BIG HAIR ESSENTIALS

We told you: hairspray is the real deal for big hair. Choose one with next-level hold to pump up the volume. Here are your must-haves:

STEP 1

FLIP UPSIDE DOWN

Your big hair boosting tricks should begin when you’ve already dried and styled your strands. That means any bouncy curls or beachy waves should be in place. Then, tip your head upside down and mist hairspray from root to tip, before flipping locks back and giving your mane an extra spritz through the lengths.

SPRAY UPWARDS

Next, tilt the hairspray nozzle upwards, so it’s pointing up the hair shaft – never down. This easy switch ensures locks get a lift, and this lift has plenty of flexible hold.

STEP 3

MASSAGE THE ROOTS

By now, your hair will be pumped with volume. However, if you want to keep turning it up, mist hairspray onto fingertips, and gently massage the roots, lifting as you go. Once you’re done, gently smooth the lengths of hair with a soft-bristled brush. Add a few extras spritzes of spray where needed, then go. Big hair, don’t care.
