Step 1. Although it may seem counterintuitive to clean hair pre-tousling, washing with volumizing formulas will amplify your hair without creating frizz. We never stray too far from Number 4’s Volumizing Shampoo and Conditioner. The winning duo relies on a blend of natural ingredients to purify, strengthen, and revitalize damaged strands.
Step 2. Towel dry and comb in a quarter-sized dollop of volumizing mousse using a wide-toothed comb. We like Oribe Grandiose Hair Plumping Mousse, an addictive-smelling styler that thickens the hair shaft.
Step 3. Create a part and divide your hair into two sections, as if you were going to create old school pigtails. Twisting one section of your hair, wrap it into a low mini-bun and secure with bobby pins. Repeat with remaining sections of hair.
Step 4. Air dry or speed up the process by aiming a blow dryer at your buns for a couple minutes. Once your hair is dry, remove the bobby pins and unleash your loose waves.
Step 5. Spritz on a lightweight texturizing spray like amika’s un.done texture spray and use your fingers to gently separate any tight coils of hair. Finish by working a small dab of smoothing serum like TONI&GUY’s Classic Shine Gloss Serum through the ends to smooth them out and give your hair a glamorous sheen without weighing it down.
Step 6. Bask in your tousled hair awesomeness.
