Right now, big, volumized hairstyles are huge – both literally and figuratively speaking. Seen on catwalks, red carpets and just about everywhere, textured XXL looks have become a trend that is set to snowball. The big question is: what's the best way to wear it?
Of course, the two main options are up or down. Then, if you consider all the different styling options out there, your head might just start to spin with all the possibilities! There are braids, bouffants, teased curls, big buns, fancy French twists... the list goes on.
To make a good hairstyle decision vis à vis big hair, the trick is to think of all these possibilities as something of an insurance plan against bad or boring hair. What that really means is that if you try the big hair trend one way and you don't like the results, you are absolutely 100% guaranteed to find a different style that you WILL like.
If you have a favorite way of styling big hair, however, cast your vote above!
The bigger, the better
Those of you with naturally curly hair have only to run a comb through your hair and fix with hairspray to ramp up the volume and create a gloriously textured, high-volume look.
For anyone with naturally straighter and/or finer tresses, you'll need to do a couple extra things. First off, blow-drying your hair upside down (with volume mousse, naturally) creates extra lift and volume from the get-go. Secondly, applying a lifting hairspray to your roots will add and fix in yet more volume. Then all you have to do is spray generously with hairspray when you're done styling to lock in your new look.
The main thing to remember is that big hair is a lot of fun to style and can be really great to wear so just enjoy playing around with this trend!
