How to get volume to your hair? That's something that I always ask myself because my hair is stick straight and pretty heavy, so curls can't last long. To get more volume the hair must be airy and you must start making volume from the moment you finished washing your hair. I have a tutorial for that - Blow Dry Basics. So after you've done that, head back here and start this amazing braid crown updo. The source of this tutorial is from Keiko Lynn, so for more info on how to make this hairstyle go there.
If your hair needs more texture, you can use a dry shampoo. This will make the teasing past a lot easier.
Spray at your roots, lifting as you go. Wait a minute or two and comb it through of else you'll be left with a powdery mess. Then divide your hair into two sections, like you're doing a half updo. back comb underneath the top half and smooth over the top.
Pin the newly teased section (make sure the top layer is smooth, to cover the mess) with a couple bobby pins. You can give the bump a little boost if you want.
Divide your hair into two sections and braid them. You can tie them using a elastic, or leave them loose.
Pull each braid to the opposite side of you head and pin them in place. You can tuck the ends underneath each braid. And that's it! Have fun!
