Think curly-haired icon … think Melanie Masson. It wasn’t just Melanie’s amazing and powerful voice that got X-Factor viewers talking – it was her hippyish, strawberry-blonde, fountain of bubbling tresses that flowed over her shoulders and harked back to the 1970s. If, like me, you have poker straight hair, or you want to tame your frizz, here’s how to get a head full of gorgeous, tumbling curls…

Melanie Masson - diva with gorgeous curly hair - how to recreate her curly hair look as seen on X Factor

1. Brush, dampen hair and section off. Use curlers such as Curlformers to create tumbling, bouncilicious curls.
2. Complete full head of hair with curlers. Leave until they are dry. Slowly and carefully take out curlers, winding out with your finger to protect the curl.

3. Style hair as you wish. For Melanie’s look very carefully separate curls and finish by spraying with a high-shine glossy holding spray such as John Frieda 100% Shine Glossing Mist.

Why not finish off the look with 70s influenced styling? Rather than going head-to-toe retro why not just add a few simple vintage pieces? Visit Etsy and you’ll find a great selection of Vintage buys. I would team my tumbling tresses with something like this Hand Made Batik Maxi Skirt.
