The Bigger, The Better: Secrets to Getting Your Hair Volumized to The Gods | New Hairstyle 2019

It All Starts With a Solid Blowout (Curly or Straight):

Apply a root lifter or mousse, we recommend the NuMe Root Werk, when your hair is still wet. Renowned celebrity hair stylist Harry Josh told InStyle Magazine, "You want things that contain zero moisture that promote stiffness and hardness. That's what makes it pliable and what keeps the volume going all day long."

To add some shine and eliminate frizz, it's also a good idea to apply a serum like the NuMe White Truffle Serum, primarily concentrating on the ends, not your scalp.

 

For Straight Hair:

Use a round bristle brush to blow dry section by section.

PRO TIPS

  1. Add product right before you plan to start drying.
  2. Make sure to dry the roots first. Do so by flipping your head upside down which is great for boosting height from the jump.
  3. Blow dry your hair opposite the direction of your natural part and try sectioning hair with parts that go from ear to ear, rather than forehead to crown.
  4. Just glide the round brush down as you dry. Only start to twist the brush when it reaches the ends. To see this technique in action, check out this tutorial from San Francisco based hair stylist and blogger, Silvia Reise.
  5. When the section is dry, twist it toward your head then blast one more time with the dryer, slowly pulling the round brush down and out when you're done. YouTube beauty guru and cosmetologist Alexandrea Garza has a detailed play by play in this tutorial on how to perfect this method using the NuMe Signature Hair Dryer.

 

For Curly Hair:

When hair is still wet, flip your head over and separate curls by raking your ringers through. Gently wrap in a towel to remove excess wetness. Remove the towel and after applying mousse, root lifter, or the NuMe Blah to Bouncy Blow Dry Cream (and a serum if your ends are prone to dryness), dry with a diffuser attachment on medium to high heat but low speed.

PRO TIPS

  1. Get the hair bone dry for maximum volume.
  2. Once hair is fully dry, gently spray the curls all over with a heat protectant such as the NuMe Watch Me Werk. Then use a curling wand like our Classic Curling Wand to define and lift curls.


How to Add Even More Volume:

Use Hair Rollers

While they might seem old school, hair rollers can definitely give you a lift. Wrap the top half of your hair in sections with velcro hair rollers, blow dry each section briefly then let them sit for at least 15 minutes (longer if you've got the time!)

 

Tease that Mane

While "teasing" is the most commonly used term, backcombing is a technique that delivers similar results but causes less damage to the hair. While teasing involves moving the brush up and down, backcombing is just pushing the hair down.

When hair is completely dried and styled, create a section at the top starting at your crown. Spray underneath the section of hair at the bottom cose to the root with a firm hold hairspray like the NuMe Freeze Please Finishing Hairspray. Then gently use a teasing brush to brush hair down. Once the top section is fully lifted, repeat with side sections.

Then go through all of the hair and very gently run the teasing brush through to make the look natural. YouTube beauty influencer Kelly Strack has an incredibly easy tutorial for adding volume with back combing here.

 

Get a Trim

This might seem like a no brainer but it's important to keep up with regular haircuts if you want to keep that hair as high as possible. Sometimes hair loses volume when it's time for a cut. This is especially true with curly hair. If your curls are limp, try getting the split ends cut. It will immediately add bounce and make your hair feel less weighed down.

 

Use a Mask

Deep conditioning masks like our Mane Goals Deep Repair Mask can restore and repair damaged hair. Using a mask on a weekly to bi-weekly basis keeps hair healthy and strands invigorated.

 

Add Extensions

Whether you find extensions you can slip on or clip in at the convenience of your home, or visit a salon to do the job, this is a sure fire way to make your hair appear fuller and longer.

 

Like any hair hacks, adding volume with certain techniques can take practice, but if you're armed with the right products, it's definitely doable.
