A huge trend this winter has been the returning to the 80s huge volume styling. Television shows such as Dynasty and Dallas featured big curls and glamorous waves. How we lust over Farrah Fawcett's hair and the rest of Charlie’s Angels with their wonderful voluminous layers and bangs. Farrah’s hair made her a hair icon then and today. What we love about all of these huge looks is that you can create an 80’s vibe with more rough and frizzy style texture for a wild and free look.

Alternatively if you prefer a more smoother, glamorous hairstyle with volume, think Hollywood glamour and supermodel vibe. For example, Adele’s recent look on the cover of Vogue with her locks cascading over on one side. Think Reese Witherspoon at the Oscars on the red carpet.

Our product suggestions and top tips to achieve this look at home:

Dry shampoo

We love the one by Alterna My Hair My Canvas. This is definitely a must have to add texture and volume


Hold your huge volume in place and also to help with any backcombing!

Small curling tong

Create some tight curls to brush them out for ultimate volume.

Hair oil or serum

We highly recommend the Leonor Greyl L’Huile De Leonor Greyl oil to fight off unwanted frizz and add shine and hydration with this luxurious oil.

Big round brush

The essential for creating a big blown out curtain fringe to add lift and volume.

Finally add a red lip and a diamanté hair clip on the side or create a half up half down. There you have your va va vroom hair! Pure fabulosity!
