1Sand­wich a towel around small sec­tions of damp hair, and squeeze. Be­sides ab­sorb­ing wa­ter, this roughs up the cu­ti­cles (hair’s cov­er­ing) so they don’t lie flat.

2After mas­sag­ing a dime­size dol­lop of mousse (try The Body Shop Guarana Berry Vo­lu­mis­ing Mousse) onto your scalp, blow-dry your roots while tug­ging them for added height.

3Clip up all hair but a 2-inch sec­tion. Hold a round brush un­der it and the dryer right above. Pull both tools down­wards si­mul­ta­ne­ously; twirl the brush at the ends to curl. Re­peat un­til that part is dry and smooth.

4Con­tinue this process un­til all your hair is dry. Now gather the strands above your ears and pull them to­ward the ceil­ing. Heat the roots for about 10 secs, then hold hair in place un­til it’s cool.

5 Push­strands to one side of your head, blow­ing the roots again; switch sides and re­peat. Now cre­ate your part, which will be full and fab­u­lous.
