30 minutes to… perfect hair
CURL IT If you have straight hair, an easy way to change your look is by using a large tong like Nicky Clarke Supershine Styling Tong (£44.99) to create a loose sexy style. Simply take random sections and wrap your hair around the tongs. Hold for a couple of seconds and release.
CRIMP IT ‘Crimping is a session stylist’s secret for creating volume,’ says stylist Adam Reed. ‘Bring the trend up to date by crimping different sections of hair for a dual-texture effect.’ Try the new GHD Contour (£95) for fabulous body.
VA-VA-VOOM IT Rollers are always useful if you want quick volume. Simply set your hair with large Velcro ones, spritz with hairspray, use the hairdryer on them for a minute, and then leave as long as you can. Or use heated rollers, such as T3 Volumising Hot Rollers Luxe (£115, lookfantastic.com).
UP IT For a classic chignon, apply a styling
spray, such as
Andrew Barton Volumising Texture Spray (£4.50, Asda), to dry hair. Smooth it back and sweep it into a ponytail at the nape of the neck. Twist the hair around an elastic in a figure-of-eight shape to create a neat bun. Fasten with grips and then pull out a few strands to soften the look.
