Volumising Hairstyles For Short Hair
Chopping those long locks into a shorter hairstyle doesn’t mean that your hair should be flat and lifeless.
Little tricks such as blowdrying your hair upside down and using a dry shampoo (on clean hair) can create instant volume in no-time. Below are just a few ways to bring some much needed volume to any short hairstyle.

If you have short bangs, give them some body with a thick curling wand. All you need to do is brush out the curls to achieve a silky-smooth hairstyle.
Give your hair a bit of a combover by creating the illusion of a thick fringe at the front of your face. This works well if you hair is already cut into an asymmetric style (shorter in the back, longer in the front). Keep everything in place by applying a pea-sized amount of mousse to dry hair.
For hair that is mostly dead-straight, focus on creating some volume at the ends. The best way to achieve this look is to blow-dry your hair upside down. As you’re drying the ends, scrunch with your hands to create instant texture.
To create Olivia Palermo’s enviable locks, part hair down the middle, and style your hair at the crown. Create some extra volume by individually heated curlers, and leave them in for at least an hour. For the natural look, carefully comb out the curls, and spritz some finishing spray for extra hold.
Create a wispy fringe by shampooing hair with a volumising treatment. To avoid any flat, lifeless hair, skip out on the conditioner. Let your hair air-dry, then apply a small amount of texturising mouse to the scalp.
For hair like Marion, use a curling wand with a thin barrel to make hair appear thicker. Remember to curl hair away from your face, and use a hairspray only at your ends.
