Lana Del Rey's '60s-style bouffant has been explained step-by-step.

The gorgeous songstress is famed for her vintage aesthetic and regularly steps out in a range of looks inspired by bygone eras.

Lana is famed for experimenting with her hairstyles too, and celebrity hairdresser Adam Reed has revealed how to re-create the star's '60s bouffant.

"Use a volume-boosting shampoo and conditioner to prep hair - they contain ingredients that literally plump it up. For extra oomph, use a light-weight volumising mousse too," he advised to British magazine Closer.

"With this look, you need to spend time blow-drying each and every section of the hair.

"Using a large round-barrelled brush, take medium-sized sections and curl the hair under, while lifting at the same time. Run the hairdryer right from the root down to the tips."

Adam has advised using a couple of ways to add texture to the style.

"For added bounce, take six large heated rollers and place them evenly throughout dry hair. Make sure your hair's curling in the right direction - under, not flicking out," he explained.

"For lasting volume, crimp the roots at the back of your head. Use a paddle brush to sweep the top layers of hair back, hiding the crimped roots. Create a quiff-like shape, then pin in place with kirby grips."

Adam has also stressed the importance of finishing touches with this look.

"Spritz hairspray all over to give extra hold and keep a mini in your handbag for touch-ups. If hair starts to drop, spray some on your fingers and massage into the scalp," he said.
