If anyone gives us major hair envy, it's Michelle Keegan - FACT.

The former Corrie star is famed for her voluminous tresses and gravity defying waves so you'd be forgiven for thinking she has her glam squad on speed dial, even when she's just nipping out to the shops.

Que our excitement when the star revealed that more often than not, she tends to her bouncy 'do herself - and uses just a handful of pocket-friendly beauty buys to hone her home blowdrying skills.

Mich recently mentioned that she is a huge fan of the Beauty Works Bristle Blow Dry Brush, £17.99 to tease her tresses into waves after a good condition courtesy of the Maria Nila Pure Volume Conditioner, £15.99 - and her Instagram ready look couldn't be simpler to recreate.

Make sure you start with wet hair and spray the Mark Hill Big Blow Volume Spray, £5.99 into the roots and and the lengths for texture and extra va va voom, but give the ends a miss.

Using Michelle's magic brush, scrape sections of your hair backwards. Then simply use the centre bristles to pull your hair upwards at the roots and blast with a medium-to-high heat for a maximum of three seconds.

It's best to start from the sides and work your way towards the centre, clipping hair into sections if easier for you. This method is far healthier for creating volume at the roots than backcombing which only shreds the hair follicle. Ouch!

Tip your head forwards and rough dry the rest of your hair but make sure the ends are still a little damp. For Michelle's effortless waves, wrap the ends round the barrel of the brush, continuing to curl them forwards and blast with air from your dryer til the moisture disappears.

Don't look to serums or oils to finish the look as they'll only reverse the height or flatten out your waves. Instead, opt for a veil of the Lee Stafford Fat Flexible Hold Hairspray £6.49 to tame strays and to keep your 'do in tact.
