What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse
Bristle brush
Curling iron
Wide-tooth comb
Bobby pins
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: After washing and towel-drying your hair, scrunch some BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse evenly throughout. This will give your hair plenty of body and movement later on. Using a blow-dryer, rough-dry the hair and then brush it all through after parting it to one side.

Step two: Take a medium-barrel curling iron and make some waves randomly through your hair. Don't curl it all, just a few small sections here and there to create a slightly wavy, romantic texture; too many curls and the hair might appear over styled. Once you're done, run a wide-tooth comb through your hair to break the curls up so they look more natural, without compromising the relaxed texture.

Step three: To add a little extra volume at the crown of your head, gently tease the hair, misting with Bold Control Hairspray as you go for plenty of hold.

Step four: Lightly smooth over the teased hair and gather the hair back into a loose, low bun, and secure with bobby pins. Like Zoe, cover most of your ears – leaving your ear lobes/earrings visible – when your pull your hair back. Tease a few strands loose on one side, too.

Step five: Fix the style with a generous mist of Bold Control Hairspray all over for long-lasting hold.

For added romance, team this hairstyle with a floral headband or clip.

Happy styling!
