How to Add Volume to Fine Hair

Get Your Fine Hair to Work With You (Instead of Falling Flat)

Superfine hair that falls flat every time you try to add a bit of texture to it can be a real pain, especially for those with high hair ambitions. But you don't have to suffer with limp, lackluster strands. There are things you can do to improve your style in a way that's specific for your hair type. Stylist Vanessa Fernandez from the Butterfly Studio Salon in New York City says that it's all about volume-centric products. "I always suggest washing the hair at night with a volumizing shampoo," she says. As for conditioner, only use a lightweight one, like Pantene Pro-V Fine Hair Solutions Volume Conditioner ($9).

For styling, Fernandez recommends a solid blow-dry as your base. "The trick is using a dollop of volumizing mousse, like Shu Uemura's Ample Angora ($38) and predrying the hair well," she says. Focus the mousse on your roots and not your ends to add volume instead of weight. Looking to add a little wave? Fernandez suggests braids. "Create three braids by splitting the hair into three sections: one on each side and the last one in the middle-back," she says. Braid each section and leave them in to form slightly beachy waves. "This helps create a base," Fernandez explains. This way, the extra texture is a great jumping off point for other styles, turning your less-than-lustrous locks into hair to envy.
