Nothing says romance like a big pile of voluminous hair pinned loosely atop the head. Pair it with a shoulder-baring top, lightly smudged eyes and nude glossy lips for the ultimate come-hither look. This style should look effortless, but attaining lots of volume while keeping texture loose can be a challenge. Learn how to do it in the style notes. –– Laura Martin

Step: Apply a handful of volume foam to roots and mist mids and ends with protective thickening lotion. Rough dry, flipping head upside down and lifting roots with fingers to encourage volume.

Step: Continue drying with a  mid-sized round brush. Use high elevation to dry hair roots to ends. Allow to cool completely.

Step: Pump refinish into roots and use a teasing brush to tease roots for added volume. Brush out the top surface lightly.

Step: Use fingers to pull hair into a loose french twist, knot, or other simple updo. Attach with bobby pins and pull loose some soft pieces. Finish with holding spray.
