Struggling to get some body into your locks? We all know the three common methods to putting some extra height in to your do, but get it right and you can go from dull and lifeless to super glam in no time. Thanks to Trevor Sorbie we’ve got all the top tips to ensure that limp, flat tresses will soon be a thing of the past.
To prevent frizz, rough dry your hair until it’s damp (just a bit dryer than towel dried). Then add a volumising mousse to a comb and apply evenly to roots.
Using a large barrel brush, dry hair in sections. Place the brush under the hair, lifting at the roots and pull along the hair to create more volume.
TOP TIP: If you find the back of your hair always flicks up, then try drying with your eyes closed. This will allow you to feel the hair and prevent you from pulling it forward, a common mistake people make when drying whilst looking in to a mirror.
An essential tool for creating glamorous, volumised tresses and the best news? They’re actually very easy to use. Start with hair that has been washed the night before and section. Each section should be the same width as the roller. Prep by adding a serum such as Trevor Sorbie Beautiful Curls Curl Constructor (£5.10).
Take inch-long sections starting at the front of your hair working backwards. Accelerate the process by applying heat to the hair and finish by blasting with cold air to set the curls.
After removing the rollers, run hands gently through hair to create the desired ‘bounce’, and blast with hairspray.
TOP TIP: The bigger the roller you use, the softer the wave will be. Always use a bigger roller on the crown to ensure hair has a natural bounce from the top of the head.
A great and simple way to add some extra volume. Start by adding a little hairspray to the section you want to backcomb and divide in to manageable sections. Using a tease comb or soft bristled brush, push hair against itself from the mid-section, ensuring you always do so from the underside.
TOP TIP: If the hair is backcombed properly it will not damage the hair. Hold the comb like a pen and comb on a diagonal slant.
