That voice! That style! That puffed-up pompadour! Janelle Monáe may have taken the rest of world by storm with her melodic tunes, but we’re more obsessed with the gorgeous singer’s go-to avant garde hairstyle. Sorry Snooki—Miss Monáe will always win the battle of the pouf. If you’re looking for a new fun look for your locks, give it a try. Here’s how to create your very own Monáe-like mane.
Step 1: Using Goody Start Style Finish Gel Hot Round Brush ($6 at WalMart.com), bend over and brush hair forward.
Step 2: Tuck roll hair down towards your scalp and secure with Goody Simple Styles Volume Boost Comb ($6 at Target.com). Using both hands, mold your pouf into the perfect pompadour shape.
Step 3: Mist with Pantene Pro-V Medium-Thick Hair Style Anti-Humidity Hairspray ($4 at Drugstore.com) to set.
