Mega Sexy Volume. It’s something we’re all after. It’s practically a trademark to every beauty on the front cover of magazines and Hollywood starlets. The crucial nuances behind this look that every woman wants and every man wants to touch is softness, shine, body and most importantly a tousled quality that is just a little lived-in and a lot of sexy. Lucky for you and I, you don’t even need to head to the salon to create the volume and body we all want. Simply click through the notes and follow the steps. Your hair will be the envy of all your friends. –– Michelle Rotbart

Step One: Start in the shower and cleanse and condition with curl hydration shampoo and conditioner. This duo adds moisture and encourages waves and curls.

Step Two: Post-shower, apply a dollop of styling whip to damp strands from roots to ends. Then grab a paddle brush and hair-dryer and blow-dry sections in the opposite direction from which hair falls. You’ll get a natural middle part by brushing hair straight back and then pushing it forward from the back of the head.

Step Three: Spray hair with protective thickening lotion and then grab your curling wand and wrap sections of various widths around the barrel. No need to make anything too perfect, each section should go in the opposite direction for a natural looking, ‘oh-it-just-sort-of-fell-that-way’ style.

Step Four: Gently brush out waves and spray the ends with shine spray. For a modern version of the tease, simply take a few sections from underneath, leaving the top section alone and use your brush to do one or two backcombing strokes. It gives hair a little bit more volume. Finish your look with a few pulses of primp.
