Five ways to fake fuller hair

You always want what you can't have, except for thick hair, which every girl dreams of having! If you don't have it, fake it. Read on to learn how!

Opt for a hairstyle that's right for your type

The first step to giving the impression of fuller hair is to figure out your hair type and to get your hair cut in a style that will accentuate what you have naturally. Identify whether you have fine or thin hair to begin with and take it from there. Overlaying your hair can cause it to look limp and lifeless, where as a pixie or blunt bob can really help to give life to your hair.

Reach for the curler

Ever had curly hair envy? Don't bejealous, grab that curler and max out your hair's natural volume by creating big and bouncy curls. Brushing out your curls and applying a texturising spray will give you a volume boost to make other girls jealous of. So that's how they do!

The secret's in the blow-dry

You'd be amazed at how much of a difference a proper blow-dry can make! When blow-drying your hair, dry it loosely first to get your locks to 70% dry before going in with a full blow-dry. Use a round brush to grab your hair, raising the brush at your hair line before running it down the lengths of your hair to add volume. Use a holding spray post-drying to keep your locks looking shiny and in place for the rest of the day.

Go easy on the styling products

Styling products are great, but going overboard on the serum, oil or gel will only serve to weight your hair down, so apply your products in moderation. You really only need a coin sized amount of product and only go for those that help to boost volume. Reducing the number of times you shampoo your locks per week can also help to give your hair the appearance of fullness.

What a difference highlights make

Dying your hair lighter actually helps to push hair shafts open, which can increase the overall thickness of your locks. Try not to go overboard on the bleach though as too much dying will only serve to dry out and damage your hair in the long run.
