Perhaps you want to style your hair the same way? Look no further! We’ll put you through the steps to get the wild, bold and voluminous look for your Madonna outfit.

Items you need:

  • Curl-enhancing shampoo and conditioner
  • Curl-enhancing mousse
  • Wide-tooth comb
  • Heat protecting spray
  • Hair dryer
  • Curling iron (3/4-inch barrel recommended)
  • A scarf or large ribbon
  • Secure-hold hairspray

Follow the steps:

  1. Wash and Prep the hair

Using the curl-enhancing shampoo and conditioner; wash and rinse the hair, then lightly dry with a towel to remove moisture.

  1. Add Mousse

Gradually apply mousse to small sections of your hair at a time, work all the way from the root to tip until you cover your entire hair. Comb hair with a wide-tooth comb for even distribution of mousse.

  1. Dry Hair

Lightly apply a heat protecting spray on hair, then dry, muddling hair with your fingers until it is completely dry.

  1. Curl the Hair

First heat the iron (according to instruction), and part the hair from one side. Wrap small strands of hair (about 1-2 inch section) around the outside of the curling iron barrel all the way to the end from the root. Hold in position until warm – then unwind. This creates a tight curl. Repeat on other strands till the entire hair is curly.

  1. 5.   Tousle and add Definition

Evenly apply some more mousse to the curls, tousling with your finger to give additional volume. Use the hair dryer (at its lowest setting) to dry your hair, while tousling with your fingers.

  1. Set Hair

Now your hair should look voluminously wavy. Spray with hairspray to ensure a long-lasting hold.

  1. Accessorize your hair

Madonna’s big bow hair required a scarf – so you will need a scarf or oversize ribbon, placed at the base of your neck, then pulled above your head. Tie scarf/ribbon in a bow, and add some more spray.
