Voluminous hairstyles are always on trend, from Hollywood waves on the red carpet to full-bodied styles on the runway. In short, they're pretty much guaranteed to look effortlessly chic!

For anyone with especially fine or flyaway-prone hair, or if those of you looking to give your regular style a boost, check out our tips below to get flowing, full-bodied locks in no time!

The cut

Your haircut could be weighing your hair down and consequently flattening any volume on top. To get the best shape, consider going a bit shorter so that the ends aren't so heavy.

Preparation

Using a volume-boosting shampoo and conditioner can help to enhance your hair's natural shape from the get-go. If you've been struggling to combat limp locks, try it and see!

Protect your strands

When heat styling voluminous hair, protecting it is essential. Damaged hair is more likely to appear flat and lifeless, so make sure to apply a thermal protectant before you begin.

Tips and tricks

When blow-drying, flip your head upside down and focus the airflow on your roots for the last 10% of your blowout.

Teasing your hair is one of the easiest ways to add volume, so apply plenty of volume-enhancing spray, then lift the hair and tease it from behind with a fine-tooth comb. Going against the grain of the hair will also help you to achieve more bold, textured looks.

Finally, it may seem like a no brainer but it bears repeating: keep your style in shape with lashings of strong-hold finishing spray.

There you have it, volume-filled hair is all yours!
