Get Big-Body Hair With Little Effort
For spring, hair is full and loose. Get the look with ease by using the right technique.
Short to Shoulder-Length Hair
Good news: You have the easiest hair type for this style, says Anthony Cristiano, a Chicago- based runway stylist. Just air-dry
or blow-dry, tousle, and go.
- If your hair is very fine, use a light volumizing spray on wet strands. For slightly longer lengths, spritz a lifting spray on damp roots.
- Set your dryer on a warm or medium heat setting and lightly blow your hair upward. The key: Go against the direction of growth, to build body.
- Gently lift hair with your fingers. And skip setting the style with heavy products. If you have fine hair that falls flat fast, however, mist on a light hair spray, like L’Oréal Paris Elnett Satin Hairspray ($15 at drugstores), a favorite of runway pros.
