Brushing hair upside down

1. Brush your hair

Start with clean, damp hair. Grab your hairbrush, flip your head upside down, and start brushing your hair away from your head. This will encourage more volume because, of course, we need as much volume as possible to achieve this '90s big hair look. 

Sectioning hair into top and bottom

2. Section your hair

Now, section your hair into two by clipping the top part of your hair. 

Blowdrying and rolling the hair

3. Blowdry and roll

Starting with the bottom section, take your blow-out hair dryer brush and brush through your hair. As you do this, ensure that your roll the brush inward.

This will give more volume and a little bit of wave. 

Putting hair in Velcro hair rollers

To really lock in that wave, take your velcro hair roller and roll the blowdried section in an inward position. Then secure the roller with a bobby pin.

Repeat the process for the rest of your bottom sections. 

Blow-drying hair up and away from the face

Now, it’s time to do the crown of your head. This is where you need to get the most volume. Start with your bang section and blowdry it up and away from your face. 

Pulling bangs in hair rollers

Then, go ahead and put in a hair roller.

Letting hair dry in hair rollers

4. Dry your hair

Once your hair is done, let it sit like this until it’s completely dry. 

Blasting the rollers with a hair dryer

Before you take the rollers out, run your hair dryer over them a little. This will heat your hair a little and help lock in those waves. 

Unrolling the hair

5. Unroll your hair

Now, for my favorite part! Unroll your hair to see the finished '90s hair blowout look!
