Sexy Hair: Get More Volume Now
Could you do with a little lift? Here are a couple of secret techniques to get this season’s sexy volume.
Get highlights or lowlights: hair usually has more body when it’s coloured and sometimes ‘lift’ and volume.We have created a colouring technique known as dimensional hair colour. When hair is monochromatic, it appears flatter. When you add colour dimensions to hair, it gives the perception of lift. As with an optical illusion, your eyes perceive movement even where it might not exist. By placing panels of colour to hair to enhance the haircut we can create texture and body.
Use root volumisers: These are products designed to lift hair at the scalp. They come in mousse and spray versions and you place the product directly onto the roots of towel-dried hair, lifting with your fingers as you apply.
Set with Velcro Rollers: A few strategically placed velcro rollers will give your hair lots of volume. After hair is washed and blow-dried curve one-inch sections of the hair you want lifted around the roller (small rollers for a slight lift and large for a higher lift). Three or four rollers should do the trick, leave them in for five to ten minutes, remove and arrange newly lifted hair with your fingers.
hot tip for long lasting volume !
try using crimpers, takes sections through the interior of the hair cut and crimp the roots using a little spray to create a firm texture.Next brush out the crimpping to create full roots that act like padding through the hair cut.The rest of the hair lays over the crimpped sections hiding the padding but leaving your hair looking full and thick and with long lasting volume.
