How To Get Volume That Lasts All Day

I've always loved long hair, which is why I haven't cut mine short in over a decade. But the longer it got, the harder it was to achieve all-day volume. Now, my roots fall flat by lunchtime, and for someone whose motto is "the bigger, the better," my hair frustrations have been at an all-time high. I'm not kidding when I say that aside from getting eight hours of sleep every night, my number-one goal is volume — and lots of it. So after a ton of trial-and-error, root lifters, and more error, I decided it was time for expert help.

In partnership with Schwarzkopf, celebrity hairstylist Marcos Diaz helped me devise an easy, foolproof way to amp up height and texture into my hair, without any extensions or sticky residue. All you need is the right products, techniques, and a little guidance to achieve runway-worthy locks. You can incorporate these steps into your daily routine, or just bust them out for a special occasion. Either way, check out the entire video below on how to cheat your way to more voluminous hair.
