When volumizing shampoos and sprays aren't cutting it, here are a few ways to give your hairstyle a lift.
If you shower at night, add volume by morning by sleeping with your hair in a high bun. Work a bit of gel into your roots -- something with a light hold that won't feel too crunchy -- and then pull hair into a ponytail that sits on the very top of your head. Loosely twist it into a bun and pin in place. In the morning take hair down and shake it loose. If hair is still damp, finish drying with a blow dryer, being careful not to touch your roots too much: The oils from your hands can add weight to hair that you just spent all night lifting.
With a round brush, start at the roots and lift each section straight up into the air. You should focus the air from your dryer up the hair shaft, toward the ceiling. By blowing the hair in the opposite direction than it normally grows, you're adding volume, which will give you beautiful hair. When the brush reaches the ends of your hair, change direction and start blowing down as you wind the hair on the brush. Basically, you're adding lift and volume on the way up, and shine on the way down.
If hair is limp mid-day, perk it back up with this tip. Take small sections of hair -- starting with the hair in front of your ear -- and lift toward the ceiling. Spritz the root with hair spray, let it dry for a few seconds, and then blast it with hot air from your blow dryer. Move on to a section right on top of the one you just styled, and repeat. Do this only to the front-most section of hair that frames the face, since that's what people notice most. By starting at the bottom of your hair and working your way up toward the crown, you're creating a base for each section to rest on, which gives beautiful hair volume.
