Big, beautiful, voluminous hair is all the rage right now, and we want in! What better way to rock your back to school look than by adding some much-needed volume to your hair before the school year starts again. From Blake Lively to Rita Ora, some of our favorite celebrities have been rocking some voluminous looks recently, so we asked some of our resident beauty gurusto share their insider tips and tricks on how to increase your hair’s volume.
1. Use a Mousse With Muscle
When you were younger, you probably played with your mom’s hair products and found that if you put enough of her gooey mousse on your wet hair you could make your hair look curly. Crunchy, but curly. Hopefully, your friends quickly talked you out of this phase of wet looking micro-curls. But you shouldn’t avoid mousse forever. A good mousse will give your hair some much-needed volume without weighing it down or making your hair look wet or slimy.
Mousse™ Volumizing Foam, for example, is a mousse that has the power to give your hair boost and shine without weighing it down. For full, textured, or curly styles, Mousse™ Volumizing Foam is the perfect support product. The soft foam delivery provides natural volume, while still being touchable. Mousse™ Volumizing Foam is an exceptional volumizer with a firm hold. The alcohol-free formula leaves hair moist and healthy, yet as full as possible.
2. Roll It Up
We love creating big volumized curls, but getting them can be tricky. We’ve found that the trick to creating waves and curls that are big and full of volume is to either use a high quality flat iron when you’re on the run, or hot rollers when you have more time to prep. What’s not to love? With hot rollers, you can roll your hair and then continue your morning routine while your hair sets. Pack your lunch, do your makeup, or brush your teeth all while giving your hair a volumized punch.
Hot rollers are perfect for everyone from beginners to pros; there’s not much work or consideration that needs to be given to use hot rollers, simply heat them up and go at it. Rolling your rollers away from your face will result in red carpet curls whereas rolling towards you face will create more of an intimate, soft feel. Go ahead and experiment with placement and duration until you find the combination that works the best for you.
3. Find The Products That Work For You
Sometimes what our hair needs is some extra lift that it can’t get from shampoo and conditioner alone. We’ve already mentioned the Mousse™ Volumizing Foam, which we love, but there are a quite a few more products out there for those who have stubbornly flat hair. If you have thin hair, you many need to partener your Volumizing Foam with some of the below products to get the results you want.Swell Volume™ Volumizing Treatment This unique, lightweight treatment transforms from lifeless to voluminous and full of body.
