Prep your hair.

Before you learn how to curl hair and whip up this noughties-inspired party look, wash your hair with the Dove Advanced Hair Series Pure Care Dry Oil Shampoo and Conditioner. This will help nourish any dry and damaged strands, and make your hair appear healthier and shinier.

Apply mousse and blow-dry hair.

Want to know how to make your party curls last? Then you’ll need a volumising mousse like the VO5 Volume Mousse! So take a golf ball-sized amount of it and evenly rake through damp hair. This will give your mane the fabulous body and hold it needs to pull an all-nighter. Once you’ve done this, blow-dry your hair.

Tip: To really amp up the volume, tip your head upside down while blow-drying and lift your hair at the roots with your hands, like Laura does!

Section and curl your hair.

After separating your hair into 3 big sections, take your first section and split it into 2. Then, taking a one inch-barrelled curling wand, wrap a smaller section of your hair around it, and curl it away from your face. And, since you’ll be creating effortless runway curls, only hold the hair in place for a few seconds to help you get a nice, loose curl. Continue working in these sections until your entire head of hair is curled.

Set with hairspray.

Run your fingers gently through your hair and massage at the roots to create some extra volume. Then, set the look with the TRESemmé Ultimate Hold Platinum Hairspray. Trust us: this will give your mane that fresh-out-of-the-salon feel and make your ‘do dance-proof. too!
