Despite her best efforts—threesomes (opens in new tab)parties (opens in new tab), and sexy dance numbers (opens in new tab) with nameless men—Megan can't seem hold on to Don's attention. She does, however, manage to keep our eyes permanently fixed on her voluminous, curly 'do (opens in new tab).

Luckily, you can head straight back to the late '60s, Mrs. Draper style,with just one tool and a few artful twirls of the wrist. The Sultra Bombshell Curling Iron (opens in new tab) employs the use of a cone shape (larger at the base and gradually thinner towards the end) to create loose waves that transition into tight curls. The result? Tons and tons of far out volume reminiscent of Megan's party girl hairstyle. Eat your heart out, Don.
