The Best Volumizing Hairstyles

Posted by Khallisa Budhwani on

If you took a poll of top hair concerns, you’d get many mentions of frizz, dryness, and…lack of volume. It’s true that full, bouncy hair is the dream, but for many of us trying to attain it, the struggle is real. Products help, but can only do so much; they work far better if you give them a strong foundation—and that means starting with the cut. Here, we’ve rounded up our top five favorite volumizing hairstyles to get you on your way to lush, body-full locks.

The Angled Lob

There’s something about the optical illusion a slanted lob creates that gives the look of fullness. Not to mention this style it’s super-chic and easy to care for.

Long Layers with Textured Ends

If you want volume with a longer length, ask to add some texture to the ends of your hair. Slightly feathered layers add body without weighing hair down.

Chin Bob

A blunt, textured chin bob is such a cool-girl way to get more volume. Make sure it hits that sweet spot just below the chin and above the collarbone for maximum effect.

Curtain Bangs

Longer bangs (like the curtain trend) add volume and bounce at the top instead of having a straight, bottom-heavy style.

Winged Crop Cut

Brushing up and away from the face is one of the quickest ways to increase volume. Achieve this look with long, winged out bangs paired with a fresh, tousled crop.
