What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse
Wide-tooth comb
Barrel brush
Large-barrel curling iron
Advanced Haistyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray
Bobby pins
Hair elastic

Step one: Starting with damp hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse evenly throughout. Run a wide-tooth comb through to ensure even distribution.

Step two: Blow-dry using a barrel brush or allow your hair to air dry if you have enough time.

Step three: Divide your hair into four sections: two large side sections, the front section (for the pomp) and a back section.

Step four: Curl the side sections of hair using a large-barrel curling iron. Roll the hair upwards and secure with a couple of bobby pins. Spray generously with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray and smooth the sides upwards with the palm of your hand to tame flyaways. Repeat on the other side.

Step five: Curl the front section of hair in towards your face. Brush it through gently for added volume, then curl it in towards your forehead and secure with bobby pins. Spray generously with Bold Control Hairspray for long-lasting hold.

Step six: Gather the rest of your hair back into a low pony at the nape of your neck. Respray with Bold Control Hairspray and you're good to go!
