Gorgeous, voluminous hair is the perfect addition to every party look. Whether you're opting for a beautiful up-do, chic effortless waves or full-on Hollywood glamour with gorgeous barrel curls; thick, full-bodied, volumised hair is an essential starting point.

Using our favourite volumising products, we have gathered all our secret tricks to help you get the hair of your dreams for the party season.

Top Tips for Voluminous Hair

1. The Perfect Shampoo and Conditioner

Gorgeous volume starts with your shampoo and conditioner. Adding in volume whilst you cleanse your hair can help to maximise your hair's fullness once you begin styling. The Full Potential range by Bumble and Bumble is perfect for transforming fine, lacklustre hair.

The Full Bodied Shampoo and Conditioner invigorate and exfoliate the scalp helping to create the optimal scalp environment which dramatically improves the look and feel of your hair. Perfect for anyone who wants fuller looking, volumised hair the Full Potential range prepares your hair perfectly for adding further volume through styling.

2. Pre-Blow Dry Product

Adding a volumising product post-shower is the perfect way to ensure you get the most out of your blow dry. The Aveda Puresciption Volumising Tonic works to add serious body and bounce into your hair without weighing it down. Enriched with Aloe and Wheat Amino Acids, the Volumising Tonic adds a beautiful shine to the hair whilst creating seriously enviable volume.

3. A Volumising Blow Dry

Changing the way you blow dry your hair can really make a dramatic difference to your  volume and fullness. Firstly, get rid of the majority of the moisture by rough drying your hair with your head upside down to create more volume at your roots.

Then, take a large round brush and use your hair dryer to blow dry the rest of your hair, wrapping your hair round the brush as you dry to create more body.

4. Use a Volumising Powder

Applying a volumising powder can help to boost your hair at the roots for gorgeous, extra volume. The Bumble and Bumble Pret-a-Powder is the perfect product to help you achieve voluminous hair without making it feel tacky or built up with product. Simply sprinkle a little powder into your roots for instant volume.

5. Texture Spray

Volumised hair is not complete without a little texture through the lengths of your locks. Adding texture using the Bumble and Bumble Thickening Dry Spun Finish will balance out the volume in your roots for beautifully formed, full-bodied hair.
