How to Get Fluffy Hair or 90s Volume at Home

It's time to embrace the fluffiness!

If you’ve scrolled through TikTok or Instagram lately for hair inspo, you may have noticed one common thing: Fluffy hair is everywhere. No, seriously. This voluminous ’90s-inspired look has completely taken over the internet, but we can’t complain. We mean, who wouldn’t want to have effortlessly styled, voluminous hair?

We’re breaking it down from what exactly fluffy hair is to how to get fluffy hair in three different ways. Keep scrolling to learn all about the revival of this style.

What is Fluffy Hair?

Learn all about this iconic ’90s-inspired look that’s back stronger than ever.

What Makes Fluffy Hair Stand-Out

Fluffy hair is that perfect voluminous texture, which isn’t messy but slightly more textured than a typical, perfectly smooth blow-out. This look has been spotted by celebrities, models, and even our favorite influencers. When achieving this style, having layers makes it easier to get that extra dose of volume you want.

A variation of this style has also gained so much popularity with women who have curly and natural hair. People with these hair types can embrace this trend with minimal effort simply by brushing out their strands.

How to Get Fluffy Hair

Learn how to achieve the iconic 90s fluffy hair in three different ways.

1. Blow-Dry Brush

This is such a useful tool!

Over the past year, blow-dry brushes have become huge! This tool dries your hair while adding extra volume with a frizz-free finish. All you have to do is split your hair into layers and brush small to medium sections of each layer until dry. For more texture, flip the sections of hair inwards and outwards at the ends for a variety.

To enhance the volume in your hair, start the look by using the right shampoo and conditioner set. We love TRESemmé Fiber Full Volume Shampoo and Conditioner because it adds light hydration and grip, making your hair easier to style.

2. Rollers for Fluffy Hair

Set your fluffy hair with rollers.

Hair rollers are the secret weapon for flawless, fluffy hair. There are a wide variety of rollers, so feel free to experiment with whichever type you’re most comfortable with. However, the key to that “I just had a blowout” feeling is to set the hair while it’s hot.

You can also get the look using an air-dry. Start by lightly drying your hair and wet-set with Velcro or silicone rollers to enhance your natural curl pattern. Set the blow drier on cool and apply it to each roller. Once your curling is done, set it with a hair spray like Bed Head by TIGI Hard Head Hair Spray or TRESemmé Volumizing Hair Thickening Spray for extra hold and no frizz!

3. Brushed-Out Curls

Natural fluffiness is here to stay.

Achieving fluffy hair this way is extremely easy! While your hair is still wet, apply a frizz cream, like Suave Smooth Performer Anti-Frizz Cream, from the mid-shaft through your ends. Once your hair is dry, gently brush out your curls until they’re full and fluffy.

4. How To Get Short Fluffy Hair

Giving your bob a short, fluffy hair revamp is super easy! The easiest way is to use your hair dryer. While you’re blowing, turn your hair upside down using a stiff brush to really give your hair that extra volume. You can also swap the brush with rollers or iron curlers, as the heat is your ally to get fluffy hair. Last but not least, for puffy hair on the go, rub some dry shampoo (we love Suave Hair Refresher Dry Shampoo) on your scalp to have a light and voluminous look.
