Do you have heavy hair that falls flat around your parting? Or very fine hair that never seems to have enough volume?

Try this quick hack to create more volume quickly, without using messy sprays.

Tools and materials:

  • 2 or more hair sectioning clips
  • Hair dryer with directional nozzle
Sectioning hair

1. Section your hair

Grab a couple of hair sectioning clips.

Sectioning hair

Open the first clip and slide it under the hair on your crown, from the back towards the front.

Sectioning hair

Use the second clip to lift a section either side of your parting. 

Using more clops

2. Use more clips 

These are the areas that most often go flat, but you can use more clips to lift other parts of your hair at the same time.

The important thing is to lift the roots of your hair, wherever more volume is needed.

Adding heat

3. Add some heat

Use your hairdryer on a medium setting and direct it at the roots of your hair, below the clips, for a few minutes.

Just don’t have the hairdryer on too high a setting or blow the hot air directly into your eyes!

Letting hair cool

4. Cool down

Leave the hair to cool down before removing the clips carefully.

If you don’t have enough volume where you want it, you can replace the clips and use the hairdryer again.

Volumized hair

5. Style

Style your hair lightly with your fingers and you're done!
