Pump up the volume!

Stars like Adele, Kim Kardashian and Katy Perry have been getting high -- with their hair, that is -- in retro bouffants.

To copy their sky-high look, Us Weekly has laid out the full step-by-step below with the help of celeb hair pro Danilo, who created the 60's-inspired 'dos backstage at Gwen Stefani's L.A.M.B. runway show in NYC.

1. Begin by sectioning off hair into three parts: left side, top, right side. Working with just the top section of hair (think mohawk), place a hot roller against scalp and wrap a two-inch section of hair around the base like you would with a curling iron. Star at front and place each roller behind one another to form a line down the center of your head. Set for 10 minutes to create volume at the crown. (Danilo used T3 Voluminous Hot Rollers, $99, sephora.com.)

2. Once rollers are removed, let hair cool and spray each section with Oribe Hair Care Dry Texturizing Spray ($39, neimanmarcus.com) to create texture.

3. Except for the very front section of hair, Begin to back comb each section. When back-combing, use a bristle paddle brush or a teasing brush rather than a plain comb. This volume will be the foundation and oomph of your bouffant.

4. Gently pull un-backcombed hair over the backcombed hair and secure in place with bobby pins. Either leave your bouffant in a half-up, half-down 'do or pin the sides of your hair back to where the rest of the bobbby pins are and twist the ends of your hair into a French twist for a complete updo.
