It’s sometimes difficult to maintain volume at both the front and rear of your style. Especially when you don’t have a friend around to give you a helping hand. However, there are some great products and hairstyle ideas that will give you that all-over volume you’ve been looking for. The pros reveal all.
Finding an updo that gives you volume at the front and back is no easy task. ‘There are some hairstyles that boost volume, however you need to be an expert to create them. In fact, you need to learn how to style the rear sections of your hair without relying on a friend to help you out. To create all-over volume, start by backcombing
the front and crown section, then secure up into a banana chignon. This look is perfect for creating voluminous-looking locks, whatever the angle’.
Another technique to get hair full of volume is to add layers.
‘Layering enables you to create a fair amount of volume, but not always the amount you had hoped for. To boost your roots, apply a handful of volume-enhancing mousse such as the Foamer from the Volume Therapy range. After applying your product, dry hair with your head upside down to really lift the root area’.
A chunky layered fringe
can also work wonders! ‘This on-trend fringe will certainly give you volume around the front of your style. As for the rear, backcomb then spray with a strong-hold hairspray
for long-lasting volume, all day long’.
Want to avoid wearing your hair down at all costs? ‘If you don’t fancy the banana chignon, opt for the classic 60s beehive. This style is simple to create thanks to bobby pins and is a quick go-to look for those in search of volume’. Our advice:
Creating a look which features volume at both the front and rear will be extremely difficult to style regularly, unless you have a flatmate who is willing to help you out. Cut out all of the hassle and head to your nearest Jean Louis David Style Bar! © DR © Jean Louis David
