Lack of volume is one of the most common complaints women have regarding their hair. Whether it's because of particularly thin hair fibers or smooth hair that lies flat, many of us are on the lookout for a solution. Good news: we've got it!
Choose your haircut
Remember: in order to give your hair the appearance of more volume, you need to rely on layering. During your next salon appointment, ask the stylist to cut layers into your lengths to take weight out – this simple technique can easily give you the volume you've dreamed of!
Choose a new color
A skilled colorist can even help you create the illusion of more volume with hair dye! Choose a honey blonde and chestnut balayage look as the colors work together to create light and shadow throughout your hair, giving the impression of more volume. In addition, the coloring process itself causes the hair fiber to swell, which automatically makes the hair look thicker.
Know your products
To give your hair more volume, you might consider reworking your haircare and styling routines. From shampoos to mousses, everything should be formulated for volume. Choose carefully, however, as applying too many products at once can weigh the hair down.
Switch up your styles
When styling your hair, opt for hairstyles that give the hair more volume – such as a bun with XXL roots, a 1960s bouffant ponytail or a half-up look with backcombed roots. Always remember to spray your hair with a strong-hold hairspray like Infinium Pure by L'Oréal Professionnel to avoid the need for a mid-day touch up!
