Messy XXL volume: a mean mane of curls

Perfect volume is something akin to the holy grail for style addicts, and probably has been since Narcissus first saw his reflection in the water! However, to achieve the look, it's not just about curls or crimping, there's also a lot of disheveling to do...

A disheveled look with big ambitions

When it comes to volume, whether real or false, a lioness-like mane is where it's at. These days, shapes are all about representing the female body, and hairstyles aren't an exception. Over the last few seasons, hairstyles have been putting on some weight and finally daring to take up some real space. Stylists can at last feel free to let loose their quest for dimensions with a disheveled XXL messy style.

Volume for everyone!

According to our hairstyle ambassador at L'Oréal Professionnel, Denis Holbecq, this XXL style is "ideal for curly hair, whether brunette, golden blonde or even light auburn". This "floaty, larger-than-life, very seventies" look suits all face shapes, and even naturally thin hair can take on the challenge. While wavy, curly and frizzy hair have an obvious advantage, a skilled styling hand and a generous application of Tecni.Art Full Volume Extra Maximum Volume Hair Mousse gives every hair type the opportunity to recreate this look.

XXL Volume: no holding back

While it is possible to achieve disheveled XXL volume by oneself, section by section, your best option is to leave it in professional hands. A stylist will know how to create excessive volume, without holding back and especially without damaging the hair fiber. YES to exaggerating volume with panache in order to imitate Solange Knowles or her sister Beyoncé, but NO to a head full of terrible tangles!
