Put a little spring in your style this season with volumizing hair tips from Krista Beahm, stylist at the Patrick McIvor Color Studio in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania.
Step 1: Shampoo hair twice to remove build up.
Step 2: Apply conditioner only to the ends of the hair and comb through (prevents hair from getting weighed down).
Step 3: Towel dry excess water (pat dry, don’t run towel against hair, it opens the cuticle and creates frizz).
Step 4: Apply root lifter to the roots and comb through to the ends.
Step 5: Pre-dry hair 80% by blowdrying in the opposite direction than it falls.
Step 6: Section hair and dry with a round brush, brushing hair up to create volume (looks extra big at first, but it calms down).
Step 7: Spray with hairspray.
Step 8: Lightly run fingers through to adjust volume and spray again.
To get the full-volume looks sported lately by celebrities such as Kelly Osbourne and Scarlett Johansson, Krista recommends using the following products – Matrix Amplify Volumizing Shampoo, Conditioner and Root Lifter, and Vavoom ShapeMAKER Medium-Hold Hairspray.
