The Hottest Hairstyles for Winter -- Minus the Usual Styling Damage
Straight hair, curls, waves -- all cute, all requiring major work with hot tools. But you don't have to sacrifice your hair's health to wear the latest trends. We'll show you how
VolumeGone are the days of the '60s beehive and teased crowns a la Amy Winehouse. The chic look of the contemporary times is "realistic volume," says Danilo. "It's volume that looks doable and soft -- not like what you would see on the runway." He says it's crucial to build volume on conditioned hair, so start by prepping the hair with shampoo and conditioner that can help repair damage, like Pantene Advanced+ Keratin Repair Shampoo and Conditioner, $7.99 each.
Then Danilo recommends spritzing a leave-in conditioning on damp hair. "It seems redundant but the extra conditioner is helpful." To aid the volume, use a root lift spray, like Pantene Fine Hair Solutions Root Lifter Spray Gel, $3.99. "I find it phenomenal. It has a little bit of tack and texture, but it leaves the hair shiny, touchable, and with three times the volume."
If you want curly volume, you can toss your hair up into hot rollers for a quick fix. Danilo says hot rollers are really easy to use since all you have to do is "set your hair in the rollers, let them cool, brush them out, and voilà it's remarkable how effective rollers are. Plus, it's less damaging than fussing with a curling iron or blow dryer."
