A vintage bouffant hairstyle is always a great option for a night out or a special occasion. The gravity-defying volume, combined with the polished retro finish creates a dramatic style that's perfect for those times when you want to go the extra mile with your mane.

How to style it

Step 1
After washing and towel-drying your hair, apply Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Blow Out Heatspray evenly throughout.

Step 2
Divide your hair into three horizontal sections - top, middle and nape - and blow-dry each one. Use a paddle brush to keep the hair straight as you run the dryer over it.

Step 3
Once everything is almost dry, flip your head upside down and finish the blowout. This will add lift at the root and give your hair plenty of volume right off the bat.

Step 4
Part your hair on one side then section off a couple of inches at the front. Clip this section out of the way while you work on the rest.

Step 5
Spray the roots on top of your head and at the crown with Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray, then tease the hair from behind to build volume.

Step 6
Gently smooth the hair back over, then pin it into a bouffant at the back.

Step 7
Gather the rest of your hair into a French twist or low bun and secure with bobby pins. Unclip the hair at the front and tuck it behind your ears.

Step 8
Complete your new bouffant with a generous veil of Advanced Hairspray LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray.
