Flip Your Part

The fastest way to fake volume is by simply switching your part to the opposite side you normally would do it. If you usually part in the middle, try a deep art on either side. Your hair will get an instant boost.

Shake It Out

Place your fingers underneath your crown and shake and flip hair, twisting the front pieces away from your face. Just don’t mess with the actual hair on top of your head as you can cause frizz. Set your big hair with primp.

Use The Right Products

Stylers like volume foam and protective thickening lotion will give your strands lightweight and volumizing lift. And make dry shampoo your new best friend, refinish is an instant miracle styler that will expand the body of your hair.

Pull Out Grandma’s Rollers

Velcro rollers will give you the volume you need at your roots. Pop rollers into damp and let air dry. Once completely dry, remove and comb through with fingers and finish with a blast from primp.
