How to Get More Volume in Your Hair

Have you ever wondered how to get more volume in your hair? Today we’re going to show you how to achieve that thicker, fuller look for your wedding day – and beyond – with a few of our favorite tutorials. I have always admired voluminous hair in magazines and photo shoots wishing that I, too, had lustrous, voluminous hair. Then I realized something: I can keep wishing for more volume or I can make it happen. Voluminous hair is the result of a few key essentials like a good diet (high protein can lead to healthier, thicker hair with less breakage), plenty of H20, proper blow-drying techniques (here’s a video to get you started), plenty of hairspray, and abundant amounts of teasing, product-applying, and styling. If you’re opting for a bridal veil alternative, keep in mind that your hair will have nothing to hide behind. If you don’t want your hair to go from fabulous to flat as you walk down the aisle, be sure to give your hair plenty of lift. So, now, let’s show you how to get more volume in your hair with these tutorials PLUS a few hand-picked bridal headbands perfect for sporting your voluminous new ‘do. Enjoy!

You may remember the next image from our braided hairstyles round-up a few months back. It is from a fabulous hair tutorial we spotted via Keiko Lynn which shows you how to get a pretty up-do with braids and plenty of volume:

Although she has an unfair advantage (her hair is gorgeous to begin with), she styles it from this…

It looks beautiful! And, as a side note, I’m totally loving the hot pink lipstick.

If a braid isn’t your style of choice, how about a messy side ponytail? This tutorial via A Cup of Jo (photography by Jamie Beck) shows you an easy-to-do side ponytail:

Or, try a voluminous puffy bun which takes your hair from flat to fabulous in seconds! This tutorial (below) is via Extra Petite and offers a full video tutorial!



And, for brides with shorter-length hair, learn how to get more volume on top with a video tutorial from The Small Things Blog. I recently discovered this blog and love its easy-to-follow video tutorials – always a plus!
