Tips to Getting Volume in Your Hair

Volume 101: How to Trick Your Hair Into Thinking It's Fuller Plus More With Joh Bailey

In this week's episode of Australia's Next Top Model the girls got to play around in pink paint and strut their stuff in Sydney's Strand Arcade wearing outfits made from recycled materials. For the latter "Fashionless Waste" catwalk, some of the models sported crimped 'dos so we got on the phone to the show's lead stylist, TRESemmé's Joh Bailey, to talk more wearable ways of getting va va voom volume!

If someone has fine hair, what are the best ways that they can inject volume into it? There are a couple of things you can do:
1. Always blow dry using a large round brush and blow-dry against the natural hair direction. Blow-dry from the top of the hair at the centre part and flip the blow-dried section over to the other side of the head as you keep working. This helps the hair work against its natural inclination to fall flat.
2. You can also spray the hair all over with

More from Joh . . .If we're looking to boost volume, what should we avoid? Don’t use too much product as this will always weigh the hair down. If you want to finish with hairspray, use a water-free one such as
<product target="_blank" href="http://www.tresemme.com.au/Products/Salon-Styling/TRES-Two-Extra-Hold-Hair-Spray/">TRESemmé TRES Two</product> ($7.99), as they're extra light. Avoid taking short cuts and “wash and go” hair, as unfortunately for most people that doesn’t mean volume.

/break]What about if someone has too much volume? Blow-drying hair straight can help with this. You need to try and not add too much height as you dry the hair. Then use a straightening iron to make the hair literally as flat as possible.
