep the rollers in your hair until they cool.

6. Tease Hair

Tease

Pick up a small selection of hair from your mid section no bigger than your tail comb. Place your comb at the roots and then comb up and down until the hair is standing up by itself. Continue to the crown and finish at the sides. Repeat this step if you require more volume.

7. Piece the Ends Using Wax

Apply a small amount of wax to your fingertips and then lightly piece and pinch the ends of your hair.

8. Apply Lacquer

Lacquerfinishing

Lacquer is great for strong hold. A small amount is all that is required to finish and should be applied from an arms length distance to the entire style.
