There are many perks to having fine hair: It dries faster, you don’t shed as much, and you don’t run through hair products as often as your thicker-haired counterparts. However, its easy maintenance comes with a price: a major lack of volume.
Fortunately, there are several hassle-free ways to fake fuller strands. Inspired by a recent hairstyle on Bravo's Project Runway, TRESemmé Global Stylist Justine Marjan has created an effortlessly chic ponytail by using a couple of easy volumizing hacks. Follow the step-by-step breakdown below to recreate this hairstyle.
First, curl the entire head with a one-inch curling iron, then add hairspray.
Next, apply TRESemmé TRES Two Extra Hold Hair Mousse all over. Pro tip: Massage the product into roots for an added lift.
Now, here’s how you can take your ponytail to the next level and really amp up the volume: Split your hair into two equal sections by creating a part just below the crown. Gather the top half into a ponytail with a smoothing brush and secure with an elastic.
Grab the bottom half and brush it into your existing ponytail — combine the two halves using the same elastic. This double ponytail hack will help give the illusion of fuller strands.
Secure your voluminous ‘do with TRESemmé Compressed Micro Mist Hair Spray Boost Hold Level 3 to make sure your hair won’t fall flat throughout the day.
Finish off your look with a bit of flair by adding a cute, on-trend hair accessory, such as a scrunchie.
