Whether they're dark brown, a beautiful shade of honey blonde or boasting an ombre effect, Beyonce's curls explode into a style that looks difficult to achieve without a stylist. True, this look is easiest to accomplish on hair that is naturally curly or thick. However, as long as you're dedicated to gathering products and putting in a bit of extra time and patience, you'll be rocking a full head of unruly corkscrews in no time.
Shampoo and condition your hair with a lightweight moisturizing shampoo and conditioner. Towel dry wet hair.
Apply a palm-sized amount of curl-enhancing mousse to towel-dried hair, distributing the product evenly.
Bend your head upside down.
Blow-dry your entire head of hair, using your fingers in place of a brush to pick out tangles.
Bring your head back up to a normal resting position.
Plug in a 1-inch barrel curling iron and wait for it to heat up. Wrap 1-inch segments around the curling iron in alternating directions and curl your entire head of hair.
Apply flexible-hold hair spray to the top and the undersides of your hair to finish your look.

If your hair is already naturally curly, swap the volumizing shampoo and mousse for anti-frizz shampoo and curling cream, let air dry, and use a 1-inch barrel curling iron at-will throughout your hair to add balance to your bounce.
Practice caution when using hot tools such as a curling iron. If you prefer, wear a heat-resistant glove to avoid burns.
