How to create volumized hair

The vibrant kaleidoscope of red, yellow and brown pigments of copper add the illusion of depth to thin strands of hair.

Create a shadow effect by painting dark red onto roots and a lighter strawberry blonde from mid-length to the ends.

Stack layers at the crown make the hair appear more voluminous.

 

The following are some examples of volumized hair:

dark toffee twist hair

Carmel kissed streaks on top of a dark base color add life to the hair. Adding a spherical flow of structured waves will enhance the illusion of fullness.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Spun Sugar Layers

 

Flipping face frame layers in and out create softness and fullness. Fluffy bangs and cascading layers mask thin spots and thinning at the temples.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Toasted Chestnut Coils

 

The texture from defined spirals or waves helps to add bulk to the hair.   Blow drying the hair with a diffuser and scrunching the hair will allow mega curls.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Warm Nutmeg Flip

 

Thinnest hair can appear thicker with a reddish brown hue.  Create a deep low part to create the appearance of a fuller head of hair.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Rich Cocoa Sweep

 

A deep rich espresso shade helps the hair appear fuller. Tousled locks add an angular feel that allows the hair to appear thicker.

Give the illusion of depth to hair with thin highlights which creates a contoured effect. And sultry curved waves create an overlapping effect that adds youthful volume.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Gray can have age-defying benefits. The contrast of salt and pepper strands expands hair for a fuller looking look. A sleek blow out with lift at the root creates a full, look at all angles.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Golden Honey Waves

 

Dimension can be added to find strands of hair by creating the effect of lowlights weaved in very subtly in the hair.
