Bigger (Hair) is Better: 3 Ways to Create Incredible Volume on Any Budget
Posted Tuesday September 17, 2013 8:07 AM GMT
Some of our favorite A-listers turn to pricy extensions to thicken and elongate their locks. But the truth is you don’t have to receive a celebrity paycheck to afford a fuller mane at the salon … or even at home.
Ryan Nickulas of Ryan Darius Salon in NYC suggests three ways to create the voluminous coif you crave, all while keeping you under budget.
1.Go to the dark side. Jessica Biel, Reese Witherspoon and Cameron Diaz ditched their famously lighter locks for darker hues. Deepened shades create the illusion of more volume — and the upkeep is easier, too!
2.Lift at the root. Nickulas urges his clients with thinning strands to use hair fiber. It’s an easy, at-home way to create texture and grit at the root. Try the Viviscal brand. It comes in a variety of colors, possesses amazing staying power, and won’t sweat off — even at the gym!
3.Thicken the hair shaft. Oribe’s Thick Dry Finishing Spray adds instant thickness to your hair, without much effort on your end. You simply spray it in, buff it out and voila! You’ve got incredible body that’ll last all day long, and extend your second-day style.
