Salon Secrets – 3 Simple Techniques for Creating Body in Fine Hair

Create root lift and boost volume and body in fine hair with three simple techniques. Small changes in your approach can create the root lift that doesn’t come naturally. We see many customers who are frustrated with fine hair. We encourage them to embrace small changes to transform the look and, more importantly, how they feel about their hair.

Here are 3 simple salon secrets for root lift, creating the foundations for full-bodied hair.

Start by prepping your hair. Wash and condition using the right shampoo and conditioner for your hair type. Squeeze the excess water out of your hair with a towel. Hair should be damp but not dripping wet.

Spritz a couple of pumps of Ogario London Styling Mist for Natural Hold and Volume. The super-light mist can be sprayed above the head to fall on your hair, without leaving any residue or stickiness, even on very fine hair. Blow dry as normal, ensuring you don’t over dry the hair. Hair should still be warm when you apply any of these techniques.

1         Root Roll

We love Velcro rollers for building body. Apply rollers at an angle to make the roots sit up. Four Velcro rollers should be enough, two at the crown and one at each side. Once the rollers are in place, use the hairdryer for a quick blast of heat, let the hair cool and gently remove the rollers. Heat changes the hair structure and when it cools the lift should hold.

2          Body Brush

Take a section of hair where you want to create lift, place the brush at the end of the hair, roll down to roots. Blast the root area with the hairdryer for a few seconds, leave to cool and gently remove the brush.

3          Backcomb

Using a fine toothcomb, gently back-comb the hair at the crown or the sides, wherever you want to create lift. Don’t go right to the roots, position the comb about half an inch away, ensuring you back-comb in small sections, being as gentle as possible.
