  • Tools for Creating a Full Head of Hair

    Dry shampoo, styling comb, volumising spray, and hairspray

  • Step-by-step Instruction: How to Create a Full Head of Hair

    1. Hair must be completely dried to begin creating a fuller looking head of hair. You may want to use dry shampoo to produce proper manageability.

    2. Apply volumising spray to your hair before teasing it section by section using a styling comb.

    3. Then brush the teased hair carefully and apply hairspray to maintain the created volume.

    Actress Holland Roden (see the photo above) added an extra-large quiff to her otherwise undone long hair. Only the hair on the crown of her head is teased while the rest of the hair is allowed to fall without much styling. To create the quiff a section of hair must be held up and warmed with a blow-dryer before it is teased. This section is then rolled into a quiff and secured with hair grips. A little hairspray keeps the quiff in shape.

    In his video, hair expert Armin Morbach, shows more of the many methods to create a full head of hair. Check out our photo gallery for hairstyles that make your hair appear fuller.

    The faux bob gives the impression of fuller hair because the hair is folded under to form a double layer. Naya Rivera used extra-gloss hairspray for alluring shine.

    Styling: Create a parting and lightly tease your hair. Gather your hair to a low ponytail and pull the hair band toward the ponytail end. Then fold the ponytail under so that your hair forms a loop and secure the ponytail end with hair grips.

    Curls are a very effective way to add volume to your hair. Jennifer Hawkins has swept her well-defined curls over her left shoulder.
