SALON SECRETS – 3 SIMPLE TECHNIQUES FOR CREATING BODY IN FINE HAIR
Fine hair doesn’t have to be a flop. We share 3 simple techniques for creating root lift to boost volume and body. With small changes to the way you approach fine hair you can create the lift that doesn’t come naturally. Over the years we have seen many customers who are frustrated with fine hair. We encourage them not to despair and to embrace small changes that can often transform the look and, more importantly, how they feel about their hair.
Here are 3 simple salon secrets for root lift, creating the foundations for full-bodied hair.
Start by prepping your hair. Wash and condition your hair with the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. Squeeze the excess water out of your hair with a towel. Hair should be damp but not dripping wet.
Spritz a couple of pumps of Ogario London Styling Mist for Natural Hold and Volume. The super-light mist can be sprayed above the head to fall on your hair, without leaving any residue or stickiness, even on very fine hair. Blow dry as normal, ensuring you don’t over dry the hair. Hair should still be warm when you apply any of these techniques.
1 Root roll
We love Velcro rollers for building body. Apply rollers at an angle to make the roots sit up. Four Velcro rollers should be enough, two at the crown and one at each side. Once the rollers are in place, use the hairdryer for a quick blast of heat, let the hair cool and gently remove the rollers. Heat changes the hair structure and when the hair cools the lift should hold.
2 Body brush
Take a section of hair where you want to create lift, place the brush at the end of the hair, roll down to roots. Blast the root area with the hairdryer for a few seconds, leave to cool and gently remove the brush.
3 Back comb
Using a fine toothcomb, gently back-comb the hair at the crown or the sides, wherever you want to create lift. Don’t go right to the roots, position the comb about half an inch away, ensuring you back-comb in small sections, being as gentle as possible.
Using the Ogario London Styling Mist for Natural Hold and Volume will help hold the body you’ve created. If you would like further advice, please get in touch or take a look at our product recommendations by hair type/hair solution.
