Want to create a look that’s perfect for a girls day, brunch, or daytime party? Try this super big, light and airy, ethereal bouffant. Click the notes for the steps.—Kelly Rowe

Step: Shampoo hair with daily shampoo and condition only the very ends with gentle conditioner.

Step: Liberally spray in protective thickening lotion and run a nickel of styling cream through the mid lengths and ends.

Step: Flip head upside down and blast dry focusing on the roots first. Use a paddle brush as you dry to remove tangles. When hair is 100% dry, layer in refinish, allow to cool, then flip head back upright.

Step: Using a round paddle brush lightly brush bottom two thirds of hair into a low pony and secure into a bun with bobby pins.

Step: Layer more refinish into the top third and heavily backcomb to get height. Slide on a headband then lightly brush back the backcombed bits.

Step: Pull out some pieces for interest. Mist entire look with primp for a light hold finish.
