Fast fix

Simply You Style - - Simply You | Beauty -

When it comes to a quick fix for hair that’s look­ing lack­lus­tre or limp, Auck­land-based Frenchie & Co di­rec­tor and stylist Hannah Willmer has a few tricks up her sleeve. “We all know that back­comb­ing and teas­ing roots adds vol­ume, but us­ing your straight­en­ing irons to cre­ate a ‘tex­ture set’ can take it to the next level.”

Set your straight­en­ing iron to a medium heat. Take a small sec­tion of hair at the top of your head, or wher­ever you want ex­tra vol­ume, lift it so it’s taught, back­comb it slightly at the roots, then clamp the iron close to the roots and hold for a few sec­onds. “This adds vol­ume and tex­ture that can be re­worked with your fin­gers,” says Willmer. For added stay­ing power, ap­ply vo­lu­mis­ing pow­der to the roots or a spritz of hair­spray.
