Goodbye limp locks! How to get voluminous hair

Long gone are the days we have to settle,

Voluminous hair is now within our reach! There are a number of things you can do to help give your hair that glamorous boost. Ladies, for those of you who have hit a brick wall with your thin lifeless locks, relax. These seven easy tips could give you the irresistible, voluminous hair you’ve always dreamt of. Our experts recommend you try a couple, or all of these things (depending on how much time you’ve got!). Are you ready…

Numero Uno

A root perm will give lift to flat hair. A body perm will give you all around waves, so your hair will have instantly more body and volume. Sadly perms are often very damaging, and you should stay clear if you’ve had previous chemical treatments. Additionally, make sure you go to a good stylist, perms can work great but they can equally leave you looking like a poodle. So take the time to find the right salon and of course think about your other options first. A perm is a hassle free, sure fire way to get volume, however it is a last resort. There are plenty of less drastic alternatives to consider (see below).


Ladies this is a general hair tip for all of you, don’t wash your hair every day. For the days you don’t wash use a dry shampoo, it works great on greasy hair, provides volume and it really, really works.

We’ve even put together a couple of our top recommendations for you: 


TIGI Rockaholic Dirty Secret Dry Shampoo

Available sizes: 300ml

The secret is you don’t have to shampoo everyday! Spray at roots to absorb excess oils, make hair smell fresh and keep it rockin’ one more night. This stuff is so funktabulous!


Matrix Dry Pulse Clean Remix Dry Shampoo

Available sizes: 54ml

Clean Remix Instant Dry Shampoo is an innovative aerosol powder that refreshes hair and absorbs oil. Create fashionable “day-after-the-night-before” looks in a snap. Provides a soft hold for any length.

3rd Time’s a Charm

One of our experts has given us a great pro trick to share, blow dry upside down. It may take some practice, but you will definitely see results as this lifts the roots and adds volume. Also use mousse and blow dry the crown area to get lift from fine hair. Try lifting your hair section by section and aim towards the scalp. It’s also important to avoid heavy conditioners, sprays, and styling products that might weigh your hair down.

The Cut Four You

The right cut can make a massive difference, so it’s important you know what to go for. Bobs will always give a thicker look, and they’re huge at the moment! Avoid heavily layered cuts, styles cut with a blunt end will give a more voluminous look.

Five Alive

Colour it. Simple. This doesn’t mean changing your hair colour, necessarily (although darker colours do tend to work better). Any hair colouring can make your hair look thicker. And highlights and lowlights when applied properly can provide fabulous dimension.

Fix Number Six

We stock a wide range of fabulous hair care for voluminous hair, and we’ve put together our top three recommendations for you.These will all leave your hair fluffier and fuller, see what works for you.
