Step One:

Prep is key if you want waves that defy gravity! Grab the Mark Hill Does My Hair Look Big In This? Power Hold Mousse, £5.99 and rake a ball through your lengths, starting from the middle right down to the ends. Avoid the roots to counteract a halo of unsightly frizz.

Step Two:

Once your locks have been given a once over with the styling mousse, land your hands on a pair of curling tongs (we love Argan Oil infused gems like Trevor Sorbie's 32mm hair tong, £49.99 for extra shine) and wrap sections around the barrel, holding for a total of ten seconds.

Step Three:

Release the section from the wand, and whilst it is still warm, twist using your fingers and secure at the crown using the Boots Essentials Large Sectioning Clips. If your hair is on the thicker side, you may need a few packs, but at a purse-friendly £3.49, there's no going wrong.

Just make sure that every curled section is pinned to your head after tonging so your waves keep their shape and body.

Step Four:

Once each section has cooled down, release them from the clips and every so gently run your hands through your mane for extra volume. We love dusting the VO5 Texture Powder, £4.19 into the roots using our fingers for even more va va voom.
