Adding some volume to your hair can be one of the simplest ways to upgrade your look. Fortunately, there are several strategies you can use to give your hair the lift and body it deserves. Here are four tips to try. 

Choose the Right Hair Products

The journey to voluminous hair begins in the shower. Try using volumizing shampoos and conditioners that are designed to add lift and body. Avoid heavy, moisturizing products that can weigh your hair down. You can also try using a light mouse after the shower. 

Blow-Dry Upside Down

When blow-drying your hair, flip your head upside down. This encourages the roots to stand away from the scalp, which naturally adds volume. Finish with a blast of cool air to set the style and add more fullness.

Experiment with Hair Rollers

Hair rollers can add incredible volume and bounce. Use them on damp hair and leave them in while you do your makeup. For a modern twist, try using Velcro rollers at the crown of your head for added lift.

Try Different Partings

Finally, changing the direction of your hair parting can lift the roots and add volume. If you usually part your hair on the left, try flipping it to the right, or vice versa.
