Trend watch: Sky-high hair

Amy Winehouse has been doing a Priscilla Presley for ages. Hollywood starlets have also been sporting them of late and the much-hyped remake of Hairspray even got John Travolta into one.

Then use a comb to tease two-inches up the length of each section, giving each a spritz with Sebastian Professional Originals Shaper Hairspray for hold and workable control.
