Hair Tutorial: How to get BIG hair.

August 1

It’s no secret that I love big hair! So this month I decided to round up my favorite hair tools and products that I use to achieve dramatic volume at home, here’s how I get the look…

Step 1: Product Preparation

I begin by rough-drying my hair to 80% with my eionic hairdryer before working some volumizing mousse into my damp hair. For even distribution I use my comb to apply the product.

Step 2: Backwards Blow-dry

I give the mousse some time to absorb before taking my EIDEAL Evolution Brush and blow-drying my fringe section backwards, I love this brush as the ionized bristles really grip the hair and reduce static at the same time! Remember, it’s important to blow-dry the fringe first as this gives you more control over where the parting falls.

Tip: Slowly rotate the brush in a circular motion to tease the hair in the right direction.

Step 3: Voluptuous Volume

Now my fringe is dry, I use the end of my Tail Comb to create two separate sections, dividing the crown and the bottom. I use the technique I described in my Basic Blow-dry Tutorial to dry the bottom section, rotating my Evolution Brush to create volume as I dry. Now it’s time to dry the crown section. I really want to create some extra volume and push my hair backwards here, so I wrap my hair around the brush and push it upwards (see photo 3) to create some extra lift at the root.

Step 4: Creating Texture

Waves are the perfect way to add extra bounce, so once my hair has cooled I use my go to tool, the eCURLER to create some texture. Remember, when curling, always curl away from your face! I’ve chosen to use my medium barrel tong as I want my curls to look big and bouncy! I want to create a gritty texture to modernize the look so I wait for my hair to cool before working some dry shampoo into my roots. I wait 5 minutes for the dry shampoo to absorb before applying a misting of medium-hold hairspray to lock my curls in place.

Step 5: Teasing into Place

This style is all about the volume so, for that extra va-va-voom I use my tail comb to tease the under sections of my hair before smoothing over the top.  You might find that your hair naturally falls into your everyday parting so feel free to use some carefully placed bobby pins to keep your hair back. I want to create a sultry lift in the front section so I also tease the top before smoothing it over. Now it’s time for one final hairspray fix all over and you’re good to go!
