Zendaya never fails to impress on the red carpet and this weekend's 94th Academy Awards at Hollywood's Dolby Theatre - the Oscars - were no exception. Wearing custom Valentino and Bulgari, Zendaya stunned in the gleaming skirt and cropped silk shirt ensemble. Her make-up was warm - a nude lip, bronzed cheekbones and a soft smoky eye - and her hair - still the tawny shade of auburn the star debuted last month - was swept up in a style reminiscent of the 90s chignon. And there's one thing you need tonnes of for a chignon like that - volume.

As those with fine hair are well aware, volume isn't always that easy to come by. According to Zendaya's Oscars hair stylist though, there's one high street tool that might just have your back. Hair stylist to the stars Antoinette Hill took to Instagram Stories to reveal every step of Zendaya's hair styling process ahead of the Oscars.

Next, Antoinette preps Zendaya's hair with a volume spray. Yes, it's TRESemme, but no, unfortunately it's not available to shop in the UK just yet. Stay tuned, though. Antoinette then styles in that volume with a high street hot brush. That hot brush is available in the UK and you can scroll on down to shop it below.

Next, Antoinette goes in with those clip-in extensions, styles in Zendaya's chignon and sets the look with TRESemme's Total Volume Hairspray, another one we're yet to be able to shop in the UK but fingers crossed for its imminent arrival!

Antoinette started off by colouring a few clip-in extensions, to ensure they matched Zendaya's new hair shade perfectly, before prepping Zendaya's hair with a volume spray and hot brush and fixing the additional lengths in.

Never underestimate the ability of a hot brush to pack in the volume. Those with a round head allow you to get very close to the root, and style in that lift. Keen to shop the_exact_hot brush Antoinette used on Zendaya? As luck would have it, it's available in the UK. Simply add to basket below:
