Easy From The Runway Volume

NYFW was definitely, as always, a bit of contrast with super slicked-back hair to mega volume. We love a sleek look just as we some serious volume, but the later can often been difficult to achieve without doing some damage to our locks -- unless you go the smart route with a tool like VOLOOM.

We spotted gorgeous voluminous hair at Anna Sui, Tory Burch and Veronica Beard; and we love the look. So, how can we achieve this at home? Let's start with a little back story of how the VOLOOM tool works. Yeah, we absolutely wouldn't have believed any of it either unless we used it ourselves! The key to VOLOOM is the design of its unique, waffle-shaped plates which create strong layers of support underneath the visible top layer of the hair, without leaving a pattern in the hair. 


First, section off the top layer of hair: VOLOOM is made to be used on the under-layers of hair, which are covered by an untreated top layer. Just make sure that you part your hair normally, and then section off the top layer that you would like to stay smooth, and clip it off to the side. Use VOLOOM on the layers of hair underneath this top layer. That is the basic VOLOOM technique.

Next, keep the hair alongside your face smooth and untreated: Take a thin section of hair alongside your face – ½ to 1 inch wide -- and clip it off to the side with the top layer of untreated hair. It will remain untreated and smooth.

Hide any imprint under the smooth outer layer: VOLOOM works by creating structure in the under-layers of hair that are covered by an untreated top layer. When you first clamp down on hair using VOLOOM, you will see an imprint. This is the volumizing structure, or “volume pockets” that will hold up the top layers. But once the hair cools or you brush through it, this imprint will ease and soften, leaving only a slight impression and much greater hair volume..

Finally! More layers equal more volume: The most effective way to control the volume you get with VOLOOM is to control the size of the layers that you use. If you want more volume, try sectioning off thinner under-layers. The volume in the under-layers will “stack up” giving the appearance of even more volume. If you want less volume, you can section off fewer but thicker layers.
