Sometimes, you really can't have enough of a good thing, especially when it comes to killer hairstyle trends! The 2014 penchant for all things big and wavy is one of the most fun look around right now and is likely to keep it's #trend status well into next year, too!

We already have a fair few tutorials for big waves but, after seeing the XXL looks at the Alice + Olivia Fall 2014 presentation, we couldn't help but be inspired to come up with another one...

If you're looking for a stand-out look that is right on-trend, keep reading!

What you need:

Tail comb
Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray
Bobby pins (if your bangs can't be tucked behind your ears)

Step one: Take a tail comb and define a straight center part. If your hair is reluctant to stay put, dip run the comb under a tap or dip it in some water and comb the top of your hair through.

Step two: Apply High Lift Creation Spray generously down the lengths of your hair.

Step three: With a medium-barrel curling iron, curl your hair up to your eyes/temples, leaving the top flat. Work in half-inch sections and finger-comb as you go.

Step four: Gently tease the lengths of your hair with a comb. Don't go too crazy, you only want to add in a little extra volume at this point. (Find out how to avoid causing damage when teasing by reading our simple guide first.) Make sure you leave plenty of defined curls.

Step five: Tuck your hair behind your ears or secure the front sections and bangs with bobby pins if they aren't quite long enough to reach. To get a sleek finish on the straight parts of your hair, mist some Bold Control Hairspray into the palm of your hand and then smooth it over your hair.

Step six: Spritz your whole style with Bold Control Hairspray and you're good to go!

If you want to tame the look slightly, accessorize with a simple headband. This will make this hairdo more wearable if you're planning to wear it in the daytime.

Happy styling!
