Pump up the volume
Here super-talented session hairdresser and ghd Global Ambassador Adam Reed shows HAIR readers how to achieve instant volume!
Adam says: “There are many factors which can contribute to flat hair. Perhaps hair is too long, is light and fine or is super smooth and glossy; all have a tendency to sit flat and lack volume. Follow my three simple steps for instant and long-lasting volume in all hair types.
- STYLE HAIR USING THE NEW GHD RISE 3D HOT BRUSH
The ghd rise™ hot brush (£169) is designed to style dry hair as it glides effortlessly through hair from the roots adding immediate body with fullness and bounce.
This innovation has really got me excited, all my clients crave volumised hair, but struggle – this easy-to-use tool creates volume from the root, creates flicks for fringes or ends or can be used to add body throughout, whatever you want, you can get it…quickly!
2. ADD TEXTURE AND HOLD WITH STYLING PRODUCTS
For long lasting volume, combine the ghd rise hot brush with products that are going to give additional hold to your style. I always recommend spritzing roots with the ghd root lift spray (£14.50) before styling as this creates 2X more volume when using the ghd rise and prevents any style from falling flat, it’s also the perfect pick-me-up for hair that is prone to looking limp and lifeless.
3. DON’T JUST FOCUS ON THE ROOTS.
The best way to achieve full bodied volume is to ensure that you are getting even heat throughout the hair by lifting the ghd rise hot brush (£169) in at the root for eight seconds and then slowly and gently twisting it through the lengths of the hair so heat is evenly distributed throughout every inch. This is essential to achieve maximum results as volume isn’t just about the roots, it is about creating aerated volume throughout the hair which is key this season.
All styling products and tools are available in the finest salons, department stores and www.ghdhair.com.
