6. Lift up your roots.
Nowadays, there’s a multitude of options available for you to give your roots more volume, beginning with special sprays and hair tongs and ending with the curlers our moms and grandmothers used. If you don’t have any of these to hand, try using ordinary hairpins. Just place them in your wet hair and allow it to dry before removing them. Your roots will be slightly raised, but without giving you too much volume that looks unnatural.
5. Avoid using too much styling foam.
An excessive amount of styling foam can glue your hair together and make it heavier, in turn making it very difficult to achieve that additional volume. Apply the following rule: for styling short hair, all you need is a ball of foam about the size of a walnut. For medium-length hair, it should be approximately the size of a hen’s egg, and for long hair the size of a tennis ball.
4. Apply the principle of “creative chaos.”
Smooth, carefully combed hair often looks far too smoothed-out and flat. A little bit of chaos, on the other hand, can be your best friend if you’re seeking more volume. This can be achieved by styling your hair in light waves, holding it back only loosely with a hair band, or using styling foam.
