The next step takes place as soon as you get out of the shower when you blow dry your hair. Get it wrong, and doom your locks to lifelessness. Get it right, and you’re well on your way to fuller looking hair. Massage a generous amount of Blow Dry Lotion into your mane and work it into the strands. Blow dry your hair upside down until it’s about 80% dry. Then use a round bristled brush to pull your hair a couple of inches straight out in sections as you finish drying.

I hate to break it to you, but when fine hair is styled straight, it tends to look thin and flat. Fortunately, all it takes is trading the straightener for a curling iron to get stunning fullness. For best results, try one with a large barrel. Always use a heat protectant spray before curling to tame frizzies. Finish by running your fingers through those waves to give instant lift, whether your hair is short, long or in between you can give your hair more volume.

If you’ve been thinking about a lighter color to go with warmer weather, then go for it. Highlights are a great, if not so well-known, way to add fullness.

If you have extensions, you can use highlighter and blush to add a sun-kissed look to your new color.
