This is a Marie Claire Advertorial.

We're all guilty of getting stuck in a rut when it comes to how we wear our hair, so with the new season ushering itself in, now is the perfect time to switch things up. Big curls are huge right now and there are plenty of ways to tap into the trend, even for those of us who don't happen to be blessed with them naturally – you'll need to invest in the right products and tools to achieve salon-worthy results, though.

Cloud Nine has all style bases covered with its range of professional products and heated styling tools, so all that's left for you to do is to get to work on your new hairdo.

Here's a step-by-step guide to help you reach your #hairgoals...

How to master...Cascading Soft Curls

You'll need: The Cloud Nine Original Wand, Dressing Brush, Batiste Stylist Hold Me Hairspray and some water spray.

Soft Curl Step 1

Step 1: Section dry hair from temple to temple, then ear to ear, to create three sections. Set your Cloud Nine Original Wand to medium.

Soft Curl Step 2

Step 2: Starting at the bottom and working up, lightly spray thin vertical sections with water. Curl for 6-8 seconds, release and let the curl cool.

Soft Curl Step 3

Step 3: Take sections from the top and wrap the hair around the wand to add volume at the roots.

Soft Curl Step 4

Step 4: Spray curls with the light-hold hairspray and brush into a smooth wave or shake apart for soft, bouncy curls.
