Bella Thorne is always nailing it in the style stakes and she sent the beauty sphere into overdrive when she stepped out with super-crimped hair last week!

Yep, that's right. It's time to embrace the frizz again.

The Duff actress unleashed her inner 80s chick at WonderCon 2016 on Saturday (25 March) and proved that crimped tresses in all their mussed up, zig-zag, voluminous glory are officially back with a bang for spring.

The stunning starlet - whose seamless, svelte, straight mane is often the root of all of our hair envy - decided to funk things up a little as she unearthed her crimping tools, scooped her locks up into a ponytail and went absolutely M-A-D.

But we have to admit, the look suits her a treat!

If you're a little to scared to dust off your old tongs, we don't blame you one bit. Thankfully, the hair maestros at BaByliss predicted the crimping trend would make a comeback and since Bella debuted her new wacky locks, and their 2165B Pro Hair Crimper (a steal at £19.99) has been selling fast!

Here's how to nab the look in five simple steps - without frazzling your ends. Or your fingers...

1. Bella's shaggy look will work much better on unwashed (no, we're not talking dirty) hair. A day or two after washing is best as you're more likely to achieve the messy texture without heaps and heaps of frizz. Add a touch of dry shampoo into the roots for a little more grip.

3. If you're feeling a little lazy, sweep your hair up into a ponytail, secure and begin crimping from the base right down to the ends. Clamp thin sections of hair between the plates for a total of ten seconds before releasing.

4. If you have thicker hair, you might find it easier to separate your ponytail into three larger sections using hair dividers.

5. Make sure the shape stays put for longer and give your 'do a good old spritz of hairspray. We adore L'Oreal's Studio Pro Lock It Hairspray, £4.49.
