3 Voluminous Hair Hacks

3 Voluminous Hair Hacks

The higher the hair the closer to Jesus? Or something like that. For most of us the dream is to have long flowing hair with just the right amount of oomph. That sexy fullness only those who pay a fortune to get their hair blow-dried weekly can achieve. Here are a few of my voluminous hair tricks!

Chubby Curling Tong

Pick a super duped wide barrelled curling tong and take 1-2 inch sections and curl. Then as you let them loose use a comb to brush them out. Make sure to prep the hair with a good heat protectant that has a little hold. My pick is the L'Oréal Paris Elnett Curl Heat Protect Spray. Results- bouncy loose curls with just enough definition. Psst - Babyliss Glamour Waves is the best tool.

Velcro Rollers

Think of these as a push up bra for your hair. Prep hair by scrunching through a bit of mousse (Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse) and then take a roller and roll the hair up. Don’t worry about being to precise about this as uneven placement can add to the undone voluminous look. Number 1 Tip? Roll the ones at your crown away from the face. Set the hair with heat and finger comb out.

Prepping Products

Make sure to use a texturising or volume boosting spray before drying the hair. If you have fine hair to begin with and struggle to get volume then this is key step. Just make sure not to overload the hair with product as it can leave it looking TOO volumised. Remember were going for sexy mussed up volume not crazy dragged through a hedge volume! Oribe Dry Texurising Spray and Bumble and Bumble Salt Spray in conjunction with each other is just... next level.

  15. I used to use velcro rollers all the time. Great tips, I am always lusting after volumious hair x


  16. I love that you don't mention backcombing, it is widely used before it's such a convenient method of course but it can be so damaging to the hair! And doesn't look that cool when you see all the knots that it creates haha.
    Love your methods, especially the rollers!
