1. Apply volumizing mousse to damp hair and part it to one side.
2. Blow dry hair with a large round brush, brushing it under (with the brush under the hair as you pull it through). Blow dry bangs across forehead and off to the side of the part.
3. Using a large-barrel curling iron, curl 3-inch sections of hair in front, the sides and the back, for 10 seconds at a time. You don't want to create tight curls, but large waves.
4. Finger comb hair to loosen, lift and separate curls, which will add volume and softness to your style. Use a dab of hair wax to direct any errant pieces, and finish the look with a light mist of light-hold hairspray.
