    Wash your hair with shampoo and conditioner. If your hair tangles easily, apply two layers of conditioner and brush it through your hair using a plastic hairbrush. Towel-dry your hair and brush it again.

    Apply your favorite hair mousse (I used Rusk Volumizing Mousse) by squeezing it onto a hairbrush and brushing your hair throughout. Apply the mousse to the bottom quarter of your hair and brush each hair strand thoroughly.

    Flip your hair upside down and blow-dry it using a hair dryer until it’s about 70% dry. Don’t worry about which direction your hair is facing, just make sure it doesn’t make too tangled.

    Secure each curl with a hair clip or a hairpin while your hair is still hot from the curler. That’s actually the ultimate secret of all-night-long curls: if you let your curls go too early, they’ll never survive the entire night.

    When you are done with curling and clipping all your hair strands, remove the two clips that you had on the top and curl those strands in different directions.
