Step 1: Prep Your Locks

For best results, start this look with fresh, clean hair that has been blown dry to around 70% with a hairdryer. Before blowdrying, add a volumising spray to the length of your hair for added shine.

Then, part your hair using a hairbrush and clip up the top section with a claw clip so you can work your magic on the lower layer of hair first.

Step 2: Create Your Curls

Working in small sections, use a heated roller hairbrush to create big loose waves. Curl from the bottom and away from your face. Hold in place for a few seconds before releasing your hair and letting the curl tumble out.

If you don't have a heated hairbrush, that's fine! You can create the same look using good ol' fashioned hair rollers - it will just take a little bit longer. When sectioning your slightly damp hair, blast the length of your sectioned hair with a hairdryer to add heat. Spray some light fix hairspray onto your roller, start from the end and roll your hair under until it reaches your roots. The bigger the roller, the better.

Step 3: Curl & Repeat

Follow the same curling process on the bottom and then top layer of your hair. Remember, you are not trying to create small tight curls here, so ensure they're loose and smooth.

If using large velcro rollers, complete the rolling process and then, using your hairdryer, apply heat all over for 10-15 minutes. This is super-important, as, without the heat, the curls won't stay put or give you that beautiful 90s bouncy end look. When you've finished and satisfied your curls are set, you can carefully release the rollers and flip your hair over to shake out the curls.

Step 4: Add Volume

If your hair is lying a little flat on top, take a fine-toothed comb and backcomb small sections of your hair at the root to will add volume. You can spray a little root boost here, too, if you to go full time-travel here with your look.

Step 5: Set in Place

Once your curls are in place, flip your hair from side to side (the fun bit!) and find your parting. You can either leave it on a centre parting (which is very 90s) or flip it moreover to one side for an exaggerated final look! Spritz it with some hairspray, and you’re good to go!
