Regardless of whether or not you can sing and/or play an instrument, an edgy "I'm in the band" hairstyle is just perfect for a night out! It's a look that will never blend into the background and one that will also help to showcase any hot party makeup you might be planning.

If you want your hair to get noticed, this look could be just what you need... are you ready for some hell-raising volume?

Controlled chaos

This half-up 'do requires XXL volume, but you also want to keep that volume confined, albeit only very slightly. There's a reason for this: to avoid any nasty sticky-uppy mess when your reflection catches your eye after you've been dancing! Because of this, styling with the right products is really important.


If you're planning to wash your hair before you head out, make sure you apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse before drying it. This will promote body and lift from the moment you get out of the shower, and it will make building more volume a lot easier later on.


Once the hair is totally dry, mist the lengths with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray. Take a comb and gently tease the hair until it's about two or three times as big as it is naturally. Leave the top section of hair smooth to add extra contrast to this look. Be careful not to pull the hair back on itself too hard as this can damage it and only create thick mats which won't look quite as rock & roll as you might have hoped...

Gather sections of hair from either side of your face and pin them back into a loose half-up style. Spray your whole 'do with Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray, and you're done!

Ready to rock?
