Step one

STEP 1: Comb through hair and separate into sections ready for curling. Using hair straighteners – try Lee Stafford CoCo LoCo Irons (£44.99, Argos) – curl each section into a loose wave by clamping hair near the root and twisting so it is wrapped around the irons. Pull down to the end of the hair to create a wave.

STEP 2: Once you have curled each section, bring  one up to your head to create a barrel curl and pin, allowing  it to cool and set. Repeat. Spritz Umberto Giannini Super Model Shape hairspray (£4.62, umbertogiannini.com) all over. When  cool, remove pins and allow  curls to fall.
Step 3

STEP 3: Use kirby grips to pin the front section of hair to the side of the temple, behind the ear.
Tip: Cross the kirby grips over each other to lock the pins into place and ensure they do not drop. Finish with a mist of hairspray, so hair stays in place.

STEP 3: Bring the section under the doughnut up and over it, to create the faux-bob shape. Next, bring sections from the crown down across the doughnut, covering it. Tuck each one under the doughnut and pin into place, leaving a few tendrils at the front to frame the face.

STEP 2: Give hair a mirror-like appearance by smoothing the sides using a shine product – try Lee Stafford’s Wet Look GeLEE (£7.99, Boots). Run the product down the hair shaft using the flat of your hands, then run a comb through to ensure the surface is completely smooth.
