  • On wet hair, work a high-hold mousse like TIGI Catwalk Extra Strong Mousse ($10) from root to tip, and then blow dry.

  • Next, use a large-barrel curling iron (about one inch) to create big curls throughout the remaining hair.
  • Spritz with plenty of lightweight hairspray, like Victoria's Secret Style Hold and Finish Hairspray ($24), and you're ready to go.
