A Few Secrets for Voluminous Hair

By June 19, 2020No Comments

We all dream about having lively locks that are full of volume. Luckily there are some tricks to bring this to fruition! We’ll provide some tips right here, but once you’re ready to put the bounce back into your hair, visit us at Salon Antoine. Our salon is located at 11092 Lee Highway in Fairfax, VA, and look forward to meeting you!


One simple way to reinvent your overall look is with a haircut. These days, there are limitless styles to opt for that will get you noticed right and left. Sometimes, it’s not even about an entire haircut, but rather, just some layers. Layers work on any face shape and make your hair instantly look fuller when you curl it or add beach waves. How else can you add some dimension? Well, we recommend going with a bob, lob, or shag cut. The bob meets at your jawline and you can even get a stacked style, which starts much shorter at the back and gradually gets longer toward the front. If you don’t want to go as short, choose its longer cousin—the lob. It ends right at shoulder level and pairs really well with long layers for oomph. Lastly, try the shag, which includes several choppy layers to add richness. The end result is a very rock n’ roll, chic, messy look that creates an amazing illusion of dimension. All it takes is the right haircut to change things up!

Whether you’re strutting around with long or short hair, some color makes all the difference. You don’t even have to jump fully in. Just some highlights of a shade or two lighter than the one you have at the moment can give you a volumizing look. To take things a little further, you can opt for several highlights throughout the hair that include a few different shades for a richer look. For a foolproof volume illusion, you might consider going with the ombré. This style first graced us in the early 2000s and hasn’t gone anywhere since because it’s stunning and can be shown off in so many ways. It starts as a dark shade at your roots and slowly gets lighter toward the end. Since not every highlight begins in the same spot, this does wonders for volume. Whether you curl it, straighten it, or do an updo style, you, and everyone else, will see movement and bountiful locks right away. New shade, new you!

To ensure that you keep your voluminous appearance for many months, you’re going to have to make sure you follow routine maintenance. For instance, getting a haircut on a regular basis is crucial. This way, you’ll always have those locks and layers that give you a boost, while looking healthy. This also gets rid of frizz and dead ends that form with how much we wash our strands and utilize heat. Speaking of heat, less is more. As tough as it may be to keep away from the straightener and curling iron, you might instead let your hair air dry or try styles that don’t require these tools, such as braids or a half-up, half-down look. Last, but certainly not least, when you’re here visiting us for a cut or color, we will chat with you about various shampoos, volumizing sprays, and products that we offer that you can use to fully take care of your locks.

Life is too short for thin and one-dimensional hair! Give us a call at Salon Antoine today to make your appointment for a brand-new look. We hope to hear from you soon.
