Anyone with fine hair will understand the pain when it comes to creating a voluminous hairstyle – it’s just not going to happen!
Rather than slaving away in front of the mirror for hours, create these easy hairstyles which are quick and effortless.
Pancaking dutch braids
Do your braids look flat and lifeless on fine hair? This simple trick creates the illusion of a thicker braid without the need for extensions. All you need to do is tug at the sides before securing with an elastic or safety pin.
Create big curls by sleeping in rollers the previous night. Simply section hair and use the rollers to keep everything in place. The next morning, take out the rollers, comb through your hair carefully, and apply a finishing spray to keep everything lasting longer.
Lots of volume
Rather than working on your ends, focus all of your attention on the roots of your hair. Use a texturising mousse and apply to hair which has been towel-dried. Then simply blow-dry on a cool temperature, and style hair as normal!
A classic topknot is a great way to give your hair a boost of volume without the use of costly extensions. Tie hair in a high ponytail, then back-comb with a fine brush. Hair should appear voluminous and fluffy, then all you need to do is twist hair into a bun and secure into the elastic. Don’t worry about this hairstyle losing its shape throughout the day – fine hair will stay in place!
