Beauty SOS: How To Get Big, Sexy Hair According To The Pros

V05 Plump It Up Mousse

"Plump It Up Mousse is the hair hero for ultimate body and bounce! It's lightweight formulation adds long-lasting lift without weighing hair down. Work through towel dried hair from root to tip before blow drying and use a large brush for that ultimate voluminous style."

- Aaron Carlo, [a target="_blank" href="">Vo5 [/a]Celebrity Stylist

La Biosthetique Volume Spray

"To create volume in fine hair first towel dry the hair until it is 80% dry. Then, using a good volume spray lotion (I like La Biosthetique Volume Spray) into the roots and massage in, then using a vent brush blow dry the hair and roughly pull the roots to create the volume, re-spray a second time and repeat blow drying process as before and then style as desired. This build up of product prevents the hair from falling into its natural flatness."

Living Proof Full Shampoo and Conditioner

"Full creates amazing body, plus it is silicone and oil free so it doesn't leave any greasy residue to weigh hair down."

- Chris McMillan, Jennifer Aniston's Hair Stylist

Bumble and bumble Dry Spun Finish

"When things are looking a bit flat I just spray some of this into my roots. It works a bit like a dry shampoo adding lift, volume as well as a texture".

- Lily, Blogger, [a target="_blank" href="">Lilypebbles[/a]

Bumble and bumble Pret-a-Powder

"To refresh hair and add instant volume, shake Pret-a-powder gently, like a salt shaker, at the roots. Continue working down the lengths of the hair in sections, to make sure the powder is evenly distributed. Use your hands to massage the product in at the roots. Brushing through the hair with a flat brush is also a great way to make sure product is distributed evenly and any excess is removed. You can also shake the powder into your hands and massage into spots where hair needs a bit of extra body and grip."
