Volume has always been big when it comes to hair styles. Women who have thin hair always want to add more volume to their hair, and those who have thick hair always try to find a way to work the volume they already have. In today’s world, volume is key. So many of our current hair styles contain lots and lots of volume, which is reminiscent of the 1980s hair styles we would see on magazines, in music videos, and see everyday women wearing. Today, Lionesse would like to take a look at how you can make 80’s voluminous hair work for today’s styles.
Perming Your Hair
Nothing says 80’s volume quite like getting a perm. Perming methods have come a long way since the 80’s, with new technology making them far less frizzy and messy than ever before. Not only will you have gorgeous curls to work with and style on a daily basis, but you will also have plenty of added volume to work with as well – and that’s exactly what every woman in today’s world wants. This style is perfect for women with thin hair to increase their volume without having to do a whole lot of styling or damage to their hair by teasing.
Hair Teasing or Back Combing
Backcombing your hair is one of the quickest, easiest ways to get added volume to the roots and give the hair some much-needed lift. This is a great quick fix for girls with thin hair or for those who love that big hair from the 80’s. There are teasing combs available for purchase at any beauty store, and they are ridiculously inexpensive. They range from plastic combs to metallic combs, and provide all the volume and lift one could want. Hairspray will be your best friend when it comes to hair teasing, as well as dry shampoo. Simply add some dry shampoo to the roots of your hair, shake it around in your hair using your fingers, tease the hair, smooth it down on top, and spray. You will want to make sure to spray the hair underneath where the teasing was done as well. Contrary to popular belief, a teased hairstyle can and will come out in the shower with a great conditioner and shower comb.
Big Voluminous Crimpy Waves
If you want to get the 80’s look, nothing looks more 80’s than crimps and waves. You can opt for a crimping iron for a more authentic look, or get them the natural way by creating lots of small braids in your hair before bed. This will work best on wet hair. When you wake up in the morning and remove all of the braids, you will be amazed at how voluminous your hair looks, and just how very 80’s your hair looks and feels. And the best part? Tons and tons of volume. Add a little hairspray to hold the look all day long. This look will typically last a few days or so.
