How to Volumize Short Hair?

Contrary to popular belief, there’s a lot you can do with short hair, especially if you know how to pump up the volume! So, if you like wearing your locks shorter than most, then this article is for you. We’ll help you to add texture and “oomph” to your locks for those days when you’re feeling a little more adventurous. 

“Women with short hair are really sexy. There’s something liberating about freeing yourself from the norms.”

Fabulous Designer hair is our forte and we have the means to make anyone feel like a celebrity!

Our Professional Tips for Adding Volume to Short Hair

To add bounce and life to your short locks, you can apply one or more (or all) of the following techniques. 

Use a Volumizing Spray

A quality volumizing spray can add instant “bounce” to your hair, especially if you apply it to wet locks before styling. 

We adore Rossano Ferretti Parma’s Grandioso Volumizing Spray. This weightless formula draws inspiration from Umbria, the green and lush heart of Italy. The formula has been professionally designed to give fine, thin, and short hair a natural volume boost while lifting roots for extra movement.

FACT! Grandioso Spray is an award-winning product that’s renowned for its effectiveness!

Change Your Parting

If you have always worn your hair to one side, try parting your hair differently for an instant lift. 

Because your locks eventually get used to the same parting, they fall flat over time. In order to maintain volume at the roots, we suggest that you switch up your hair’s parting and secure it in place with a holding hairspray.

Dry Shampoo “è il tuo Amico “ (Is Your Friend)

There’s a reason why your locks look fluffy and voluminous after a shampoo wash. The skin on your scalp secretes natural oils called sebum. This sebum is our body’s way of protecting our hair and keeping it naturally moisturised.

BUT, while sebum certainly is beneficial for our scalp and hair, a downside to this natural oil is that it builds up to eventually weigh your hair down so that it’s dull and limp until you wash it again. The solution? Dry shampoo!

A professional dry shampoo is a quick, effective way to stop greasy roots and listless hair in its tracks. If applied properly, dry shampoo can revive hair and add instant volume!

Simply apply 3-4 drops of dry shampoo to your fingertips and massage it into the front of your scalp, lifting your roots. Apply 3-4 more drops to your fingers and repeat the massaging action, focusing on the back of your scalp. 

Tip: for added “zhush”, flip your hair upside down, and rub a few drops of dry shampoo into the roots underneath your head.

Tease Your Hair

If you don’t mind going for a bit of a wild and dazzled look, you could always gently tease your hair.  When you tease your hair, you force the roots to stand upright, adding instant volume and plumpness to them.

We suggest that you use a comb to tease your hair section by section, backcombing it at the roots. Spray a layer of hairspray onto your strands and then softly comb out any tangles you don’t want. 

Go for Beach Waves

If your short hair is long enough, you can attempt the beach-waves look for instant volume. 

Use our Favoloso spray to add movement, body and vibrancy to your locks. Simply spray it onto damp hair before styling. 

Tip: Use your hair-dryer’s diffuser extension to create natural-looking beach-waves when you’re in a hurry or if you don’t have a curling wand. All you need to do is scrunch your hair into the diffuser and allow the heat to blow upwards. 

Hair Extensions Are a Wonderful Invention!

Hair extensions are a quick and easy way to add thickness and length to short hair. Just remember to select a set that matches your actual hair type – this will encourage the extensions to blend in better with the shorter ends of your locks.

Make Things Easy and Use a Volumizing Shampoo

If you don’t have time to primp and add extra products and styling techniques to your hair care routine, then keep things simple by replacing your regular shampoo with a volumizing alternative. Try Grandioso Extra Volume Shampoo for hair that flaunts added body and natural movement.
