1. BLOW DRY UPWARDS

When blow drying your hair, don’t worry so much about smoothing your hair down. Instead, when it comes to this way to give your hair more volume, aim your blow dryer upwards to give cuticles that extra lift. Finish by blasting your hair on a lower heat setting.

2. SWITCH UP YOUR PART

If you part your hair in the same place every day, this will only encourage it to lay flat. To give your hair some extra volume simply part it on the other side or sweep your hair back and lose the part altogether. Keep your new hairdo in place with some hairspray, to keep your hair from falling back into its usual parted pattern.

3. GET THE RIGHT HAIRCUT

The right haircut can make all the difference when it comes to making your hair appear thick and more voluminous. We keep getting told that layers are key to a stylish haircut, but too many layers can make hair appear stringy and lifeless. A single length cut makes hair look thicker, but might not always be so flattering. Instead, go for angled pieces to frame your face.

4. TEASE IT

Whenever I think of teasing hair, I have nightmares of matted locks and knots! However, teasing your hair is one guaranteed way of giving your hair that extra height. One of the key tips to teasing your hair is to fully remove your comb after each downward motion, this will help create a good lift without alot of frizz..

5. USE THOSE ROLLERS

Nothing says volume more than big, bouncy curls. However, you don’t always have to use curlers with the end goal of having curls (are you still with me here?) They’re great for creating volume before you even style your hair. Roughly dry your hair, put it into velcro rollers, and then wait until hair is fully dry before removing. Loosen curls and style in any way you want.  You can also use large hot rollers for more bounce.

6. GIVE DRY SHAMPOO A GO

Dry shampoo works by helping soak up any extra moisture and oil, as well as giving hair some added lift. Simply apply some dry shampoo and muss up your roots with your fingertips. 

7. CONDITION THEN SHAMPOO

This tip may seem like one of the odder ways to give hair more volume. Conditioner can weigh the hair down, so applying it last can in fact encourage it to lay flat. Applying shampoo after conditioner will help remove any residue and leave hair much lighter. Try it out and see if it works for you! Avoid putting too much conditioner on the top of your head, instead focus on mid length to ends.
