Crank up the Volume on your hair not your iPod! Velcro rollers, massive amounts of hairspray, teasing brushes combined with an upside down blow dry are just some of the ways to add maximum, sexy volume creating a full head of luscious hair.
What lies beneath a big head of hair is usually a ton of teasing. The top layer is smoothed to look touchable, but there’s no way you could run your fingers through it. For extreme height, you can apply volumizer to the roots above the ears and then dry your hair upside down to allow gravity to lift strands away from the scalp. Setting hair with rollers or a large-barrel curling iron can also give a boost to roots. If you love hair straight — but still voluminous — flat-iron just the ends. Lock in your sexy lift by flipping your head over and spraying on a veil of volumizing hairspray.
Soda Can Curls – Get the look for yourself!
What you need:
- Hair dryer
- Long, sturdy bobby pins
- Elastic hair bands
- Clean, empty soda cans
- Super hold hair spray
- Volumizing mousse or gel
For big volume and soft waves, start with dry hair. If you want big, movable chic curls, wash your hair, towel dry it and work in a good amount of volumizing mousse or gel. Be sure to get plenty near the roots and work it through to the ends.
Tie most of your hair up on top of your head with a clip, leaving one layer down near the base of your neck. Brush the section so it is smooth and straight – this will prevent it from looking knotted once the curls are finished. Spritz the section of hair with hairspray and roll it around the can as you would a regular curler, getting it as close to your head as possible.
Secure the can by placing the elastic band (use plain rubber bands if your hair is very fine) lengthwise across your hair and the can. Use the bobby pins to secure loose strands by attaching the pin to your hair and the rubber band. Repeat this process around your head until all your hair is rolled. Spray your whole head with a light mist of hairspray.
Blow-dry your hair on a low, hot setting, using a diffuser if you have one available. Let the cans and your hair cool before unrolling them. Finger comb your hair and spray with a final spritz of hairspray!
