If you've ever wanted volumized hair that is full of texture, very feminine and a little bit retro, you've come to the right place. This relaxed bouffant hairstyle is all of those things and more, notably a favorite of French film icon Brigitte Bardot.

On top of all that, it's a surprisingly simple hairstyle to recreate on shoulder-length hair or longer.

Retro reigns supreme

Lately, the fashion world has been looking to the past for inspiration with 60's mini dresses, classic cat eyes, glamorous curls, and bouffant ponytails taking over both the red carpet and the runway. There's no better way to jump on board with this trend than with a super simple bouffant like the one above.

Step one

Scrunch a generous amount of Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse to towel-dried hair, using a wide-tooth comb to ensure it's distributed evenly from root to end.

Step two

Use a barrel brush to curl the hair at the root, aiming toward your face, and blow dry the hair closest to the scalp before moving down the rest of the strand. For some serious XXL volume, direct the hair in the opposite direction of the way you want to style it.

Step three

Create a rough centre parting with your fingers and apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray to your roots.

Step four

Tease the section of hair at the crown of the head and then gently smooth the top over with a bristle brush. Check out our guide to teasing to help you minimize damage.

Step five

Spray Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray all over your hair and use your hands to push the hair up from the scalp for a last minute volume boost. Use bobby pins to shape hair at the sides if tucking it behind your ears isn't enough.

That's it!
