Hi. My name is Julie Pope. I’m an in-house stylist for Unilever. I’m going to show you some tips and tricks as to how to achieve some more volume in your style. First, you want to ensure that you’re working with hair that’s slightly damp. I’m going to remoisten her hair slightly using a spritzer. After moistening the hair, I’m going to comb from the mid-shaft down so I don’t have a hard time when I’m going through the hair with the brush later.

Next, I’m going to grab my blow dryer, and I’m going to work against the growth of the hair. That way, as the hair dries, it’s going to leave some volume at the roots creating an overall voluminous style. Once you’ve gotten the hair thoroughly dry, it’s best to go back and look at your work, just taking your hands, pulling the hair back to where you want to style it. You can see the significant difference in the hair by how much volume you could achieve by going against the growth of it. Dry shampoo is an easy way to create volume. All you have to do is take some sections near the crown of the head and spray the dry shampoo directly towards the root. This is going to give you some lift and volume by absorbing oils and products that are in there. Dry shampoo, just like your wet shampoo, is meant to be lathered. Make sure you give it a nice firm shake in order to activate it and giving yourself that volume that you’re looking for.

I’m going to show you how to use Velcro rollers to achieve more volume in your everyday style. I like using a medium-sized Velcro roller in order to achieve this one. That way it helps you create the volume that you’re looking for. First, I’m going to grab a section at the top of the head, usually a couple inches back from the hairline. I’m going to take a rectangular section just using my hands. It’s about the size of my Velcro. Here’s a key hint. Make sure that you’re spraying some hair spray. It’s going to help your style last a lot longer and have memory that lasts you all day long. So, pull the hair forward. This is what we like to call over-directing. Give a nice quick spritz and then take your Velcro roller starting at the base working up. That way you can comb it nice and gently and keep it smooth. The Velcros are nice because it helps the hair stick. Gently roll the hair down, trying to keep all the hair in place.

At this point, you’re going to be happy that you pulled the hair forward. You’re going to be able to keep more volume, and you’re going to set your Velcro roller directly on top of your section. Set your style by again adding some hair spray, giving it a nice quick spritz. It’s best to leave it in for about 15 to 20 minutes. Gently lay it down and look at the volume you’ve already achieved. Shake it out. Start by working at the roots and gently work your way down with your hands. Now you know some tips and tricks that will help add volume to your style and make it last all day long.
