Okay so this is what you do:
Taylor Swift has naturally curly hair. This style is most suitable for those with naturally wavy or curly hair.
Step 1: Shampoo and condition your hair with your normal products designed for your current hair type, texture and condition.
If your hair is highlighted like Taylor's use either a moisture enhanced or color enriched formula. If your hair is dry from chemical processing, consider diluting the shampoo formula to protect your strands.
Shampoo products to try: Phyto - Phytojoba Hydrating Shampoo, PHYTO - Dry Hair System, Phyto - PhytoBrush Shampoo. If you have baby fine or thin hair and wish to build in the same lush movement and volume that Taylor has, use a volume enhancing shampoo.
Skip any rinse-out conditioning products that might make hair too soft and flat. If you must use a rinse-out conditioner, make sure that you limit how much you use and that you concentrate on the middle to the ends. Rinse well with a cool water spray which helps build natural volume and increases shine.
Step 2: Towel blot strands. Do not rub wet hair which is more fragile and can break. Detangle strands from the ends to the roots.
Step 3: Apply your favorite texture enhancing mousse or styling cream. Distribute from the top of the ears to the ends. Distribute well. If you prefer, mix with a good leave-in conditioner for super shine and softness. To protect against blow drying heat and add body, distribute a leave-in conditioner, mousse or gel from the top of the ears to the ends. Distribute well.
If your hair is fine or thin, apply a volumizing gel or similar products to the roots to get lots of body and movement.
If your hair tends to frizz or is naturally wavy or curly, you may wish to combine a volume product for the roots with a smoothing serum for the rest of the hair. Anti-Frizz Product to try: Rene Furterer - Control Emulsion Anti-Frizz)
Root volume products to try: Phyto - Phytovolume Actif, PHYTO - Volume System, Phyto - Phytovolume Shampoo).
Step 4: If your hair is naturally wavy and/or curly, use a long finger diffuser to create a natural wavy style.
Working from side to side and separating hair into 2" sections, use a long finger diffuser attached to a blow dryer and allow strands to nestle into the bowl to dry and enhance waves and curls.
Continue to use diffuser until entire hair is dry. Avoid touching hair as little as possible to prevent frizz.
Step 5: If your hair is naturally straight you will need to build in volume at the roots for a more balanced look with the ringlets forming at the middle of the strands and cascading towards the ends.
To build in volume at the roots, use the round brush to lift your tresses up and direct the air flow from the dryer up the hair shaft to the root. This "ruffles the cuticle" helping to add natural fullness.
If you prefer, bend over at the waist and direct the air flow of the dryer up the hair shaft towards the roots. When hair is 90% dry, bend right side up and work on the hair from the ears down to the ends.
Seal the style by finishing up with a blast of cool air, if possible, from your blow dryer.
Step 6: If you used a long finger diffuser to create natural waves and curls, once your hair is completely dry, use your fingers to arrange waves and curls into the desired pattern. If you wish, you may use a Marcel style curling iron to create a tighter ringlet or wave pattern.
Step 7: If you used a round brush, when hair is completely dry, separate into 2" sections and roll with medium to large sized electric rollers. Let rollers cool in the hair. Remove and arrange new curls and waves with fingers. Use a Marcel style curling iron to create tight ringlets.
Step 8: Spray the finished style with a good holding hairspray.
Hairspray to try: PhytoPro - Instant Hold Spray #15).
Step 9: Apply a tiny drop of shine serum, drops or spray into the palms of your hands. Lightly brush the palms over the top of your style and you are ready to rock.
Shine products to try: Phyto - PhytoLisse (Formerly Phytodefrisant RelaxSerum)
If you prefer, you can use a curling iron to turn under the ends a little bit or use a straight iron on selected pieces around the face to give a contrasting texture to the finished look.

Twist your damp hair in sections (the least amount of hair you twist, the curlier it will be) and pin in place til dry. Use a volumizing mousse too.
