As seen on countless runways earlier this year, one of this fall's biggest hair trends is just that, big. We're talking voluminous styles with large tumbling waves, retro-inspired touches and a whole lot of teasing. It's a wonderfully simple way to update your style without resorting to a radical new cut and it's also very wearable. You can keep things tame with a subtle bouffant for work then switch to glamour puss mode with some sizable waves on your own time. Like photos on cereal boxes however, those are only serving suggestions because the possibilities are more or less endless.

Whether you want to go for a beehive or stick to a down 'do, the great thing about this trend is that anyone can do it with the right products on hand.

Size matters

If you have naturally thick hair, it's really just a question of using a volumizing spray and a curling iron to add movement and expand your style. Spray dry hair with L'Oréal Paris Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray then curl your hair with a medium-large iron. Tease the roots, smooth your style down and respray all over to finish.

If your hair doesn't lend itself so well to cotton-candy levels of volume, you'll need to start the styling process in the shower. A volumizing shampoo and conditioner can make a world of difference, making hair appear and feel fuller. Then, once you've towel-dried it to remove excess moisture, scrunch some Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse evenly throughout and rough dry. When your hair is about 85% dry, flip your head upside down and blast the roots. This will instantly lift your locks and make it easier to build more volume with further styling.
