7 Easy Tricks to Volumize Your Hair

Dec 22, 2015 by Sarah (Day Styles)

Flat hair is out and big hair is in, and now we are always looking for different ways to add volume to our hair. It doesn't matter if your hair is long or short; we have some awesome ways to add dimension to your locks to make your hair look thicker and fuller.

Change Your Part

Sometimes the best solutions are often the simplest solutions. Switching your part can release gravity-defying hair sections and helps to remove tension from your roots, which can help boost fullness and volume.

Highlights

Highlights are a great way to add dimension to your hair and create a fuller looking hairline. If you have thin hair, avoid highlighting the crown of your head and chunky looking highlights. Be careful and precise and get a seamless, volumizing look.

Teasing!

Teasing is so underrated when it comes to styling your hair. Grab a few locks of hair and tease at the root from underneath the natural fall of your hair. After a few backcombing strokes the hair should start appearing much more full, and add just a touch of hairspray to keep it in check.

Cold Air

If you’re in the middle of your day, and you find your hair deflated, or if you just want to lock-in some added volume, just use cold air. Cold air can set the volume, and it locks in lifted hair as well. So once your style your hair the way you like it, lock it in place with a blast of cooler air.

Blow Dry From Underneath

We all have our personal way of blow-drying our hair, but if changed our technique just slightly it can increase the amount of volume and fullness in our hair. Next time you’re blow-drying your hair, flip your head upside down and blow-dry from that angle. Do it until your hair is completely dry and you’ll have a ton of volume in your hair afterwards!

Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is perfect for humid weather when the atmosphere can destroy a well-styled hairdo. It is great for restoring bounciness and volume to your mane. They imbue hairlines with materials that add volume to the individual hair shafts that increases the lift in your hair and often gets rid of the oils that form on your scalp that weigh your hair down.

Keep Your Hair Short

When gravity takes hold of your hair, it’s a tricky thing, and definitely keeps your hair down more than you want. If you’re looking to add more volume to your hair, shorter hair is better! When your hair is shorter (like a collarbone-length bob cut) it keeps your hair looking full, and it’s a super versatile cut.
