How to Achieve Maximum Volume When Air-Drying
By Keune | July 27th, 2021
Have your clients overcome the air-drying hurdle only to deal with a new set of challenges?
Transitioning from heat-styling to air-drying takes time, effort, and energy and may leave clients unhappy with inconsistent results. Once they’ve mastered what it takes to get a defined and frizz-free finish, the next challenge is to create that “I woke up like this” effortless look. Our favorite trick? Add volume in all the right places! Read on to learn our favorite ways to achieve maximum volume from a perfectly air-dried style.
Step 1: Add Volume from the Start
As hairstylists, we know the key to achieving a style lies in the prep. Passing this fact on to our clients with clear and distinct steps will elevate their style, literally. Often overlooked, cleansing and conditioning is pre-styling that makes or breaks the look. An easy way to add volume without the fuss is by adding Care Absolute Volume Shampoo and Conditioner to their routine. The added Pro-Vitamin B5 moisturizes and thickens the hair while the wheat proteins strengthen the hair. This dynamic duo works wonders on all hair types looking for a voluminous finish.
Step 2: Encourage Product Layering
Once locks are squeaky clean and ready for the next step, remind clients to remove excess moisture with a microfiber towel to cut down on friction, reducing frizz during the air-drying process. Then, speak on the importance of product layering to address a range of concerns. For example, start by working in Style Soft Mousse at the roots to add volume while keeping a soft, touchable feel. Next, add Style Curl Cream throughout mid-lengths and ends to accentuate and define individual texture patterns. The wide range of Care and Style products options are perfect for creating a customized routine.
Step 3: Get a Precise Finish
Once hair is completely dry comes every stylist’s favorite part, the finishing touches. Teach your clients how to use finishing products to enhance volume, texture, and/or keep their curls intact. One of our favorite products to add volume is Style Precision Powder. Pump this texturizing powder precisely at the root and massage it into the scalp to create instant oomph! In addition to this, clients can safeguard against frizz with a quick all-over spray of Style Humidity Shield. With a weightless finish, this spray will protect curls and waves from humidity for up to 24 hours — a must-have for the summer months!
