Maxed-Out Hair

How to add body to your style

Whether you want to be a hot vixen or just want a little boost in your hair, adding body and volume enhances any style. Check out these tips to take your hair to new heights.

Pump Up Your Roots

Lift hair with volumizing products to add texture while keeping hair soft and shiny. A product like Volum'max Mousse provides you with vivacious volume almost instantly. Work the product into your hair when it’s still damp, focusing the spray at your roots. Although many of these products are lightweight, consider your hair type to determine how much product you really want to use. Fine hair gets weighed down easily, but thick and curly hair can hold a lot of product. Volumizing products give you lift at your roots and also help hold your sassy style in place.

The Big Blowout

The key to big, beautiful hair is the blowout. Lift roots with a large round brush. The best is a boar-bristle brush whose softer bristles add body without stretching or pulling out the hair. Situate the brush as close to your scalp as possible and glide the hair straight up from the base of your head to dry the roots in place. Alternate between hot and cold hair to set the style. While you dry out the rest of your hair, direct the nozzle of your blow dryer in the opposite direction of where the strands fall. For even greater body, use jumbo rollers to set your style.

Perfect Finish

Once your locks have cooled, remove the rollers and let your hair sit and relax for a bit. To add movement and define some curl, use a large barrel curling iron for a more natural, smooth effect. Remember to gently work in a protective heat product like Studio Line Hot Straight to keep your cuticles healthy. Finally, massage your scalp with your fingers to separate your strands and continue to boost your roots. Finish with Studio Line Design Finishing Spray to give your style a glossy finish.

Keep the Illusion

If you’re always longing for extra body, get a more permanent effect with a new cut and fresh color. Add shorter layers to heighten volume, and indulge in highlights or lowlights to add dimension.
