Step-by-step guide for an instant bouffant
Step 1: Start off with wet hair. Apply bodifying mousse and distribute evenly through your hair using your fingers.
Step 2: Get blowout hair by blow drying using medium-sized round brushes. Wrap your hair completely around the brushes and keep them in your hair to let the hair cool down.
Step 3: Hold the ends of your hair and begin to roll them around velcro rollers. Work your way towards the roots.
Step 4: Take out the velcro rollers and gently tease (or backcomb) several hair sections starting at the roots to create volume in the crown area and on the sides of your head. To add texture use styling powder.
Step 5: Pull your hair to the back and smooth out the sides with a brush to create a voluminous crown area.
Using bobby pins, pull sides of hair back and clip in the back. Secure the look with hairspray when you're done.
Step 6: For a more vintage-inspired look, add accessories like bows or ribbons for a final touch.
