1. For frizzy hair and flyaways

Here’s another great hair hack I like to do for frizzy hair. 

Taming hair with a toothbrush

To tame the frizz and flyaways, I spray some hairspray onto a toothbrush. And, I just run it through my hair. The soft bristles of the toothbrush will make those little baby hairs lay flat against your head.

This is also great if you ever have a high pony and you want to comb the flyaways around the top.

Flat hair

4. For flat hair

If my hair is ever feeling flat, especially around the top of my head, here’s a little trick I like to do.

Clipping up bangs

Grab your bangs, pull them up, and clip them with a little metal clip. 

Applying heat to bangs

This looks a little silly, but now take a hair dryer and apply a little bit of heat for 8-10 seconds. When you take the clips out, your bangs will have a bit more body. It lifts your hair and gives it a bit more volume.

5. For more volume around the crown

Here’s a trick for whenever you want more volume around the crown of your head. 

Applying heat to roots of hair

Take a brush and brush your hair up into a little poof. Take a hairdryer and apply a little heat for 8-10 seconds. Just go around your whole head, poofing your hair and heating it up. 

Comparing both sides of hair on head

Compared to the other side of my head, look at the lift we’re getting just from this simple little hack!

Lifeless bangs

6. Straight, lifeless bangs

This hack is for whenever you want to give your straight, lifeless bangs a bit of shape. 

Clipping hair in shape of curtain bangs

For this, all you have to do is actually put your hair in the shape of curtain bangs and pin them to your head.

Applying heat to hair with hair straightener

Once they’re pinned, grab a hair straightener and apply some heat to your bangs so that they keep that swooped shape.

Clipping up bangs

Once your bangs are heated, spray them with some hairspray.

Curtain bangs

When you take the clips out, you have some lovely curtain bangs. These will stay all day and just give your hair a really lovely and pretty shape.

Sparse hairline

7. For a sparse hairline

This is a little trick I use when I put my hair in a high pony. As you can see my hairline is a little bit sparse in some areas.

Filling in sparse hairline

A way you can fill this in is by using eyeshadow and an angled brush. I’m just making small strokes and going in the direction of my hairline. This is just going to fill in those spots and make your hairline look a bit more full.

    I second Vivian! I like Loreal! I spray it right on the sparse areas. Try a shade a bit lighter than your roots!
