TEXTURE MAKES A COMBACK!
Best Body Inducing Cuts
FOR FINE HAIR
Less Is More
Whether your hair is wavy or straight – short, medium or long.
Minimal layers are key, they trick the eye into thinking hair is actually fatter than it is.
FOR MEDIUM & THICK HAIR
More Is More
Whether your hair is straight or curly – short, medium or long.
Extreme layering produces maximum volume
Best Thickening Products
The quest for volume starts with the right products.
Volumizing shampoo works great on all textures because it removes build-up which can weigh hair down. Add a styling product like gel, mousse or texture cream. Depending on your hair type, apply product; a dime amount for fine, a nickel for medium and a quarter size for thick.
Make your hair irresistibly touchable!
A lot of styling products are heat-activated to expand your texture. Start by flipping your hair over and dry the undersides first. When it is half dry flip your hair back and dry the top sections slightly. Finish by rolling the ends of your hair around a boar bristle round brush.
Get yourself rolling!
After your blow-dry, spritz hair with hairspray and pop in about 4 hot rollers. I use the T-Studio Pearl Ceramic Heated Clip Hair Setter by Remington (my b.f.f.). They are quick and easy–it comes with me to every photo shoot! Take sections of hair from the crown, wrap sections around one or two large rollers and clip them in place while you’re getting ready. Just before you walk out the door take them out and lightly rake through with your fingers and shake, shake, shake!
Enhance it, don’t overwhelm it!
Cascading Balayage is a spin on the technique that combines two or three shades of light and dark which is a very clever way of coloring hair that creates an illusion of texture! Concentrating slightly darker hues of color near the face fills in all the gaps around the hairline and creates instant fullness.
