Ramp up the volume!

If you want to switch up a mid-length hairstyle, one of the easiest ways to do it is by adding a ton of volume. Not only that, XXL 'dos are (quite literally) huge this season so now is the perfect time to jump aboard this hairstyle bandwagon! It's also a lot of fun to style, and to wear, because increased amounts of volume change the silhouette and the texture of your hair, giving you a new style to play with!

Why wait till your next major haircut to try a whole new look?

What you need:

Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT Volume Inject Mousse
Bristle brush
Advanced Hairstyle BOOST IT High Lift Creation Spray
Fine-tooth comb
Advanced Hairstyle LOCK IT Bold Control Hairspray

Step one: Although it's generally easier to whip up some extra height on a haircut with plenty of layers, a good ole rough blow-dry using Volume Inject Mousse will help add plenty of body and volume to any hairstyle. When the hair is about 85% dry, blast the rest with your head flipped upside down. It sounds silly but it works!

Step two: Once dried, brush the hair through. Apply High Lift Creation Spray to the roots then massage with your hands. This will build more height, helping to lift the hair.

Step three: If you have fine or thin hair, you might want to tease the lower layers a little, adding more High Lift Creation Spray as you go, to really get your hair looking bigger than usual.

Step four: Use your hands to create a deep side part and finger-comb the hair through to fix it into place.

Step five: Mist all over with Bold Control Hairspray and massage the roots one last time.

Happy styling!
