    Eva Longoria Long Hair With lots of Volume

    Creating More Volume in Your Hairstyle

    Are you suffering from celebrity hair envy? Do you stare in jealousy every time Eva Longoria flips her silky strands in that L’Oreal commercial? Do you long for Blake Lively’s effortlessly sexy strands? We’ve all been there; staring in the mirror at our flat, lifeless hair feeling more like a wet blanket than a woman. Don’t let celebrity envy or even thick hair envy control your life anymore! You can star in your own shampoo commercial every day by following some simple styling tips to add volume to your hair.

    Be a Tease  

    You can achieve volume without ruining your luscious strands. Instead of teasing your hair with a comb, apply a volumizing style product like mousse to the roots just above the ears and then dry your hair upside down. Gravity will take it from there as it weights your hair downwards away from the scalp. Once dry, flip your hair back, and voila, instant volume!

    Be Bodacious

    Want hair that looks effortlessly sexy? Opt for hair that is sleek on top but contains lots of volume on the side. To achieve this look, loosely roll the ends of your hair to give a texturized effect. To make this hairstyle a little less Bridget Bardot, only tease a few random spots instead of all over.

    Be Dramatic

    Straight hair used to be all the rage, but now it’s time to get a little kinky! Use hot rollers or curl your hair to add some wave and body to your hairstyle. Instead of curling your entire head, simply create curls on the outer layer of your hair for a carefree effect. To get the look of floating curls that are full of volume, flip your head upside down and run a large-tooth comb through the underside of your hair.

    Be Edgy

     Are you craving more permanent volume in your hair? Opt for a haircut that adds layers. The uneven strands will add movement and body to your hair. Interested in a hair color change perhaps? Add lowlights in just the top layers of your hair to create the illusion of lift and movement.

    Be Proactive

    Minor changes to your hair routine can create added volume as well. First start with a thickening shampoo like Paul Mitchell Lemon Sage Thickening Shampoo. It will add moisture to your hair without weighing it down. Once you’ve washed your hair, work a volumizing product like Amplify Volumizing System Root Lifter by Matrixinto your wet strands and allow your hair to air dry about 80% before using a blow dryer. Pull strands up and out or flip your head over for added volume. For the simplest trick to adding volume, part your hair opposite from its natural part (which is easier to do with wet hair). The change in part will automatically add lift and give you a fresh look.
