How To Add Volume To Short Hair

Short hair is very chic, especially when it is perfectly styled. However, even shorter styles can often lack the body and dimension that longer hair has. If you find that your shorter style is lacking oomph, there are plenty of products and styles for you. In this guide, we will explore how to add volume to short hair.

What Is Volume In Hair?

In order to add volume to short hair, it’s important to understand what volume means. The volume of hair is the overall body and fullness of your hair. Volume is the amount of space that your hair occupies. Hair volume is determined by a variety of factors. Some of these include:

To put it simply, the more hair you have, the more volume you can create. When you add volume to hair, it looks good aesthetically and it also help with creating unique and dynamic hairstyles. Learning how to add volume to hair can really improve your hair game.

How To Add Volume To Short Hair

It’s easier than you think to add volume to short hair. Never worry about flat, dull hair ever again.

Choose The Right Haircut

First and foremost, good volume begins with choosing the right haircut. For short hair, layers, choppy ends and textured cuts will create the illusion of more volume. The next time you are at the salon, consult with your hairdresser on how you can find the right haircut that will suit your face shape and hair type as well as boosting volume.

Shampoo and Conditioner

The second part to adding volume to hair is to find a good shampoo and conditioner. It might be ideal to look for shampoos and conditioners that are advertised as “volumizing”. However, these are not always the best options. These products leave ingredients behind on your hair and scalp that are not easy to rinse out. This leads to build up over time that makes your hair feel heavy and weighed down (the opposite of “big and bouncy!) Additionally, buildup on your scalp can block hair follicles and hinder hair growth.

Instead, skip the “volumizing” shampoo and conditioner. Opt for a 100% clean, residue-free formula that doesn’t leave any ingredients or build up behind that will weigh hair down or block follicles.

Techniques and Products

After your hair is washed and prepped, the next step is to find the right styling products and techniques.

Blow Drying For Volume

One of the most effective techniques for adding volume to short hair is blow drying. This volumizing technique can be used for any length of hair. As a tip, use a round brush to lift your roots while blow drying your hair. This will give your hair both body and bounce.

Use Hair Rollers

Hair rollers are a classic tool and they are great for adding a boost to short hair as well. These are some of our favorite hair roller techniques:

Teasing and Backcombing

Teasing and backcombing are great if you are looking for an instant volume boost. Start by taking small sections of hair at your crown area. Use a fine-toothed comb or teasing brush and gently back comb the hair towards your scalp. This technique will create volumeand lift at the roots which will give your short hair a fuller appearance. You can also lightly smooth the top layer of hair over the teased section to keep it looking polished.

Get Volume In Hair Overnight

If you can’t wait until morning, you can also try an overnight hairstyle to boost volume. That way, you can speed up your morning without sacrificing your style.

The key to keeping volume in hair overnight? How you prep your hair pre-sleep. To have a totally clean slate, start by cleansing your hair. Make sure hair is dry at the root. Use a blow dryer at the root to ensure the base of the hair is dry and lift using your fingers to boost volume. Then it’s time to set your hair. Here are a few techniques to choose from.
