5 Ways to Get More Volume in Your Hair

Flat hair can be a real burden and generally a frustration. There are a variety of reasons why your hair might look flat, from having naturally thin hair to having heavy hair that weighs your hair down on top, but there are solutions to the problem.

Hair with a little volume is typically more flattering. To achieve volume in your hair, try these five methods…

1. Blow Dry Upside Down

One of the easiest ways to get more volume into your hair is to blow dry it upside down. In drying your hair the right way up, typically you concentrate the heat down the shaft of the hair, making it sit flat to your head. Instead, if you blow-dry it upside down, you will be lifting your roots away from your scalp to create instant volume. This is ideal for rough drying, but you can spend the last couple of minutes drying your hair the right way up to achieve your desired style.

2. Switch your Parting up

Your hair will naturally start to sit flatter at the roots as the day goes on as it settles into your style. In addition, if you wear your parting in the same place most days, essentially you are training it to sit this way and it will naturally sit flatter on your parting. To instantly create more volume, switch up your parting on those pesky flat hair days.

3. Use Volume Boosting Products

Sometimes our hair needs an extra helping hand. From nourishing and smoothing conditioners, to texture creating balms, we use other products daily to help control our style, so why not consider introducing a volume-boosting product too? We love the Pure Abundance Hair Potion by Aveda, which can be applied to damp or dry hair to add impressive volume and texture.

4. Sleep in a Bun

This method might sound unusual, but it’s actually really effective. To wake up to amazing volume, try popping your hair up in a bun after washing it in the evening. Do this while your hair is still damp, and go for a high and loose bun. Use a scrunchy or similar to hold in place to avoid getting hairband lines in your hair. By doing this, your hair will dry in a position so that it’s lifted off your scalp, so when you take it down, your roots will stand up a little to create impressive volume.

5. Use Dry Shampoo

While some dry shampoos aren’t great for your hair, using one with natural ingredients and of premium quality is a great way to boost your roots. If you don’t wash your hair every day, dry shampoo will help remove any excess oil that can weigh it down and give your hair a much-needed lift. Try the Shampure Dry Shampoo by Aveda to revive your hair using 99.8% naturally derived ingredients.

5 Simple Ways to Refresh your Hair for Spring

Let’s face it, we can all start to feel in a bit of a rut with our style every once in a while. From time to time, it just feels right to mix things up a little, but when you’re in the mood for a revamp, it can be tricky to know what to do to refresh your look and boost your spirits. Here are five simple ways to refresh your hair for spring…

1. Introduce sun kissed ends

Balayage has been popular for quite some time now, and it’s clear to see why. Replicating the natural tones you might find in sun kissed hair, balayage just seems to life your entire look and makes your skin glow. In addition, it’s a great way to subtly update your style without going for a complete colour overhaul. Try sun kissed ends in warm tones to nail this season’s hottest look.

2. Try a half updo

Sometimes a cut or colour isn’t the answer, and all you need to do is try styling your hair a little differently to soothe your itch for change. This spring, try a pretty half updo with a laid back topknot. Wear the length of your hair wavy, and scoop the top section back. Twist into a topknot, secure with pins and tease a few stands out, for a soft and pretty style that gets your hair away from your face for the warmer weather.

3. Go short

Shorter hair can be really refreshing for the summer months, making your hair feel lighter and easier to manage. Consider a blunt bob in 2019 for a style overhaul. This look isn’t for the faint hearted as it features angular lines, but your stylist can help you find the perfect length and finish for your face shape.

4. Invest in a conditioning treatment

Sometimes all we need is a little pick-me-up, rather than a new style. Over the winter months, your hair can suffer, becoming dry and brittle because of the cold weather and indoor heating. If you like your style, but feel like it needs a bit of help, invest in a conditioning treatment to reintroduce a healthy and glossy shine, or to tidy up split ends, book in for a trim.

5. Introduce a fringe for longer locks

If you have long hair and you want to keep your length, a great way to update your look is with a fringe. For the spring, consider going for a feathered fringe that’s thicker and a little longer to the sides, and lighter to the centre. This style looks really striking with long, wavy or curly hair
