Elegant Twists that Boost Volume and Steal the Show

Volume, Fine, limp hair, Other,
It’s time to shine with a fresh twist on red-carpet ready hair. This season’s on-trend twisted side-sweep is the perfect choice for your hair type and volume concerns. It gives you control over the amount of volume you want to achieve so you never have to worry about your style falling flat. Here’s how to go for glam, body and volume to achieve this twist on a classic.

Step One

Prepare hair for the big night ahead by washing with Luxurious Volume Thickening Shampoo and Conditioner. This will help make hair look and feel more voluminous right from the start. Blow-dry hair as usual, taking care to lift at the root for added volume. Once dry, make a dramatic side part. Curls can be added throughout if you want to achieve even extra movement and volume. Then, pull forward two sections of hair—one on each side of your face. Let this hair rest over your ears as you move on to Step Two.


Step Two

Sweep the remaining hair at the back of your head over the shoulder of your choice. Lightly twist and use bobby pins to secure hair at the nape of your neck. Think of it as a side ponytail without elastic tying it in place. To achieve added volume, gently backcomb at the crown before securing hair in place.


Step Three

Now comes the fun part — twisting! Take 2-inch sections of the remaining hair hanging over your ears. Twist this hair in sections and pin the twists over to the side, mixing it in with the rest of your hair. Repeat this step until all hair is securely in place. Continue to lift at the root as you go for maximum volume. After you’ve achieved your star-inspired look, set yourself up for success with a shot of
Luxurious Volume Extra Hold Hairspray.
It’ll give your twisted tresses extra hold all night.
