30 min­utes to… per­fect hair

Prima (UK) - - Beautiful You -

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.
