Trend Alert: Huge Hair on the Runway!

The hugeness is real.

The trend that we are affectionately calling “Huge Hair” has been spotted on the runway and we can’t look away. This style is giving us major Troll Doll meets 60’s supermodel vibes. We love a good avant garde hairstyle and think it could make a fun halloween or photoshoot look. Volume is something that most women desire but can be a little tricky to achieve without the right products or technique. If huge hair isn’t your cup of tea on a regular basis (we are with you) then we’ve also got the 411 on how to achieve major volume in a more wearable fashion:

While it would be great if one could achieve this look on any given morning with a few sprays of hairspray and a tease here and there, we know there’s more going on. This look was most likely achieved with a lot of added hair extensions or a wig. Either way, hairspray still plays a major role in the creation of huge hair.

The volume in this look is also paired with an application of gel at the root to create a strong separation between the hair and the face. Adding this buffer with a gel consistency adds more volume to the rest of the hair. This look turned heads down the runway and the volume is out of this world.

How to Achieve Lots of Volume for an Everyday Look

If you want a voluminous hairstyle for work, a day out on the town or a fun night out, then there are a few products that will make a huge difference. Whichever product you choose to use, teasing your hair after will help maintain the look.

Dry Shampoo

Dry shampoo is the easiest product to use for automatic volume and body. Whether you just washed your hair or it’s been a couple days, dry shampoo will give you immediate lift and texture to maintain volume. Use a healthy dose of Dove Refresh+Care Volume & Fullness Dry Shampoo along the root of your hair. Don’t forget to spray in different sections of your scalp. If you only spray at your part then you’re missing out on a lot more volume.

Hairspray

Hairspray is the obvious go to when trying to achieve volume, and for good reason. When looking for a good hairspray for volume, you want to look for something that has a strong hold but is also flexible. If your hairspray doesn’t have a little movement and give to it then you’re going to have a stiff and unnatural finish. Bed Head by TIGI Full of It Volume Hairspray will keep your hair full and intact but with flexibility too.

Styling Spray

This product isn’t the key to full-blown volume but it’s a good tool to use to prep your hair before styling. Spray some S Factor by TIGI Body Booster before blow-drying your hair to give your hair extra body. The spray will help give volume and hold to your roots so once your hair is dry it will have more body to work with come styling time.
